Do you guys know anything about Ukraine and Russia. Its like US citizens woke up in 2022 and want to tell everyone they know everything about a nothing country they didn't give two turtle turds about at christmas. The regions occupied by Russia were given to Ukraine for administration during the soviet era. The are not just the most russian speaking area, the are also the manufacturing area because they were Russian before this. In fact Ukraine will likely be bulkanized by Poland and Romania as well. If they hadn't been murdering 14,000 people in their civil war the USA propped up for the last 8 years, none of this would be happening. Minsk 2 was signed by all parties including the USA, but Ukraine never followed through.
Go do a little more digging, You guys are missing about 98% of the context of everything about this 'invasion'.
