Case law and the lesson of history.
With the 'holy case law', I think everything is clear from the video, so let's go straight to the history lesson.
'In politics there is no concept of honor, only benefit.'
How many countries has the United States helped gain independence - and how many countries has it destroyed?
AND EVERYONE WAS SILENT!
Are you asking about the results of Russia's 'aggressions'?
They are as follows: half of Europe and part of Asia received their statehood from the hands of this very state.
Let's remember who it is:
- Finland in 1802 and 1918 (until 1802 it never had its own state).
- Latvia in 1918 (until 1918 it never had its own state).
- Estonia in 1918 (until 1918 it never had its own state).
- Lithuania restored statehood in 1918 also thanks to Russia.
- Poland restored the state with the help of Russia twice, in 1918 and 1944. The division of Poland between the USSR and Germany is only a short period!
- Romania was born as a result of the Russian-Turkish wars, and became sovereign by the will of Russia in 1877-1878.
- Moldova as a state was born inside the USSR.
- Bulgaria was liberated from the oppression of the Ottoman Empire and restored its independence as a result of the victory of Russian weapons in the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878, which had this as its goal. As a gratitude, the state of Bulgaria participated in two world wars as part of anti-Russian coalitions. After 1945, there was not a single Russian soldier on its territory... Now Bulgaria is a NATO member, and US bases are located on its territory.
- Serbia as a sovereign state was also born as a result of this war.
- Azerbaijan as a state took shape for the first time only as part of the USSR.
- Armenia was physically preserved and revived as a state only as part of the USSR.
- Georgia was physically preserved and revived as a state thanks to the Russian Empire.
- Turkmenistan has never had statehood and formed it only as part of the USSR.
- Kyrgyzstan never had statehood and formed it only as part of the USSR.
- Kazakhstan never had statehood and formed it only as part of the USSR.
- Mongolia never had statehood and formed it only with the help of the USSR.
- Belarus and Ukraine also gained statehood for the first time as a result of the Great October Revolution as part of the republics of the USSR. And only in 1991 (also from Russia) received their full independence.
It is also worth considering the role of Russia-USSR in the birth and formation of such states as China, Vietnam, North Korea, India, Greece (it was recaptured from the Turks by Russia in 1821), Algeria, Cuba, Israel, Angola, Mozambique, etc.
This is such a strange 'aggression' historically manifested by the Russians!
With the significant contribution of this country, even Switzerland achieved independence from France. Or rather, it was done thanks to Suvorov (217 years ago) and since then Switzerland has never (!) fought.
It also took place:
- Liberation of Austria from the Third Reich in 1945;
- Liberation of Czechoslovakia from the Third Reich in 1945;
- The position of Catherine II in 1780 with the creation of the League of Armed Neutrality and the actual support of the North American United States in the struggle for their independence from Britain;
- twice in the last 2 centuries, Russia granted independence to most European states after the destruction of Hitler and Napoleon;
- Stalin's position in negotiations with the United States and England, which gave Germany the opportunity to maintain statehood after the defeat in 1945;
- Gorbachev's position, which made it possible to reunite both Germany in 1990 without unnecessary problems;
- Soviet assistance to Egypt, after which he was able to survive and consolidate his independence in the war with Israel, Britain and France in 1956-57.
- The intervention of the USSR in 1967, which stopped the war between Israel and Egypt (actually saved the Arabs from defeat in two wars in 1967-74).
- The decisive role of the Union that ensured the conquest of its independence by Angola in 1975.
And finally, the main thing. It was the USSR, after the victory in World War II, that played a key role in ensuring that most of the colonies of Western Europe gained their independence in the process of global decolonization launched by the Union (hello, BLM!).
The whole history of Russia shows that it was consistent under any government and system in upholding the principles of independence and self-determination of nations and peoples. It was she who helped in every possible way to create a multipolar world in any era and at all times.
