The world is full of bad people then. And everyone with gardening tools is potentially bad.

Is there a rake or hoe in your garden shed?

They didn't want the nuclear weapons and still don't, that's why they gave them up and signed the NPT. What they wanted was sovereignty from Russia but Russia evidently doesn't want that and probably never did, but it did want them to give up those nuclear weapons.

So that's why the Russians are there, to hand over all their weapons to the Ukrainians, but they just can't keep 'em from going off?

What the heck is that even suppose to mean, that only bad people should have weapons? As already noted multiple times just about anything can be a weapon so you are simply asserting that there is just no "living as good people".

Since bad people have weapons and are more than willing to use them, as history dictates. Good people or not, without weapons odds are against you just living, period.

If you say it hapkido then the country part aligns.

Good idea. Next, Putin could rescind orders for troops to systematically rape 14 year old Ukrainian girls, and place a moratorium on poisoning his dissenters.

So, not at all familiar with what the British media has said about our governments, officials and organisations through my adult life that I definitely know of (I'm in my 60s)?

I don't have media, I'm speaking for myself. Unlike you, I oppose systematic rape of 14 year old girls. Maybe it's time for you to stop worshipping Putin.

That is a lie. We would all condemn any country that invaded a sovereign nation and murdered civilians to promote terror.

Your nonsense is disgusting.

Putin is a monster, and you defend him.

The murder of Ukrainians would end if he just took his marauding thugs and went home.

What nonsense. Putin is a monster and a murderer. The West wants him to stop killing innocent civilians in Ukraine.

You should wake up to reality.

Zelinski is a fine leader. These atrocities belong to Putin, Lavrov and Gaetan. War criminals all.

The excuse of five year olds for hitting their sisters, and wife beaters for being ********, it's just the right speed for Putin's admirers. Adults tend to think a little past that.

While this is perhaps your major misunderstanding. There are plenty of differences between humans. Not everyone acts or thinks the same as you do, as I do or as anyone else does. This is why when confronted with people who would not think or act like you, you presume they must be lying or 'crezy'. You just need to get out more and don't presume people must be like you.

If it wouldn't be the conspiracy of the NATO leaders and Zelinski the misery of Ukrainians wouldn't exist and would live peacefully. A guy is sick, he his sick, you should blame what causes his sickness.

So the person initiating the violence and invading holds no responsibility?

How would the current "misery of Ukrainians" even exist if Putin didn't invade?

No what NATO and the Ukrainians are causing is lots of dead Russians. That's a good thing. It's good for Ukrainians to kill Russian invaders. If the Russians don't like it, all they have to do is leave. Ukrainians wouldn't be killing Russians if the Russians weren't in Ukraine.

It is unacceptable that Justin Trudeau sent journalists from Radio Canada to do anti-Russian propaganda tourism with the money from our taxes in Ukraine to make people believe that sending weapons is justified when it is precisely the weapons in this country who are the cause of the misery of the Ukrainians.

Your hero is now threatening to nuke Ukraine due to his current public humiliation. Congratulations.

I am proud of the fact that through my tax dollars, I have the blood of Russian soldiers on my hands. I hope it goes all the way up to my elbows.

Did you see where Germans, Poles and Bulgarians all sent tanks and other armored vehicles to Ukraine so they can use them to kill Russians? If the Russians want to go on living, all they have to do is leave. They may have to kill their officers first but no big loss.

It's the Russian weapons in Ukraine which are causing misery and suffering and death to Ukrainians.

If the people firing them would just **** off back home to Russia, the war would stop.

The Russian weapons are there in the hands of Russians soldiers who have come to Ukraine to kill Ukrainians.

The weapons NATO countries have supplied to Ukraine are for the defence of Ukraine and obviously not for Ukraine to attack Russia because that would be insane and obviously Ukraine had no desire whatever to do that, only to defend itself from yet another Russian attack, which you may have noticed is exactly what Russia is doing right now.

To blame the invaded for the invasion and the weapons that arrived later for being there when they weren't, is like a cop who beats up a citizen then arrests him for resisting arrest when he puts his hands in front of his face. Gaetan missed his calling.
