Galeotti was one of my lecturers at uni. He's top of his craft and there's not much about Russia he doesn't know. No boring lectures from him. We used to sit and listen to every word.

His Ukrainian history is 3rd rate revisionism. Putin’s history of Ukraine is largely correct. Galleotti is another liberal henchman flogging books and his services to NATO etc, he is so blinded by his own ideology it leaves a totally infective chronicler. Just like Ferguson and covid, most of our intellectuals are caught as incompetents.

I'm rooting for the Ukrainians. I hope they make this Putin's Waterloo. Having said this, I should point out how limited the US military was in what the US govt. would allow it to do. There never was any hope that the US military could win under these conditions. The Taliban on the other hand was as ruthless as it gets. About all the US military could do was keep the Taliban from taking over altogether. I suspect the Russian military will be allowed to be far more ruthless than the US military is in what it will do to put down the resistance. Look at what happened in Chechnya. If the same happens in the Ukraine, will they be able to stand up? I don't know. I just wish that we Americans had given them the kind of weaponry that would allow them to inflict real pain on the Russian invaders.

As an Lithuanian, we have been on similar situation. We fought one of the longest Guarella warfare in modern Europe ever since WW2. Forest Brothers, Book smugglers and eventually Baltic way. 30 years ago, Russian tanks roll over innocent civilians, who were protesting, holding hands and singing. And yes, i was there as a 12 years old. Taking territory is essentially easy part. Holding it is a Hard part. Patriots will rise, and challenge Russia into another Guarella warfare. Ukraine was one of the first countries to accept our independence, therefor i hope all the best for them, and finally achieve freedom they want.

Sir Lithuanian Zemaiciai and Aukstaiciai have same roots and where able to organize partizan resistance in to late 50s. Ukraine east and west have been antagonized by successive Kiev governments. The only solution to stop civil war in Ukraine I see is split between east and west. CIA pushed this country in to 8 years civil war with no end. The only man who can fix it now is Putin. This man has solid track record stopping many wars started by CIA operatives. I have no doubt he will fix this one.

Boom! Check this article out! Articles of Bio weapon labs with US / Ukraine! The DoD Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded 11 bio-laboratories in the former Soviet Union Country Ukraine, bordering on Russia. Documents obtained from the US Federal contracts registry show that USAMRU-G is expanding its activities to other US allies in the region and is “establishing expeditionary capabilities” in Georgia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Latvia and any future locations. The samples will be tested for antibodies against fourteen pathogens: Bacillus anthracis Brucella CCHF virus Coxiella burnetii Francisella tularensis Hantavirus Rickettsia species TBE virus Bartonella species Borrelia species Ehlrichia species Leptospira species Salmonella typhi WNV The amount of blood draw will be 10 ml. Samples will be stored indefinitely at the NCDC (Lugar Center) or USAMRU-G and aliquots might be sent to WRAIR headquarters in US for future research studies.

I knew all of this, but this scholar did an amazing job at being concise and clear in his answers. I think his most important point was that we should be looking at this through the lens of Putin’s personal vanity than pragmatic interests. Just like he said, it’s such an easy, but VIP, lens to look through. edit: I want to add, that I still think keeping Ukraine out of NATO is still Putin’s highest motivating factor. I couldn’t see the US after all allowing Mexico, for example, to become a treaty bound ally of Russia with a Russian military base on their soil/the US boarder. So, why would they expect Russia to accept the same thing?

A real treasure to find this calm and meditative analysis. Great interview. I would just add that one important element that was overlooked in this discussion is the self-declaration made by the US, not long after the Soviet Union came to end. In 1992 the US said: "The U.S. must show the leadership necessary to establish and protect a new order that holds the promise of convincing potential competitors that they need not aspire to a greater role or pursue a more aggressive posture to protect their legitimate interests." This is a quote from the so-called 'Wolfowitz Doctrine' which basically stated America's position on its foreign policy for years to come - notably just after the cold-war supposedly came to an end. How the heck would Russia read this back then, especially when Russia's offer of friendship was basically snubbed? Not to mention much later the US intervention in 2014 during the so-called 'revolution' in Ukraine that toppled a democratically elected Yanukovych. He may have been a bad president, but what happened to the democratic process where he could have been voted out in less than a year? Evidence seems to point overwhelmingly to US intervention again, notably assisted by former US Asst Sec of State, Victoria Nuland.
@trilithon108
@trilithon108 2 жыл бұрын
Always pointing to US or EU are sometimes excuses or easy ways to describe an event. Yanukovich was elected 2010 and over three years later he was voted out as he rejected an agreement for closer European ties, insisting on his Russian ties. Ukrainians have tasted both meals - Communism and Democracy. They overwhelmingly prefer the taste of freedom and Democracy. It doesn't require blame or meddling, it's a free choice for them.

A longer war with more casualties (including civilian), accident escalation with a neighboring NATO country, and ultimately a limited or all out nuclear war. This is now a very real possibility. I knew as soon S Biden was elected there could be a WW3. I had the same thought about Hillary. I don't care about Trump but he wouldn't have f**ed up so bad in almost every single way.

Russian sons and Ukrainian citizens are dying because the world has changed too much for one small frail old man to handle. Strikes home just how archaic and destabilising a single leader system actually is. Moving forward every nation needs to have more than one person pulling all the strings when it comes to economical and military matters.

I am on a similar opinion. I think there might be a civil war in Russia before this is over... Way too many Russians feel shame, sadness and anger due to this war. They are also oppressed and kept in check through the application of fear. Add the poverty that will hit Russia due to the sanctions and Russians might get angry enough to do something about Putin. I wonder if the Russian authorities reinforced the prison holding the opposition leader, if he is still alive and able, he might get broken out. We should watch for that. I say the best thing to do with Russia after the war is to help them build a true democracy, give the Russians hope that corruption is not the only way of politics for them. Turn them into allies of Europe and no one will ever need to fear them again. Solve their problems that led to the appearance of these oligarchs and fascist leaders and we could earn the loyalty of Russians. We could win a larger prize as well since many dictatorships allied themselves with Putin's regime. Take that away and suddenly countries like China lose a major military ally which will limit their options to a point they won't start regional warfare. If we only sanction Russia and leave them in poverty, we'll only earn an enemy that returns after a few decades, similar to Germany after World War I. Punish only the war-criminals, the leaders who allowed this tragedy to happen, but after that it is important to HEAL the country, earn the appreciation, respect and love of the Russian people so radicals like Putin have zero chance of gaining power.

This was called the Budapest Agreement. Well, we see how that turned out. And it was BIG NATO nations US and UK which URGED Ukraine to give up it's nuclear missiles to RuSSia. SO all of this RuSSian talk of how NATO nations want to use Ukraine to threaten RuSSia militarily is a BIG RuSSian LIE!! Because IF NATO and Ukraine ACTUALLY wanted to threaten RuSSia militarily, Ukraine would NOT have given up it's HUGE nuclear missile arsenal over to RuSSia. So yes Ukraine and the West failed to make RuSSia a friend. But it was NOT Ukraine's fault or the West's fault. It was RuSSia's FAULT!! RuSSia has been and will always be a TERRORIST nation. RuSSia is the SIZE of a MONSTER because of RuSSia's MONSTER SIZE appetite for other nations' territories!!
