Very informative info from the Ukrainian guest. Please bring him in more often. Henry Kissinger was wrong about Vietnam, and he's wrong about Ukraine. Ukraine will be one nation, indivisible. Victory to Ukraine

Moscow's war record :-
1856 defeated by Britain and France
1905 defeated by Japan
1917 defeated by Germany
1920 defeated by Poland, Finland, Estonia and all Baltic states
1939 defeated by Finland
1969 defeated by China
1989 defeated by Afghanistan
1989 defeated in the Cold War.
1996 defeated by Chechnya
2022 defeated by Ukraine
In WW2 it was Stalin's NKVD that won the war : officers who wouldn't advance were shot or sent to the Gulags. Millions went to the Gulags, including Solzhenitsyn
Moscow's only victories come from invading smaller countries :-
a) Hungary 1956
b) Czechoslovakia 1968
c) Moldova 1992
d) Georgia 2008

Wrong as usual. Calling the Crimean War a “victory” is a massive stretch; the “victors” gained nothing out of it.

Russia reconquered almost everything it had lost within five years of the Treaty of Brets Litovsk.

All of which would proceed to be smashed by the Soviets within the next twenty years.

Claiming China “won” in 1969 is likewise wrong, the result of the 1969 skirmishes was a stalemate and the issue with resolved via diplomacy.

Considering the Afghan puppet state they set up far outlasted the one we created, it’s as much a defeat as our own war in Afghanistan was.

Considering they proceeded to force Chechnya back under their control calling it a “defeat” is feeble.

Gee bud, they sure curbstomped your German “liberators” six ways to Sunday though during World War Two 😂
