With an annual GDP of $ 1,47 trillion, Russia is not even among the ten largest economies in the world and should not have such influence. Yet Russia is considered one of the world's geopolitical troublemakers seeking to destabilize the West's efforts to shape and maintain the current US-led global order. Revisionism under Putin is an impending threat to global security. All over the world, Russia interferes in the affairs of countries, fomenting conflicts, escalating tensions and creating "frozen conflicts" forever. As part of her intimidation tactics, she operates in secrecy, using local players or mercenaries to keep target countries vulnerable to instability and violence.

- suggested by Stephen Merritt.

So, the US spies on the leaders of the allied states, as well as its own citizens, trampling on the Fourth Amendment, and the special services lie to Congress with impunity about this. But they want sanctions only against Russia. Seems like a recipe for endless conflict

- says George.

We need to cut off the Russian Internet or what else they use there [...]

- suggested DK.
