I can’t say that I blame them. All the west has done is betray them in the name of jihad everywhere. Our involvement there was the worst thing we’ve ever done. Russia at least will stick by them more than we have. I can only imagine that in their eyes we are the greater source of pain at the moment.
“Russia at least will stick by them more than we have.”
Only to serve Russian interests.
With that said, Yeltsin was a weak drunk who was “managing” a destroyed post Soviet economy and a devastated Ruble and was in really no position to provide any assistance to Serbia in 1999. Putin, OTH, won’t fold like Yeltsin did, if another confrontation were to arise over Kosovo it will turn out more like the Georgia incident.
