On what grounds do you call the Ukrainian (or is it just Crimean) government of 2014 and before a nazi government?

Absolutely they can be sanctioned – they already were since the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014. And now even more.

I think the only question is: will it help?

Revenge action from the massacres like this was bound to happen. Too bad it removes a lot (though not all since scale still matters) of the moral high ground Ukraine could have stood on before.

If there is no open discussions, ane everybody just attributes to oppenents as “liars”, that actually means, that parties are not interested in listening to others, and find some kind of truth.

Yes, but this assumes that all parties are discussing in good faith. That there’s at least an official respect for truth. I find it very difficult to find such a sentiment from Kreml’s attitudes and behaviour.

Perhaps wikipedia should be fined until they delete it.

That sounds good in theory, but what is the standard of checking the proofs? None of the parties are exactly impartial. Also since Russia uses lying as a primary political tool, how can we trust anything they say?

It’s a pretty big mistake to take anything Kreml says at face value. At least since Putin took power, lying has been their number one tool. It’s prudent to demand actual, real, irrefutable proof on everything they say before believing it.

I would really have to try hard to find a community that would admire Hitler but apparently admiring Stalin, another mass murder seems to be perfectly fine!

One important difference is that Hitler lost the war, and Stalin won the war. Hence Germany was strongly compelled to remorse both internally and externally, whereas Soviet Union (and now Russia) has been proud about most things it did, and did little or no penitence.

In retrospect and in the slightly longer run, losing to allied countries in WW2 was a superb move. That probably doesn’t apply generally, since countries usually don’t survive a total defeat in a war.

If you want, I can give you a link towards those alleged atrocities made by socialists.

Here’s some input for that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_killings_under_communist_regimes – I’d be interested in knowing how these can be countered.

Yeah the real fascists are those who call people fascists. I think I’ve heard this in r/conservative

Chop garlic, onion. Saute in olive oil, throw in a can of crushed tomatoes. Throw in one or several of: black beans, kidney beans, tuna fish, tofu cubes, whatever. Season with peppers, salt, chili, herbs as you like. Takes about 5-10 minutes.

Probably pasta works best in combination, but quinoa and others may too.

Do you think it would be better if they had prepared for it? Plus also: it’s not only the US who is doing this.

Peaceful countries usually are not prepared for war. That’s not a reason to not wage one when shit hits the fan.

I don’t think this was created by Biden admin, more like Clinton, Madeleine Albright and the Bushes. Granted, he’s not exactly doing his best to defuse any of those peoples’ bad decisions (except for Afghanistan, although that was planned by Trump administration)

Yes, but waste not. Many government programs utterly fail in bringing any help for the people who need it. Some even outright prevent help.

Russia apparently threatens the west that they're gonna start killing their own people as a retaliation for west's actions.
