What is happening in the world now is directed in many ways not so much against Russia as against Europe. The main goal is to cut off Europe from the supply of resources from Russia and bring down the European economy. The US is simply eliminating its competitors. They also destroyed the Nord Stream. Countries such as Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic states are puppets of the United States, a wedge between Russia and Germany and Europe as a whole. If Russia and Europe united, such an alliance would surpass the United States in economic and military strength. And the US is preventing this.
They had been pitting Germany against Russia before. And they want to do something similar once again. So that Europe and Russia lie in ruins, and they would also make money on it. And in Europe, many, fooled by propaganda, do not understand this.
Russia has always been part of Europe, albeit a bit isolated, like the North in Game of Thrones. The main enemy of Europe is not Russia, but the United States. Russia and Europe actually have common interests.
