I did a thread on this almost a year ago.
I had a lot of stuff in that thread on Ukraine officials and military saying stuff . You don't know it, but Soros overthrew Ukraine's democratic government in 2013, installing faswcist elements of Hitler style Nazi politicos. Those guys got voted out Zelensky is a kind of moderate trying to walk theline, but he can't throw all the corrupt bums out because the West defends them and bankrolls them with all kinds of wierd deals like the Biden's taking payola and threateing to withdraw US aid if we let these scumbags getweeded weeded out with law enforcement investigations and court trials.
I think then, when Ukraine's military massed to retake Crimea and the kDonbass, russia did some exercises with about 140K troops
Putin has spoken clearly that the Soros gambit and the effort to draw Ukraine into NATO was a violation of the treaties and agreements around 1994 that Ukraine would be independent andnon-aligned. Putin siad, regarding the UN governance model, that violating agreementslike this transformed the UN from "new law" concept into a "no law" institution run by outright thugs you just cannot trust.
Russia, or Putin, now an entrenched dictator, openly questioning the virtue of the UN.. But he is a Russian nationalist who does a lot of groundworkto validate his interest in Russia's welfare.
I saw the natural gas pipeline to Germany as a concession by the Biden Admin Trump would not have done. I think Russia is also going to sell various things to China.
China is also about to put the UN out of business as the latest form of UK imperialism.
UN globalism is a damned stupid pipe dream worse than dope. We need to be strong enough nobody is going to mess with us.
