why can’t they be told leave or we remove your pipeline?
People sure are not getting help from Europe who get the Russian oil, so if they need to stand by then blow the pipeline in part then in whole if need be and get Europe, America involved by force if Russia keeps this up.
PLUS, if the pipeline gets blown, there goes Russia’s income to support their population and military.
Blowing the pipeline IMO if Russia doesn’t leave is happening in this modern age no matter what. Not that hard to do and it will make Russia regret it’s old ways IMO.
(quote from Doctor Zhivago, 1965): "They'd call it counter-revolution. That makes us counter-revolutionaries, too. They SHOOT counter-revolutionaries."
Therein lies the problem. The Russians would find out immediately who all were involved, and their families, and execute every last one of them.
“why cant they be told leave or we remove your pipeline?”
Because Russia believes in “blood for oil”. They’ll remove the opposing population if need be - done it before, will do it again, the third 40,000,000 dead is easy.
“Why cant they be told leave or we remove your pipeline?”
Because Ukraine depends on Russia for most of its economy, a complete severing of relations will literally stop Ukraine’s economy. Also Putin is not above annexing the Eastern half of Ukraine or even all of it if pushed into a corner.
Well, what effect do you think that the largest refinery in Russia blowing up a few days ago will have on the situation?
