Russian propagandist Solovyov:

“We will not stop at Kyiv, Warsaw, Paris. We will stop when we feel secure.”

What is security for Russia? The destruction of NATO?

Russia has been living in “counteraction and struggle” with external “bad enemies” for a very long time. This is how the Russian government consolidates society and explains all the problems to it.

Therefore Solovyov is right - they will not stop.

    I mean of course they won’t stop at Kyiv. They can’t reach it.

    Here’s a wild thought, maybe the best security comes from being a good neighbor and cooperating with people around you.

      Russians can’t trust. They grow up in a culture where corruption is common and lies more prevalent than reality. The only way a Russian can ever trust a thing is to do it themselves. The only other option is to remove anyone else who can do it better and then claim the advance as a Russian victory.

      Russia can’t be trusted by anyone anymore. Russians will be out for themselves, as they always are.

    lol. Blyats can’t take Ukraine and NATO hasn’t done more than supply weapons and intelligence.

    If the west needs any more encouragement to assist Ukraine, here it is.

    The choice is help Ukraine now, or kick the can down the road and lament when Russia is at your borders.

      That might seem scarier if they weren’t nearly 2 years into their 3 day war against their smaller, poorer next-door neighbour.

      Russia is a terrorist shithole state that needs to be dismantled. I wish my country was doing more than providing arms and training.

    Because Russia is being invaded so often.

      Historically, their brand of propaganda is rooted in almost millennia-long trauma the Russian people have suffered since Genghis Khan took over Russia back in the 1200’s, and other assholes have tried to invade them before.

      Their way of dealing with it was to expand to have large swaths of land between them and anyone who’d try again. It’s why Russia is the largest country in the world by land area but only small parts of that land are actually developed.

        To a mid-century standard at best, let’s be fair.

          True. Still, history is history. I wish there was a way to heal the trauma of the Russian people so they stop submitting to dictators and acting like this.

            Mid-20th century is what “mid-century” has come to mean in modern parlance.

    It’s Nazi Germany all over again. Once you declared “total war” there is no way to escalate further and also no way to back down again.

    Then just die of fright you absolutely cowards, if you think that defending hospitals, schools and civilian apartment buildings is a threat to Russia then just die. If you think a free and honest press is a threat to your government then just die because no sane person will look at your actions and let you continue unabated

      Pretty much sounds like a declaration of war against Poland and France, and thus NATO to me.

    You have to have leverage to negotiate. Is losing 500k standing troops a leverage position?

    Only Russian aggression has made Russia insecure. Because now their borders are disputed.
    Russia could have been perfectly secure, by just being a decent neighbor, and not invade other countries.
