In all seriousness I don't think Putin is worried about the US trying to take over Russia.
You couldn't do it - impossible in every way shape and form.
What a nonsense article...
The U.S. military is drawing on its own experiences to teach the Ukrainians how best to survive under heavy artillery barrages, tank and sniper attacks,
Really? When was the last time the US military was under such attack? Bastogne? Do they forget about the great Patriotic war that Ukraine fought?
the US is there to provoke Russia to do something stupid. The quicker they do something stupid that we provoke the quicker we can go to war. Spend money, make people rich, remove the population and blame the REDS!
"Well, we don't normally comment on the CIA director's travel, but given the extraordinary circumstances in this case, and the false claims being leveled by the Russians at the CIA, we can confirm that the director was in Kiev this weekend as part of a trip to Europe.
The West must understand that, to Russia, Ukraine can never be just a foreign country. Russian history began in what was called Kievan-Rus. The Russian religion spread from there. Ukraine has been part of Russia for centuries, and their histories were intertwined before then. Some of the most important battles for Russian freedom, starting with the Battle of Poltava in 1709 , were fought on Ukrainian soil. The Black Sea Fleet — Russia’s means of projecting power in the Mediterranean — is based by long-term lease in Sevastopol, in Crimea. Even such famed dissidents as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Joseph Brodsky insisted that Ukraine was an integral part of Russian history and, indeed, of Russia.
Russia and the West, and least of all the various factions in Ukraine, have not acted on this principle. Each has made the situation worse. Russia would not be able to impose a military solution without isolating itself at a time when many of its borders are already precarious. For the West, the demonization of Vladimir Putin is not a policy; it is an alibi for the absence of one.

They reacted when the US installed a puppet regime after throwing out the democratically elected government.
We want Russia to back off Ukraine and surrounding countries.
WE DON'T WANT TO OCCUPY RUSSIA.
On the other hand, if the US wasn't there Russia likely would have fully invaded Ukraine by now.

Cool Runnings amigo.
Having trouble with your translator there comrade?
Putin needs to dock his pay. I think that was an attempt at an insult but it's hard to tell.
I don't think I've ever seen someone stutter in a text message before. putin needs to dock his pay. I'm not sure but I think that was an attempt at insulting. Or a recipe for chicken curry.
Besides...Russia isn't the one positioning tanks, troops, and rapid reaction forces on every country that borders the US...are they?
