The Russians are doing that to themselves.Funny.
Honest question. Why the hate for Russia? I get the Putin and team. And I get the historical hate of the USSR and Communism. But I think the West (for lack of a better term) needs a strong Russia something. There is a kingdom out there that does very much covet lands in Russia. Also Russia could be an ally dealing in the Muslim world and Middle East. I think that has been a great mistake of the last 20 years.
How do we get the current Russia to feel safe and secure in their current borders? The world would totally happy to see Russia just stay the size it is. The other options of a China pushing North and West, Turkey going Ottoman v2, and other Muslim area carved off is not a great situation for the world.
I’d love for a western learning Democratic Russia to exist, but the Russians need to fight Putin etc for that.
