but really it's neither here nor there in relation to Ukraine's sovereignty.
It's not really about corruption, but more about the fact that we supported another regime change in an independent country (talking about sovereignty), and promising its population a better life (like eventually joining the EU and NATO) which obviously we cannot provide. So, we used and reused the argument of corruption to justify our meddling (and the ousting of the previous government), but when we look at the situation as it is now, we can see that we failed, big time.
Hide sources in what way? By citing them?
Yes, by citing them, telling me you found them on Google, which is not a source per se, as we both agreed.
I don't much like the phrase 'LOL' but it really does fit here.
You're right, you shouldn't use it.
Unless you still pretend that any source that has been put online and indexed by a search engine is not infact reliable.
This shows how naive you can be. A search engine's role is not to index "reliable" contents, but just ANY contents, billions of them.
Russian sources are indexed on Google too, sources you wouldn't find "reliable" for sure.
So, for the umpteenth time, in what way does Russia CURRENTLY (not 40 years ago) threaten Poland?
In other words, what would Russia benefit from invading Poland?
A brutal and bloody invasion 'close ties'?
Yes, close ties. Most people in Eastern Ukraine (which covers a vast area) have Russian as their primary langage, and/or are of Russian descent, and/or are married to Russians, and/or work with Russians, etc. If you can't understand that the country isn't homogeneous as Poland is, and that its relations with Russia (historically, economically, culturally, etc.) are strong, then you can't understand the situation in Ukraine.
I told you, it's not just another cowboy story. The good guy on one side VS the bad guy on the other side.
And talking about being brutal, ask the populations of Odessa or Donetsk what they think of the government forces.
What Poland gets from this relationship, other than cheaper vodka, and cheap labor, is difficult to understand.
Indeed. The same can be said, unfortunately, about the relationships between Poland and Western Europe. There is no such thing as "friendly states".
