    if the price you can sell something goes up by 50 percent it’s pretty hard to make less money

    But you can't buy anything for less than a 100% markup

    Are there Nazis in Ukraine? Yes
    Is that number substantial? Meh, probably not outside of a few groups.
    Did Russia care before 4 months ago? Not really

    At this point, Russia basically just uses Nazis as a catch all term for people who are “unfriendly” to Russia.

    Meanwhile, it was the Soviet Union who made a pact with Nazi Germany. Not the rest of western Europe. Not the US. Not the rest of Eastern Europe.

    Shhhh...

    facts are not important. Just because they divided up Poland with Germany in 1939 doesn't matter.

    But, the rest of Europe DID give them all of Czechoslovakia with a "Please don't invade us..." plea.

    Stalin's faith in Hitler will always be a mystery. For a guy who didn't trust anyone, he couldn't fathom that Hitler would do him wrong.

    Hard to say what that could mean.

    For better or worse, Russia has always been closer to some level of medieval serfdom than a "modern" nation. I don't know what the correct answer would have been after WW2, they very well may have voted themselves into the same situation they had before, based on familiarity.

    On Crimea, Donbas, or Russia itself?

    The Donbas is rubble. It's very bad there.

    Basically this is their last option.

    European countries didn’t give them shit in July monetary wise and Americans are funding the whole war effort now.

    We’ve about exhausted our weapon systems to give them that don’t take in-depth training to operate, and the ground is about to be frozen in the winter allowing Russian tanks and equipment more freedom to move around the country and harder to ambush.
