So...During WW2 The Soviet Union lost 20 Million Civilians and Soldiers..through war, starvation, disease etc.
In 2005 Vladimir Putin said greatest tragedy of 20th century was dissolution of Soviet Union...
Get that? Not losing 20 Million of it's people, but the fall of the Soviet Empire..
Vladimir Putin is not so much a communist or capitalist, he is an imperialist.
He want's the old Soviet Empire back.
If he takes Ukraine without any consequences, then the rest of the former soviet republics come next.
The West and the rest of the world knows this...and he knows they know...and he knows they will have to stop him if an outright invasion happens,
because it is the domino effect.
So he is trying for a "soft" acquisition...first through his puppet in Ukraine that got ousted and now through more aggressive methods, but
pretending he isn't involved.
If Putin get's Ukraine, it's just the beginning.
