You don’t understand, George, that Ukraine is not even a state. What is Ukraine? Part of its territories is Eastern Europe, but the greater part is a gift from us.

    Of course there are many “former” Communists involved with the Ukraine whom are part of the “opposition”, why else would one of them end up defecting so quickly?

    Also, there are reports of the Kremlin promoting pro-invasion rallies:

    Strange, you don’t see that many anti-war Leftists protesting Russia’s war with the Ukraine, rather you see many of the same Leftists in the “peace” groups here at home defend Russia since neo-Communist ilk like the Workers’ World Party, and the Communist Party USA both defend Russia.
