    would have turned out fine if it didn't also invade like 5 other countries at the same time.

    The best things that you can buy are manufactured in Germany.

    Who is buying Russian products besides their produce and their natural resources?!

    The answer is no one because Russian products are crap.
    Why would they, though? There's noone interested in risking anything with Russia over the Ukraine. It was in a poor state when the Maidan happened, and its even worse now, and Russia has little to do with that. Ukraine was intereesting as long as they held the ground around one of Russias biggest naval bases, but now, it's just a liability. Noone will risk anything for them. Look at what happened recently, in the Kerchow (spelling...?) strait. How the international community cried out in anger? How Kiew was shaking its fists, speaking of provocation, casus beli, and what happened? Nothing. Because noone outside of the Ukraine gives a shit. And the people in control there give no shits, either. They want to get rich, and then they'll leave the country in an even worse state.

    No. Russia simply cannot be invaded, just like the US and China. The winter will fuck you over, and the country is to big to be held. If Germany had declared war on noone else the still would have failed miserably.

    Russia must be having a inferiority complex with the Muricas fucking up the world so royally in these past decades. No wonder they feel the need to act up to compensate. These hostile superpowers are going to drive us extinct sooner or later.

    Their claim to Ukraine is not completely illegitimate tbh but it's incomprehensible that they would pursue it and create conflict when the world already is just about ready to implode on itself.

    Sadly it's no coincidence this is happening at a time of year when those things are impossible to sanction >.>

    Actually Russia's tanks are (in general) inferior.

    The USSR had two main battle tanks, the Ukrainian produced T-64 (from which the T-80 and T-84 were derived) which was arguably one of if not the best tanks on the planet in its day, and the Russian produced T-72 which was a cheaper less capable but more mass producible complimentary design (which due to being lower tech was also sold to other countries).

    Essentially, Ukraine has all the good Soviet tanks some of which have been further modernized and Russia only has the cheap ones they sold the middle east plus the T-90 and Armata.

    Which was ironic considering that was exactly how they defeated France, Czechoslovakia, etc :P

    At least they announced it through the proper channels. If they did it the USA way they would install a dictator that is loyal to US interests while robbing the natives.

    Dude... Putin literally sent Russian military to remove his puppet oligarch leader and is currently protecting him from being extradited back, due to treason charges. Try again...

    I'd rather have Ukraine survive. I don't feel like living near Mother Russia for half a year.
