Has not Russia been the country that has benefited most from the instability there?
a reply to: swanne
So what Stalinist Russia did doesn't matter anymore? Let us forget how men can turn into monsters when given the right conditions, because this would be too inconvenient in any pro-Russia comments. Perhaps some people like to keep in touch with History. You know, so to learn from our mistakes.
Russia used the instability as an excuse to snatch Crimea. That sounds like a benefit to me.
Nonetheless, U.S. media, with little investigation of their own, have woven the allegations into a near-consensus narrative of “Putin’s Russia.”
They already owned it.
