I partially agree with you.
I don't blame Ukraine for wanting to take the weapons from this armed group (if that's what they're actually doing) but at the same time the
current Ukrainian government came to power the same way...aggressive tactics.
Russia may go on to say that they must protect their interests in the area, but if I were Russia I would do the same (not saying it's right or wrong
as previously mentioned this whole thing is rather complicated). But if Russia wants to help a group of people who are proactively fighting against an
anti-Russian regime (Ukraine Government) then can you blame them?
As I saw someone mention in another thread...what if Quebec or even Alaskan separatists were to become buddies with Russia, gain their support and
even go as far as arm/fund them....I'm sure USA & Canada wouldn't be very happy.
I'm ot saying it's right, but just pointing out my perception of the situation.
As for the RT spin, all outlets are known to spin but RT is pretty accurate for a state sponsored media outlet even though their propaganda can be
rather extreme at times in the way that they are clearly anti-West while most other outlets are pro-West.
I understand fully what you're saying, don't think it hasn't crossed my mind, but Ukraine has tried to open talks with these separatists, which
makes you wonder why, we have seen countless cases of Russian spetznaz agents and protests tourists from Russia caught in the region
I think Russia knows full well and has know for over a decade Ukraine was leaning towards the EU and a messy divorce Russia, Russia is just playing
dangerous games out of shear jealousy and frustration
Ultimately it's what Ukraine wants, and no matter how people twist it... Russia does not have the right to be destabilising and meddling in Ukraine,
it's not about what if it was Canada and Russia and the US, it's about Ukraine, the UN should have stepped in... Not Russia or the EU & US
It's a mess and the people of Ukraine are the ones who are going to suffer, as far as I can see, Ukraine will have an election the Interim government
is only temporarily in place, yet Moscow and a handful of separatists want to go to war over it... Do you think the majority of Ukraine does?do you
think the EU or the US does?
Russia is the aggressor and we all know why
