UPD: 04/18/2014 Russia is a wasteland, and the demographic problems there are enormous. For them, the ideal option is simply to destroy Ukraine, a political scientist
Despite the presence of the largest territory in the world, Russia is still at a low level of development. According to the broadcast channel "BTB" said political analyst Alexander Paliy.
“And some of our figures of the famous party are playing along with it. After all, they want to continue to manage those oppressed people and resources. For Russia, the ideal option is simply to destroy Ukraine, and even better, the whole world. Why it is needed is unknown. This, you know, the Mongol-Tatars had such a slogan: "To the last sea!" And the Russians took this ideology. There is no rational explanation for this - it is in psychology. That is, these gains do not give the development of Russia. Look at modern Russia. This is the largest territory in the world, and you understand what level of development there is, ”said Paly.
“Russians cannot dispose of what they have. And there are areas where you can go for a week and not see a single living person. It is a wasteland in many ways. And, by the way, the aggression on Ukraine is largely due to the fact that Russia is a wasteland, and the demographic problems there are enormous. They want to send Ukrainians to Siberia, so that they build barriers against the Chinese there. They want to eat our blood - that's how it's called in simple words. Get drunk on our blood and eat economically, politically, demographically, etc., ”the political scientist concluded.
