Was I personal? Please allow me to explain, not much personal and it is very much related to the conflict in Ukraine.
There is diaspora of Russian emigrants, who leave the motherland because of some reason and soon enough starts to dream about the Russian way of life. Humanly taking nothing wrong with that and I do get it: own culture, own relatives, right? Problem begins when they actively start to import this world into country of residence. I mean, all this nonsense about divine right of Russians to conquer and kill neighbours in order to save them. From what? Nobody knows the answer except Orthodox Curch, rest of them just believe it. You know, staff like Russia being the Third Rome and spreading the most righteous form of religion in the name of God, sacrifying their own blood for this noble cause (more deaths, more sacrifices, more points earned to enter the paradise or smth), thus being in position to commit any crime without fear making any sins. Raping woman as a twisted form of worshipping a God, to put it in short form.
We witness such kind of behavoiur in Estonia and this is rather confusing. In the end, St. Petersburg is 300 km in East, all those values are applied there in everyday life and why should anyone torture himself of being undervalued and not-appreciated in foreign country? Somehow they still stay here and feel personally hurted whan someone reminds them this simple fact. Interestingly enough, this fever tends to cool down closer one gets to the Russian border. The reason? People living close to the border do have more possibilities to witness this dreamland himself and perhaps the actual life there is much worse than imaginary one?
What is interesting is they (Russian emigrants) fail to see this kind of suicidal behaviour to be the most dangerous for themselves. First, they can loose the right of residence (https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/ne...-ukrainians-becomes-most-hated-tourist-in-eu/
) and secondly, they will be killed among first if Russian World happens to arrive in their country somehow. Reason for this- russians as emigrants are still considered to be state owned slaves, who managed to escape somehow under the rightful ownership. So from my point of view I try actually to help blackjack, believe me or not. If he likes to stay in US, he must learn to respect local laws or he might loose this privilege just like that.
The same mindset is probably the reason why Ukrainian civilians were, are and will be hurted so much. They must be reminded who is the boss nation here and there is no escape from Russian ownership even if Ukrainians do not think so. Similarily are Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Finns to be seen as "kholops" (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/kholop
) at loose and how much I try to fake it- I take it as personal.
bisbis approach was bit more personal though from my side, I admit that. Provoking people helps sometimes to open their motives better and done with that. After collapse of USSR Russia has attacked so many of friendly countries from Commonwealth of Independent States (Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus etc) and left others without defense (Armenia). Absolutely suicidal behavour from Russia, I cannot imagine what their boss is thinking. Even if NATO is as bad as bisbis says, allying with Russia is much more suicidal. I respect bisbis opinion and his right to say it out, but again- dangerous for himself and Türkyie according to my personal subjective opinion.
NATO article 5 has interesting nuance- it does not oblige any country to help any country in case of problems. So some credibility is needed in order to count on that and despite how much I like to see patriots of Türkyie witnessing he expansion of their domains, it comes with a price. I see Erdogan pushing right buttons in order to unify the nation, I understand the disappointment from unsuccesful EU accession process, I personally tend to see US as a bit arrogant supernation forcing shortsightedly christian values upon islamic countries and so forth. It is not perfect world, I know. Is the new one better?
