how the hell did this all start? i’m seriously worried :/
Ukraine had a riot against their government and I guess Putin thought that it’d be the best tactic to invade Ukraine and occupy it. My mom and I are watching TV non-stop, and since Lithuania is kind of close to Ukraine, we’re not getting any of that propaganda bullshit that other countries get.
We might get the same treatment, so our government is trying their best not to keep a lot of stuff from us…
Basically, Putin wants to take Crimea from Ukraine and make it a part of Russia (and then do the same with the rest of Ukraine, let’s be real), except that people are fighting back, so he said that if they don’t stop, the Russian army will shoot and make things violent. Which is absolutely ridiculous cause.. of course people are fighting back dude, you’re invading their country!!!!!! But he twisted it in a way where HE is the victim and has to fight back because Ukrainians are attacking.
There was a thing on TV where Ukrainians living in Lithuania were explaining the situation and saying that they don’t want Russia in their home country, and there are STILL PEOPLE on this site saying “ukrainians asked russia to come”
This is an invasion, Russia is doing the same trick AGAIN, and most likely if Ukraine becomes part of Russia, Russia will try spreading even more.
Putin agreed to talk only with the leaders of Germany. Obama spent 90 minutes talking to Putin, but Putin flat out refused to stop. Europe is trying to stay low and see how this plays out. It can get pretty bad.
Another thing, Poland initiated a meeting with NATO to try and protect a few Baltic and Scandinavian countries, since we’re the closest to Russia, but it might become a real problem to the Baltics. We’re kind of the weak countries of Europe, so we’re not exactly worth saving.
I’m afraid of speculating what’s going to happen, but I’ll keep updating if I hear new information.
Allow me to help shed some light on this situation, on why Russia wants just about all of Ukraine. And why “Ukraine asked Russia for help” is a buncha BS. As four-fipped-his-clothes-off has said, Russia has used this tactice before to occupy other countries and to stomp out things they don’t agree with. Because that’s just what Russia does LGBT issues aside.
Russia wants Ukraine for 3 reasons trade route through the Black Sea into the Middle East (mostly Syria) which is Russia’s buddy, the pipelines that go straight through Kiev, and the fact that Ukraine is the only flat country/easy way into Russia.
Well hey howdy hey look who leads right to the Black Sea? That River right through the heart of Kiev.
Oh hey look where that MAJOR ass pipeline goes through. And look at where the Russians are occupying from. Hmmmmmmm, I think I’m starting to see a trend.
Oh. And here we see again. Flattest part of Ukraine, is Kiev. And Belarus is realitively flat compared to the countries around it. Save for Poland which Russia would have to be crazy to touch.
Now I don’t think most people understand the situation in Kiev and why it exploded the way that it did. Most sites will tell you it’s because people got upset over their people going missing/being killed/being tortured after new anti-protest laws were made. But Ukraine was already against Russian involvement because they wanted to return to their old democracy that their (now former) president had strayed from. Which, Ukraine has been in much financial trouble (as is the rest of the world) and Russia said hey we’ll bail you out for 5 billion (I think it was multiple places say differently) And that’s when shit got /dicey/ that’s when the Ukrainian people revolted. Because if you look it’s not just college aged kids in these photos it’s people of /all/ ages joining this fight.
That alone speaks volumes for how Russia was already unwelcome in this country. And why Ukraine wouldn’t suddenly go /save us mother Russia/. Russia is using bullshit propoganda to hide behind their actual motives. Or they were. When Russia said they wanted to invade Obama told him no there will be consequences. And ahahah U.S wasn’t going to do shit to start with. Because guess who Russia is allied with? CHINA. And China pretty much owns the U.S since all of our debt, is through China. And China incase people haven’t noticed has the most power in the world right now.
After the 80’s the power of the U.S sharply declined, so it’s not just Obama. It’s a string of events that led to U.S becoming that angry 5 year old on the playground no one takes seriously. So all of the outerlying countries around Ukraine, know U.S isn’t going to step in. No matter how much they scream for help.
If Europe does not help these people, no one will.
Now tell me again this isn’t almost fucking identical to the Poland invasion of 1939.
Which happened one week after Germany signed a pact with Russia. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. I’m just saying, don’t believe everything you hear. Which is what four-ripped-his-clothes off has been saying. Living in Lithuania she knows, she’s not stupid. So when someone says this is bad, should probably believe them.
This should be a HUGE concern. Now will it turn into WW3? I don’t know, will Europe help? I don’t know. With Russia’s recent ultimatum. All I’m saying is keep your eye on this.
Because we are literally watching one of the biggest events in current time unfolding. No doubt this will make it’s way into the history books.
^THIS THIS THIS THIS

also, one thing about China, even though it’s an ally to Russia, China wants to stay low and said that Putin should not get involved in Ukraine’s problems. I don’t know, maybe it will change, maybe it will not.
