Why Does Russia Always Stop Halfway in Defending Its Interests?

Eduard Limonov is uncharacteristically angry

Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich sent his Defense Minister Shoigu to Bashar Assad to encourage him. Shoigu saluted, went there and said what he was told to say.

Bashar Assad does not need Shoigu. We need to drop one or two divisions of Airborne Forces on Syria to cheer Assad up.

I’m upset at Russia’s latest actions!

The snake Savchenko – symbol of our enemies – was handed back to Kiev on a silver platter.

Our president accepted that the US is a superpower. But he shouldn’t have said that, because this humiliates us.

As for the Donbass, our president respectfully called Poroshenko by his patronymic, Petro Alexeyevich, and supported his initiative to  provide the OSCE with small arms.

Yes, of course I know that everyone says Russia won’t give away the Donbass, and I either don’t believe, or don’t want to believe, that our leaders would agree to Ukraine’s control over the border between Russia and the Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic. But what if I wake up in a cold sweat and find that they did?

Everything about Syria is depressing. From the beginning, we should have depended not on Assad but on the Kurds – there are millions of them, and Kurdish independence would create a semi-state in Turkey.

I would support the Kurds.

The Yanks found a way around the problem. They gave up Turkey for the Kurds, while our scatterbrained are semi-brave or semi-cowards.
