I don't have any kind of military background whatsoever - if you don't count the 6 monts of compulsory military service lol - so I'm more of an armchair general, more interested in the "big picture", geopolitics and what have you.
I'm studying history in my local university, and I'm trying to specialize in the Soviet Union during cold war. I guess I find it so interesting due to the fact that back then the world was balanced and I grew up during the few decades of US centric unipolarity, that has - thank god - come to an end. So that is why I follow Russian and Chinese military and economic developments closely and wish them (and for everyone else outside the US-controlled west) all the best in their struggle for more multipolar world.
And as everyone can guess, russophobia is going strong at the moment here in Finland. Oh, and Putin is the new Hitler!! That's what they are telling on the news, anyway. Just wanted to let you guys know.
