      if we are bringing other small and unrelated conflicts, perhaps this might give an idea of why russia would be hesitant to let NATO/US do whatever they please around them.

      i suggest you look up the cia involvement i mentioned for more details on your original question though.

        Unrelated? We are specifically discussing Russia and how they, according to you, went to war “much later” and only after it was clear that “the West was against Russia”. While both were obviously not the case.

        Calling those small… whatever you want.

          with the west. bad way to turn smaller conflicts into a big nasty war with nuclear threats going around. meddling and escalating and provoking is never the answer to any of that.

          it does seem like its ending with russia taking a big bite of ukraine over though, all that hamfisted destruction for their enemies to accomplish almost nothing
