Things didn’t go well for Russia while they were in Afghanistan.
Putin is now being embarrassed by civilians in the Ukraine. He is meeting a greater force than he anticipated. He has underestimated the resilience of Ukrainians. Putin thought taking back the Ukraine was going to be easy with his “PEACEKEEPING FORCE”. It is not a peacekeeping force……..that was Putin bullshit. You have to question the will of Russian soldiers to really fight Ukrainians; after all Putin said that Russian and Ukrainians are one people. It that were really true……Russian soldiers would defy even Putin. Putin can not leave the Ukraine (if he ever does) without fully achieving his goal ……….or HE faces total embarrassment (globally). This is not a rap against the Russian people, even the soldiers……….Putin lies to his own people as much as, if not more than he lies to the world. That would include CHINA!
