US betrayed agreement of stopping NATO expansion. More than 25 years gone, there is no USSR, but NATO still exists and expanded up to Russian borders. Can you believe if Russian armed forces were stating in Mexica or near California? No, but US do it. So there is no trust to US. And you are telling here about Russian aggression, while Russia is in its borders and NATO now is right on Russian borders.
All countries are different and US totalitarian way to spread “democracy” is the old communist way to spread communism. US is not a our enemy, remember that, we hope you’ll understand the that progress is not looking back as US do, but looking forward for peace and humanity like Russia do. US is not an enemy for Russia any more, Soviet union is no existing for more than 25 years and US still fights with it. US is in the past, it became soviet union with one party in the form of republicans and democrats. Its bad sign, US became that type of state it was afraid most of all.
West stuck in the USSR-epoch, it took place of Soviet Union, change word «democracy» to «communism» in western countries and Europe and you’ll get those politics and concepts, that there were in USSR sometimes. Russia is in the future and US stuck in the past.
If you call an aggression Crimean referendum — Crimean people used their own right to decide how to live after an armed nazi coup in Kiev, which was made by a small part of Ukrainian people, whose express of will was not made from the name of all 40 millions of ukrainians. So why you prohibit expressing of will of Crimeans? Crimean people are much more patriotic than continental russians, Crimea before 1990 year was in administrative subordination on Ukraine, but not territorial, so it was kind of mistake made by crime-Eltzyn and Gorbachev, it shouldn’t be given to ex-republics while USSR-collapse.
