    Unfortunately, one cannot expect an adequate reaction to what happened from jingoistic fumes. Nothing. In a couple of months, the joyful frenzy will subside and, looking around with a sober look, many will quietly go sick from what is happening with the country and in the country. And in a year it will be very, very fun for everyone: the 90s, which they used to scare here, will seem like a heavenly time ...

      8 years gone. The price will be high, mainly in terms of the economy.
      But what are the alternatives? To do nothing?

    Little will announce the start of a military operation. Putin must admit his mistakes. This would not have happened if Putin had not chickened out in 2014-15. In 2014-15 Putin would have been a liberator in Ukraine, and now, after seven years of fascist propaganda, Russia will be the aggressor. You can't stop now. Zelensky and his team should be tried for fascism, for the murder of civilians. No negotiations with him. There is Yanukovych, Azarov or Kozak to put at the head of Ukraine, before restoring order.

    The threat of “development” of Ukraine by NATO and the calls of the Ukronazis to create nuclear weapons are the two main reasons for the outbreak of war with Ukraine.
    After the end of the showdown with Ukraine and negotiations with the “West”, which most likely will not lead to an agreement on non-expansion of NATO, non-deployment of strike assets and return of NATO infrastructure to the position of 1997, the problem of further actions of the Russian Federation will arise - a preventive strike against the deployed after 1997 NATO infrastructure in Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia by non-nuclear means, or agree to the actual state of affairs under the Indispensable Condition for the Demilitarization of the Baltic states.

    The US has imposed sanctions against...the EU. It is the EU that will be covered by such a wave that there is a high probability of serious changes in the political landscape. The next elections are in France.

    The United States has been living at the expense of the whole world for all the past decades, and especially for the last 5 years. They built up debt by printing their own candy wrappers, servicing external debt with printed candy wrappers. Last year, they approached the line where it became difficult to continue living at the expense of another world, there were no more countries that were not plundered and squeezed out like a rag. And so they decided that it was time to feed themselves at the expense of their allies. A kind of cannibalism. By changing the energy supplier of Europe, instead of Russia (cheap, stable and good) to its own LNG (expensive, competition with Asia, dirty and unstable), imposing on them the need to sharply increase defense spending, the United States will suck the juices of Europe while it dries and falls apart .

    For Russia, this is not so bad. Europe must realize who the US really is for them. This realization will come only through breaking. Heavy break. But not for long. Europeans are not ready for breaking. They will sweep away all those who gave them this new order. Politicians of a new format and beliefs will come. For this to happen as quickly as possible, Russia needs to communicate with European societies. Propaganda against the US in European languages ​​is very important now, perhaps the most important in the coming months.
