      We are waging a war against the country whose size is 28 times larger than ours, whose population is 4 times larger than ours, whose military capabilities are many times greater than ours. We have been at war not for 8 months, but for 8 years and 8 months.

      I paraphrased his statement in the title, but that’s the meaning. Apparently he considers those in eastern Ukraine Russians, not Ukrainians.

      Seems to me that what the Ukraine military really wants is genocide of ethnic Russians.  And this is stoked and nurtured by the US and the US’ appendages.

      Much less for 8 years, 8 months. 🙄

        Not by a looooong shot.  And Zelensky is shelling civilians, while Russia seems to be sticking to the Ukrainian military and only just now has gone after infrastructure, while still avoiding civilians. IMO, if Putin wanted to attack that way, the war would have been over long ago.  Also it seems much of what has been sent to Ukraine has gone into the black market.  Which, to me, is good for the civilians being shelled, but bad for the countries where the weapons and such end up.  So I call bullshit worthy of the US.
