But the way for the Russian people to truly prosper is to forget these delusional nationalistic dr ...

My first response failed to appreciate that, in a sense, Russians have some reason to believe their very existence is threatened. Ukraine was actually the BIRTHPLACE of the Russian culture. Only LATER did cultural dufferences between Ukrainians and Russians emerge. NATO should keep this in mind. And, to this day, the more educated "Ukrainians" in central and eastern Ukraine use Russian as daily language. There is a striking similarity in historica-culturall relationships involving Kosovo-Serbia and Ukraine-Russia. This partly explains the Russian fuss about Kosovo.
What's on your mind...

Never received an alert of your response my friend. On the surface, and for one who believes in the goodness of the West, your statement makes sense. When one takes more than a cursory look, into the problems faced by Russia, the picture changes.
Russia, rightly or wrongly, encompasses huge untapped resources. That wealth may, if used properly, render Russia an economic superpower in the not so distant future. Russia under Putin, gathered all its assets and looked to the West for acceptance as an equal player...... in the capitalist game that spans the globe. All those efforts were rejected by the powers that be, so she gathered all her toys and looked to the East for trade partners. So Russia cannot be blamed for the situation that arose out of that.
In the hope that an enlightened administration may appear in the US, Russia did not severe all its ties to the West, and that is becoming a millstone round Russia's neck. The sanctions have caused some suffering to the Russians, but even more so the the Europeans. The last thing the US hegemon wanted to see, was the growing cooperation and interdependence between Europe and Russia. Hence the efforts in Ukraine. First the failed Orange revolution and then the coup against Yanukovych.
Ukraine was the bread-basket of the USSR. So by controlling Ukraine the West hoped to be able to control the supply of bread to the Russians, and the transfer of gas to the Europeans.... an evil ploy that backfired. Russia now is left with no other option, but to prepare for war with the US. It is sad.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

The only future that awaits Putin and Russia is starvation , chaos and lawlessness.
