Same thing was said about Croatia and Yugoslavia, that was the 8th military power in the world at the time, but bloody hell look at what happened.
White on white crime.
If Russia wins or West gave them way out, world as we know it is done! People must be ready for decade of war and destruction.But, i dont think that Russia have strenght to win. I guess we have to wait and see.
Putin stooge Ritter is full of crap. He's another Chemical Ali.
This guy writes opinion articles for Russian state media... and is a convicted sex offender who has been caught soliciting young girls online and indecent exposure to a minor etc... seriously, check him out before buying into the rhetoric too much
Look I'm sorry that you're living in a twentieth-century mindset but I look at this from a twenty-first-century mindset limited thermal nuclear war is not just possible it's inevitable and we must prepare for it
Hey you you make many very good points that are all good for the twentieth-century for a cold war and two superpowers but do you understand is an entire Doctor around limited nuclear war by third-party States and as much as people like you want to pretend that this is an impossibility because of they understand the kid was not possible know we're talkin about Stacy jannat view nuclear war is unwinnable they absolutely Dulce is winnable and in fact in some very real ways they see it is the only option they have and so the idea that they won't be willing to use these nuclear weapons therefore defensive systems to protect against just nuclear weapons are foolish because no one is foolish enough to use them that's stupid read modern Doctrine 1991 the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of the Rogue state nuclear policy Pentagon 1997
One thing for sure the Russians will never forget the Ukraine people there victory will be bittersweet wars not over yet
This guy is a CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER. NO KIDDING. IGNORE HIS BS. HE'S A COMMUNIST SYMPATHIZER.
Hard to trust the word of a man who was convicted of messing with underage girls
There is no way Rusha would let USA control Ukraine coz it wont be NATO it would be just USA which will destroy Rusha in every way having Chernobyl on USA fingers, Main pipes control and having USA closer to Moscow he is gonna send kids and woman if he has to before he looses I think, but one thing I'm sick of paying 7% interest and everything else that's has gone up by 50%. telling me Ukraine Ukraine. Either go full Nato and see where this goes so we all start fresh if we make it or tell Ukrainians to stop bro coz if this drags for few more years gonna kill all of us UK is going mad with prices People not gonna be able to pay this bills bro you crazy or what? I feel sorry for what's happened to them I fully do and I don't wish this to anybody I went through it myself being Kosovan but the World its at risk. Struggling to pay this new prices and I have a good job and all I'm hearing them going up again and again kind of on scary levels.
I don't get it they was the biggest country in Europe why the fuck you had to start this bull. If they did not have the corruption and stop stealing from their own country they would of had some crazy standards and enjoy life. Putin now its burning it to ground and we all watching on TV but we all gonna pay for it and god knows how many years is going to take to rebuild, its a joke Incident people are being massacred and dying for some rich dudes and the whole world is being effected to some scary levels. Ether go full pressing buttons or do some solution coz this is stupid if it drags for 2 more years a lot of country's gonna collapse with economy
What planet are you from?
This is complete rubbish - here Girkin - a extreme Russian fascist and FSB officer says Russia is stuffed! Seriously you guys are so off the mark! youtu.be/Xp3F_6Qnq08 youtu.be/Xp3F_6Qnq08
WOW, I'll bet Putin is very, very proud of this guy. Ritter would do very well in Russia, alongside Putin, that is a given here. I also noticed information of Ritter's arrest records as other commentators pointed out. Ritter should just leave, and go join Russia. He is actually pointing out everything Putin said.
This is a pro-Russian speech any way you slice it.
Yeah, the same analysis in 1776 when the greatest power on earth said they could stomp the shit out of a few colonists any day of the week. Learn your history. I understand this was your view a few months ago. What is your opinion now?
Anything can happen. Russian invasion into Afghanistan took 9 years and it failed miserably. Russia even lost 1st Chechen war.
