There is an unbelievable amount of propaganda and bullshit surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Everything from NATO adoption to US/Ukrainian bioweapons labs.
I’m believe deeply in Occam’s Razor, and seek out the simplest rational explanation for things.
Putin came to power in 2000. He is an old KGB agent who deeply believes in the old Soviet system.
For the old Soviet Russians, they look longingly at a time when the Soviet Union was a global superpower; before Russia became a failing nation ranked 57 by per capita GDP, a birthrate below replacement, and one of the highest opiate addiction problems in the world.
He wants Soviet strength once again.
He wants Ukraine for the same reasons Stalin did: lots of farm land, abundant natural resources, and warm water ports.
Stalin killed Ukrainian civilians to try and break them into being obedient Soviet citizens. Putin is pulling the same play from the same book.
There is no 4-D chess here. It’s 1917 all over again.
As Russian repeats one of its worst parts of history, the Western World has decided to do so as well. Namely, the interwar period.

This is insane. A hospital in Munich, Germany sent this letter where they announce that "from now on and until further notice, we will not treat Russian and Belarusian citizens."

Russian citizens are being destroyed and destroyed discriminated against for the actions of their government.
Russian athletes are being ejected from competition and Russian cats can’t compete in cat shows.
None of this hurts Putin.
After WWI, the world isolated and discriminated against Germany and hurt German citizens because the German government invaded Belgium and France.
This led to the hyperinflation of the Weimer papiermark, the collapse of the Weimar Republic, the election of Adolf Hitler, the rise of the Third Reich, and WWII.
So, the Western World is going to isolate and discriminate against Russian civilians because Putin invaded Ukraine until Russia. It’s going to break the Russian people, crush their economy, and drive them into povery.
What comes next is a Russian Hitler who overtly states he wants to build a Second Soviet Union, one so powerful enough that the rest of the world can’t crush it.
Go read the translation of early Hitler speeches. He tapped into a legitimate German grievance about what the world was doing to the German people.
This time, Russian Hitler has nukes and the backing of China.
I’m not saying let Russian conquer Ukraine.
I’m just saying taking your anger against Putin out by tormenting Russian civilians from your moral high horse is a bad fucking idea.
Don’t get mad at me and call me a Russian puppet.
I’m just seeing patterns in history unfold.
