Got it! The EU and US are so implacably evil that people are risking their lives to go there rather than flocking to Mother Russia, who clearly loves them so much.

I am glad that people are starting to ask questions.
Syria should never have gotten this out if hand. It is the policy if funding rebel groups and attempting to starve Assad that has been responsible for the debacle.
It's a strange occurrence when Russia is leading the way in common sense, but it is exactly what has happened with Syria. Putin is actually correct in supporting Assad in order to overcome ISIS .
Nothing has really changed in decades. US funds extremist to invade and destroy countries as they did in Afghanistan and when Russia announced that US was funding the Afghan war, the world laughed.
Decades latter Brezinski admitted that Carter and himself approved that operation to bankrupt Russia by forcing them into a war when they least could afford it. He was proud of himself and boasting about it.
The question Russia has to ask itself today, is this another attempt by US/UK to force Russia into another war they cannot afford. It does seem so.
You've gotten a bit muddled. It was the Soviet Union that invaded Afghanistan.
"Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?
Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.
Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?
Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?
Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?"
There are at least two editions of this magazine; with the perhaps sole exception of the Library of Congress, the version sent to the United States is shorter than the French version, and the Brzezinski interview was not included in the shorter version.
Just dismiss anything that interferes with your belief system as fodder and you will sleep like a baby without a care in the world.
As for shouting from roofops, I didn't see any reaction from the public when no WMD was found in Iraq. Who pays for the life's of the children that died from starvation and disease. Guess no one really cares about anything but their own materialistic lives. Such is the world we live in.

Nice twist, always somehow with you, its Russians fault, isn't it… Isn't it!
Where do I say that? With you, however, it's always America's fault, isn't it?
No. its you who deceive yourself! Brezinski was also video interviewed by a Iranian girl living in US, he confirmed everything in the french interview and more, so I don't need any more proof.

I am anti war, not anti american, but I am used to being labeled that by the warmongers.
Then join me in condemning Russia for meddling in Ukraine's politics, invading and annexing Crimea and supporting violent rebels.
Today I believe that our political and economic world is controlled by satanist that knowingly mass murder children for power and profit. They exist because we are more interested in our own well being than that of others.
