it is said in Russian media (Pravda) this week that : "The Russian president knows that a long conflict in Ukraine will cost the West a lot. Western countries may eventually stop supporting Ukraine, and Zelensky will be over with. The West will not see a revolution in Russia. It will fail to bring another liberal to power, who would cause the Russian Federation to collapse. Globalists will not win here."

Like all people, Russia, other countries care about themselves. It is not countries but leaders seeking our personal grandeur that seek to kill people in other countries. The Russia and Ukraine experience shows this and shows that a leader's absolute control over the media that is destructive its society, to other societies and to the world.
