The Ukrainians are playing this smart. Shining light on the rats is the best thing to do, so nobody is taken in by Russian propaganda when they march into Ukraine to commit slaughter.
Many people are deliberately believing Putin despite all the evidence that he’s a world class liar.
I think the Ukrainians are playing it dumb. They should be already blowing crap up in Russia. They should be talking to the Turks to liven things up there.
By doing nothing they allow Putin an easy victory.
or maybe they don’t really want to bleed to get their freedom? Maybe they want U.S. to.....in which case I tell em to go to hell.
