Now you both are climbing to the troll level comment, hand by hand Laughing
Ever wondered, why the 85% of the world's community sides with Russia?
Because they see a difference.
That is true, and what the west take advantage a lot of the time... they are not bastards... imagine if the roles were reversed over gas sales to Europe... if it was Europe that was selling gas to freezing cold Russia... would they still be selling gas... how nice would they be...
Threatening nuclear waste is the opposite of this difference.
Another factor is that the waste is there because the west does not know how to deal with nuclear waste from NPPs... I rather suspect Russia could haul it away and reprocess a lot of the material to make it either safe or reusable... which again would be a better international image than lowering to the wests level.
russia has many spies that can verify some of the info.
You have to get info from various independent sources before you put any trust in it, and of course if the enemy knows you have that information it becomes rather time sensitive anyway as they rush to change things to minimise the effect of the security breach.
Lets test the article 5 bluff. There is absolutely nothing to lose for Russia at this point. They already have the ultimate goal to destroy Russia anyways.
I would say there would be plenty of options for protest and complain regarding human rights etc and that they should become more politically active... perhaps even militarily active and put some pressure on the more vocal anti Russian Latvians maybe... Russia does not need Latvia and is better off without it... they already have ports and cities they can grow and develop... getting control of Latvia will just sponge money away from real Russians.
As the west gets more desperate as they find alternative independent international organisations popping up that they have no control over they will get desperate and nuclear war might become an attractive option, but for Russia the future is actually looking brighter than it has looked in quite some time... they are moving away from the corrupt and broken west.
There is plenty for them to lose, you gotta be unhinged to wishing and rooting for the scale of death and destruction you want to see.
The west started this and I don't think they will stop unless they get to see the sort of death and destruction their nazi and orc proxy forces are currently enduring...
Maybe a better appreciation of what war really is is what is needed in the west... whether it is civil war or an inflation war...
Looks like Russia has upped its game a bit. They are having a pretty big cry about the attacks overnight. Its good to see the all the Ukraine NPC's cut down to size with this. They really believed that Crimea attack amounted to something.
Interesting video... amusing really... two things that really stood out... the first... even if his claims were true that civilians were getting killed... he is in charge of their side so it is really up to him to end this war or keep it going... he chooses to continue fighting so any civilian deaths are his fault.
The second was NASAMs... why did he mention their American dollar value?
It sounds like a sales pitch to promote these missiles for sales to other countries...
It fires AMRAAMs... so if they fail then how embarrassing will that be for the west... the primary air to air missile used by all HATO countries fails to shoot down Russian jets... it is a corner stone of their air power...
The same applies to grain.
The flow of grain via EU border was constant for a whole war period.
They have drained the silos to the last seed.
Now, it is the time to find a guilty of famine in Africa, right?
More than that... when they finally negotiated for ships to come and get the grain despite promises most of them ended up going to European ports to offload their grain... it seems the European countries outbid their original customers...
Letting what happened, my friendly armchair field marshall?
Obviously after one accident all Russian aircraft must be fuelled and armed in underground bunkers three stories deep... ignoring that the ones that were actually damaged were in riveted protected areas and not out in the open like these aircraft are...
Protected hangars are not a bad idea but having a hissy fit seeing aircraft on an apron is pathetic... even western airbases have aprons with aircraft lined up... and if HATO do it it must be OK.
