Well the nukes thing Zelensky brought up at the Munich security conference, where he received a cold answer from the Germans. That was only a few days before the invasion.
I am pretty sure the reactions of Germany will totally be effecient enough to the Ukro-fascists to know Big Brother is not approving of this, but I think they are more oriented on the original Big Brother Hitler or more Stepan Bandera. Germany has no say in anything and if Ukraine wants to get something they could, they have everything necessary to do it. That means, this verbal threat is not carrying the same weight as a threat from Zimbabwe and needs to be taken serious.
The biolabs - they were only brought up a few days ago. Maybe they do exist. But I doubt it's for creating bioweapons against Russians. Something like that will just spread to the rest of the world.
Probably just some biological and viral research the US army is doing overseas because it's too risky to do it on its own territory.
To dangerous to be worked on in the US? Well there is a good reason why it can not be worked on right in Russia's garden! The US has certainly not worked on some fungus and looking at what the US was doing in Wuhan where everyone was "freaked out" about a "deadly" virus then we need to take care of every one of the facilities created by Nazis and US world mafia.
It's just some Iraq WMDs type allegation. I don't take it seriously
Russia is not known to have ever created a false flag or pretext to make an invasion. Ukro-fascists have been genociding eastern Ukrainians for 8 years, they are literal Nazis. This was enough reason and justification along with NATO at its borders. This certainly has nothing to do with Iraq WMD false flag of the US. Russian media is blocked in the entire West so who they gonna tell that? To the russians? They are in full support to liberate Ukraine from Nazis anyways, I don't see how this would even affect any person's opinion from being against to supporting.
There definately were problems. The British naval base. The Bayraktars. The integration with NATO. The group of forces north of the Donbass.
And maybe the war would only have become more difficult if it was launched later.
Dunno. I think it's Putin himself that managed to back Russia into a corner. And with all this Nord Stream 2 thing as well. And then maybe yes, war was the only option. Still Putin's fault, even then.
I do not know what is up with you, but as a Russian speaking guy, who knows the language and that Putin is not a maniac like the West portrays him as, you should know that Putin did call the West constantly "our partners" while the West openly called Putin Dictator, Murderer, Enemy, Fascist, Tsarist, Communist and what not. What exactly did Putin do wrong?
Nord Stream 2 was US's fault, they put sanctions without pretext on Europe if they would move forward with that deal, then they invented Navalny being almost "killed" by Novichok, which is obviously totally made up nonsense. That fucker looks better after Novichok just like both Skripals while people who use anthetamine look worse? How is that even possible? That shit should kill entire battalions but those fuckers survive and then proceed to make such pictures?
I would imagine that someone who survives the most lethal chemical weapon would at least have live long damage to either body or mental ability, probably both. But that fucker gave interviews left and right in RUSSIA where he was ought to be killed. That shit is just a stunt and he never was poisoned other but his 3700 Bitcoin which he received from the West.
I would have waited for the Ukraine to try something, at the end of the day. And simply come up with a counter for it, then launched a counter-offensive. This is important. The war will be harder, but it will have more legitimacy.
Sure, but you and I have no information what is really going on. He is former FSB/KGB agent, he knows and still has tight connections along trustworthy friendships. Sometimes it is better to attack then to wait and be reacting to your enemies moves. Call me out if I am wrong, but I think it was Clausewitz who said the best way to defeat your enemy is to direct his moves to your will by acting accordingly to do so.
I might be wrong but many on this forum were bitching around, myself included, that Putin was to weak and only reacted to western insults and warmongering. Now he does something any most people are happy about it and he does it with BRAINS, with almost no civilian deaths. If he would give the order to keep russian forces deaths low, then most probably civilians deaths would be a lot higher and I am sure you would not like that either. You strike me as a person who either is highly critical or as someone who loves to complain. I know you are not stupid but the recent posts show you have some misguided frustration. I do not think that Putin is to blame for this current development. I do blame him for other things, which are mostly political based on foreign policy towards the West and towards slavic countries. I think he did not do enough in Ukraine and Belarus or any other former Soviet Countries when he first came to power. He knew the western regimes were meddling against Russia in Georgia and other countries, but there was not really much influence from Russia spread to secure Russia's interest.
