So 2022?

Yes. In 2022 Putin is invading nations and threatening to use Nukes. 

That is why he is a threat to Europe.

Which it specifically promised not to do in order for USSR to feel comfortable enough to grant independence.

I won't give you an example because you'll play "whataboutism" but it's happened many, many times with the US removing certain leaders or otherwise intervening in independent nations actions (illegally) 

If Russia didn't start aggressively meddling in Ukrainian business, maybe Ukraine would stay independent. (edit to clarify: wrong choice of word, neutral, because our countries in NATO stay very much independent. Non-aligned is a better choice of word too... damn provocateur, I just went with that trollsy choice of word... grrrrr)

If Russia didn't break their obligations from Budapest Memorandum, if Russia wasn't attempting genocide in Ukraine today... 

After Feb 24th, only an idiot would trust Russia. 

More weapons for Ukraine, more sanctions for Russia, faster joining processes for Ukraine, closer relations with our sisters and brothers who are being attacked by Russia.

Together to victory, as Ukrainians would say. (While Putler only has people like you. Serve him right.)

When did Putin become irrational and a threat to Europe?

Why dont you just run through the Whitehouse talking points from 2014 again?

I hope your getting paid to spread that propaganda

 

When he slithered into power. 

I'm not interested in whataboutism and also, it's more than evident that Russian genocidal aggression against Ukraine cannot be lawyered into some sort of Ukrainian or Western fault. It's Putler's fault. 

Nope, I'm doing this for free. I know you can't understand, but there are things EEuropeans not only would do for free, they would literally die for them.

Yes.

Got it. So you believe Putin invasion is justified.

All those deaths are on your hands then. You should reconsider your morals when your threshold for invasion being justified is so low.

I wonder how people would comment about all of this if Russian invaded Finland instead of the Ukraine?

Well done mate. It takes a bigger person to change their mind when presented with evidence, rather than dig in your heels and double down on your position. 

Nato expansion towards Russia was always a serious threat. This guys analysis from 7 years ago sounds like it could have been written this year its so pertinent.

I am willing to consider all sides of the argument, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I fully agree with every point that is being made. Do I think that NATO expansion, eastward, fuelled the flames of Russia? Yes, but not because NATO was intentionally pushed eastwards by the US - I think it was merely a byproduct of increased Russian aggression, towards which the Baltic states felt unsafe… and for good reason.

The more I read about it, the more I am convinced that my suspicion has been correct all along - NATO expansion has been used by Russia to attempt to justify Putin’s long-term goal of re-unifying Soviet states into a conglomerate. Why do you think he is eyeballing Lithuania, and even drafted a bill that is questioning Lithuania’s status as a sovereign NATO state? Why do you think he wanted guarantees that Ukraine would not join NATO?

All of these points of justification that Russia is perpetuating are just smoke and mirrors for the real crux of the issue, which is that he wants to resurrect the Soviet Union.

I also think that he is gambling on the idea that his war of attrition against Ukraine will essentially cause aid fatigue in Western nations, but I think he underestimated NATO resolve in the matter. Realistically, I do think that Russia will make and hold some short-term territorial gains, but that will not be sustainable. The soldiers occupying these territories will require food, medical supplies, etc, and we know that these resources are not infinite, and will become even more difficult to provide due to the harsh economic sanctions, whereas Ukraine will continue to receive aid packages from Western nations indefinitely.

As an aside, I think that, eventually, NATO is going to get dragged into the armed conflict, and I think that it is going to have something to do with Poland, or Lithuania.

And this is the reason for the latest pro-Russian keyboard offensive. But Putler's growing short of bots and trolls too. Who knows why :D

Just add it to all the transgender suicides I've caused and my body count must be up there with Stalin...

Well at least more than the Clinton's have killed.

"Justified" is probably the best word, rather than "is right". He can literally point to papers showing his justification. Minsk agreement, 1991 Ukrainian independence agreement, all these things give some kind of justification.

Ideally you would take these things to an international court or the UN to get resolution

Those first two comments provide a lot of insight into how you think and are positioned. Interesting.

My understanding of the Lithuania situation is that Lithuanian authorities are stopping russian vehicles traveling to Kaliningrad.

Russia sees that as picking a side

I'm just saying it's not the first time you accuse me of "having blood on my hands" or however you want to put it.

It's a common tactic of yours to blame me (of all people) for deaths caused by others

Lithuania had picked the side 30+ years ago. 

Lithuania is in the EU and NATO. They are applying sanctions, as they should. 

 

edit to add: To express my WTF... "picking sides"... W in the actual F?

If you believe Putin's invasion is justified, than you believe the deaths are justified.

Edit: I also don't recognize your account. So unless you're being a sock puppet I really don't know when I would of accused you of blood on your hands before.

In the first 30mins of the video you posted, the lecturer talks about what would finish Russia off. He said that if you wanted to destroy Russia you would encourage them to expand their territory to the former USSR. The attempt would be disasterous.

The lecturer states that is not Russias goal at all. It's all about buffer states. Ukriane and Georgia

Oh my sweet summer child.

When someone breaches a contract, should there be consequences? 

Why don't you go poke a bear with a stick and then tell it it's not justified to be angry at you. I'm sure you'll be safe with your virtue signals

See. You agree that all the massacred Ukrainians by Russia are justified. 

You're a bad person.

It's typical excuse of all aggressive criminals, from domestic violence perpetrators to genocidal dictators: 

See what you made me do to you?  

 

Russia is attacking Ukraine, breaking conventions, committing atrocities. But it must be someone else's fault, according to Russia, the perpetrator of invasion, war crimes and crimes against humanity. 

Up to Feb 24th, it was possible to search for more or less stupid excuses for Russia, because maybe they can be brought to reason if they're given a chance. 

They used that chance to orchestrate the worst war in Europe since WWII. 

After Feb 24th, any excuse-maker for Russia should die of shame. But they've got no shame.

Lithuania is not stopping russian vehicles from passing. Vehicles from Russia transporting certain materials, for example metals, are not allowed passing due to EU wide sanctions, not Lithuania specific sanction. People and food are still allowed.

Russia can claim all they want, the reality is they have no international legal basis.

Russia is considering revoke Lithuania independence decree, they can, and Portugal can revoke Brazil independence as well, at the end of the day these are sovereign nations. Ucranians are also threatening older decrees giving Moscow a certain status, do you think it's something "real"?

The army of the Russian Federation has launched about 500 strikes on the Ukrainian civilian infrastructure this week.

...

Russia commits 100-200 war crimes every day, the Prosecutor General stressed.

- end of quote - 

 

This is what shameless Putlerians wish they could excuse.

The video wessel posted at the 43min mark just before questions covers this point clearly.

He says he gets grief for giving his presentation in the west for being an apologist. However he says that a "neutral" Ukraine would be best for not only Ukrainians but for the world. He says that the west insisting on EU and Nato membership is forcing Ukraine to take an "agressive" stance towards Russia.

Insisting on EU and Nato has lead to these deaths. It was an entirely predictable outcome when considering the geopolitics of the area.

Why would you encourage an action you knew would lead to a war?

Reznikov, may your words travel swiftly from your lips straight into the ears of God.

 

https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3515770-reznikov-deployment-of-air-defense-systems-in-ukraine-should-be-part-of-natos-strategy.html

“Once again, the russian terrorists have committed war crimes: missile strikes against a number of peaceful Ukrainian cities. The insidious nature of those attacks is underscored by the fact that they are made either from the depth of russian federation, from the territory of Belarus or from the waters of the Caspian and Black Seas. This is a strategic challenge for the security of the entire Europe. A swift response to this challenge should consist of two parts,” Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov posted on Facebook.

As noted, the first part is the strengthening of sanctions. “It is necessary so that russia could not manufacture and maintain high-tech weapons, which currently contain many components supplied by NATO countries.”

The second part, according to Reznikov, is the rapid deployment of an effective air and missile defence systems in Ukraine.

And if Canada decided to join the Warsaw pact in 1965? Would that have been a threat to the US?

I think the Cuban missle crisis proved the point.

But "an independent nation joining an alliance is not justification....." 

One rule for you, one for Russia 

But it’s not 1965, and Ukraine was nowhere close to becoming a NATO member, because let’s be honest, if Ukraine was a serious contender for a NATO membership, Putin would never have invaded.

The irony is, Ukraine is now closer than ever before to NATO, EU and UN membership.
