"BlackRock's asset realisation team"
I'm sure you're backing these conspiracy claims with good references in your next post.
"Wagner's coup was defeated in <24hrs"
By negotiation, not by force. Wagner apparently had 2 casualties wherease the feeble army opposition lost several aircraft and many times more personnel.
"But Russia's using around 10-15% of it's military to demonstrate the impotence of the NATO collective"
For the last month or so Russia has lost ground to the inferior NATO collective and Ukrainian forces.
If you think that's the whole force of NATO, you are ludicrously mistaken.
"Zelensky, meanwhile still can't find a decent suit"
I see you're grasping at straws. Is attacking Zelensky's attire the daily missive you've given?
"'Arsenals of Democracy'
Sounds almost like the Soviet's very own "Weapons of Peace".
"It's still entirely at the mercy of the West though and will never be independent again"
Ukraine does need external help since Russia is much bigger and with lots more weapons. They truly are at the mercy of West to provide materiel. They are still independent, even though Russia has tried to make them a vassal state for more than a decade now. Russia likes to have their puppets working for them, be it in Abkhazia, Transnistria, South Ossetia, or Luhansk and elsewhere.
"The mighty NATO, defeated by convicts with shovels."
That's something Skabeyeva might say in her show.
Russia has had problems enlisting people so convicts were the lowest hanging fruit. FWIW, those convicts were cannon fodder and most of them dead already. Yet Ukraine is advancing.
"If only Russia had de-industrialised like the West has, it wouldn't have been able to produce as many shovels"
Russia was supposed to have over 2,000 T-14 Armata tanks before the war. They only have a handful because all money was embezzled by Putin's cronies.
"Yes, well, there was the small matter of the civil war"
Again with the Russian propaganda viewpoint. It wasn't a civil war - hybrid war with Russia provided money, weapons and personnel - including Wagner mercenaries to fight war the separatists.
"and ethnic cleansing that started in 2014."
In 2014 Russia invaded Crimea and among other things jailed Ukrainians who didn't kowtow to the newly installed puppet regime.
Russia then started their persecution of Tatars, the titular people of Crimea.
"Again, we destroyed Yugoslavia"
You are telling revisionist garbage. Yugoslavia dissolved because Slovenians, Croatians and others wanted indepence, and Yugoslavia was already broken up when NATO came there.
"so why shouldn't Russia to the same to preven ethnic cleansing in Ukraine?"
There isn't ethnic cleansing going on by Ukraine, no matter how many times you write it.
