I’m glad we cleared this up.
Just so we understand where everyone stands.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin may start World War III without more US assistance — bluntly comparing his adversary to “a second Hitler.”
Zelensky gave the ominous warning in an interview with “60 Minutes” in which he said that his nation was “fighting for real with a nuclear state that threatens to destroy the world.”
If that’s what’s at stake, then maybe just give them the Donbass? I mean – right?
“The whole world has to decide whether we want to stop Putin, or whether we want to start the beginning of a world war,” Zelensky told CBS News’ anchor Scott Pelley.
“We can’t change Putin. Russian society has lost the respect of the world. They elected him and re-elected him — and raised a second Hitler,” Zelensky said, directly comparing Putin to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
“We cannot go back in time. But we can stop it here.”
He claimed that if Putin is successful in his invasion of Ukraine, the Russian president will invade other countries as well in order to expand his empire — much like Hitler did in the years leading up to World War II.
Oh come on.
These people just say things that are retarded. These are things that no serious person believes are true. But we live in a democracy, so they can just pander to morons.
Zelensky described Putin as a “person who has made his way with such bloody actions, with everything he has said cannot be trusted.
“There is no trust in such a person because he has not been a human being for a long time.”
Speaking of the need for more aid, the Ukrainian president said: “We’re defending the values of the whole world. And these are Ukrainian people who are paying the highest price.
“We are truly fighting for our freedom, we are dying,” he continued. “We are not fiction, we are not a book. We are fighting with a nuclear state that threatens to destroy the world.
“If Ukraine falls, what will happen in 10 years? Just think about it. If [the Russians] reach Poland, what’s next? A Third World War?”
You don’t seem to be dead, bro.
And I’m not sure who “we” is.
You’re not even Ukrainian, bro.
Here’s the full interview:
Somehow, this is getting more cartoonish still.
You know that the US-backed Russian opposition party – run by Alexi Navalny, that fraudster neo-Nazi democracy activist who poisoned himself or whatever – had to denounce the Ukraine because they are advocating for killing all Russians. It’s hilarious because the Navalny people supported the Ukraine, and in theory, are the only people through which the Ukraine could “win the war.”
To clarify that point: the only path to a “victory” is a collapse of the Putin government, and the Navalny people are the only way that could work. If the Putin government were to collapse now, you’d have a bunch of lunatics seize power who would declare total war and send tens of millions of men marching into Europe, and presumably also nuke major capitals.
That’s the craziest thing about this whole situation: Putin is the moderate Russian.
