    Wasn't Ukraine joining the EU a red line for Vlad because EU membership = NATO membership?

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world...o-russia-putin

    I think Ukraine being in NATO is a big fat nyet - I think Crimea strategically is an even bigger nyet if it were to become a NATO territory.

    Also didn't this all happen right after Russia said nyet to the first Syrian invasion attempt? I remember it going like this:

    Us - OK, we've done Iraq now, let's do Syria!
    Vlad - erm - I'm gonna have to say nyet to that one guys sorry (I like my gas monopoly to Europe thanks you very much)
    *Regime change in Ukraine* (passenger plane shot down)
    Vlad - erm.... OK, well I'm having Crimea - you're not check mating me that easily
    *Annexes Crimea, supports East Ukraine rebels*

    That's how I saw it unfold, although I am biased on the side of fake news and a useful idiot so I happy to have some gaps filled in.

    Do please avoid personal attacks as you aren't equipped for a battle of wits.

    The EU was creating stronger economic & political bonds with Ukraine, Russia publicly made it clear that they were very unhappy about this as Crimea is part of the mouth of the Black sea where the Russian fleet sits. A number of military experts explained this at length on the news.

    The EU & Ukraine continued to get closer together and probably the most dangerous western world leader reacted. Of course the EU did f. all and the poor bastards in the Crimea & Ukraine paid for the EU's stupidity.
    You show that you have absolutely no knowledge about this subject except what your Kremlin masters tell you. I happen to know a lot about this subject and you're just talking BS

    Well that much is obvious.
    It's impossible to fill in the gaps though, as they exist between your ears.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Apparently there's another Assad gas attack in the prepping... US have threatened to hit Russian assets in retaliation if/when it does happen if they 'get in the way'. Very little about Idlib in the news and a lot happening there right now...

    Ah the Corbyn gambit - I was there but I didn't take part!

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    "Tourists" that come to the uk for 2 days and when they get to their destination Salisbury cathedral they go back because of the cold weather to Moscow where it is even colder
    We've seen the Russian tourists before in Eastern Ukraine where they came armed with tanks on their holidays

    For Trotskyist Corbyn fully believable
