Any Russian or Ukrainian wizzies out there? Without delving too much into politics, how has daily life changed for you? I’m a eurofag and I’ve been curious about how all this chaos has effected regular everyday wizards.

I think it will. I've been reading about how Russia handled its wars in the past and their main method is not giving a shit about its citizens. They just keep sending wave after wave of soldiers, losing hundreds of thousands in the process. Life is cheap in Russia, they don't give a fuck. If you destroy all their tanks and planes they'll just walk to Kyiv, barefooted if needed. Seems like it's going to be a pyrrhic victory, we'll see.

I think it's even dumber considering there has been conflict for 8 years. News just started talking about it all day suddenly.

 No.290623

>>290611
isn't this revisionist history a little too early? it was only 3 months ago, i'm sure we all remember the lead up. the media were claiming the exercises on the borders of ukraine were configured for invasion, but nobody took it seriously because nobody believes the media, and i think most people were honestly surprised when it happened. but we also see from this the standards have dropped significantly, because now you're having to defend NATO and the US government and not just an institution like the media (probably a lost cause)

Wait what? Isn't that the opposition of the definition of a skeptic?

It should be. But most people who think of themselves as skeptics have their own dogma, and take everything uncritically as long as its not mainstream.

I knew the invasion was going to happen even before the government announced it simply because of Russia's negotiating posture. I said the same in posts I made at the time and people called me dumb. All you have to do is actually follow the news closely and certain patterns become easy to figure out. Please don't assume everyone is as willfully ignorant as you.

 No.290682

>>290655
for clarity i wasn't writing about myself, but about most people. geopolitics spergs would've already known what was going on in the east, along with the gayops in kazakhstan and karabakh where russia had to intervene in the months/years prior

 No.290711

I was debating the war with my dad, and he was saying that while the USA invasions were also bad, they were generally against unpopular governments hated by their people, and you saw people in the streets celebrating in the early days. And I said maybe on RT you see the same. But actually I haven't really seen much on RT.

But I was just wondering if from alt sources, there are pics vids of Ukraine welcoming Russia as liberators?

 No.290718

>>290711
The heavily populated seperatist regions welcomed Russia back at the dawn of the conflict, but Ukrainian administration retconned those areas as being of Russia from the start to invalidate claims that many Ukraine citizens welcomed Russian troops. Liberating these regions from Zelesnky was a driving goal behind the invasion because even after following the "democratic process", Ukraine still denied the seperatists any change, and then cut off services and support for those communities, throwing them in to poverty.

 No.290789

Received 5 packs of Oreos (16 cookies each) as part of the humanitarian aid. Ukrainian plant which was making it was bombed so maybe that's the reason.

While inspecting it, I found out that almost everything is written in Hebrew language. Haven't eaten them yet so can't testify.

besides the fireworks at the start there's lots of footage of locals giving passing BMPs bread and pallets of eggs, and you may remember in kiev the footage of paranoid neighbors reporting each other in case they were out placing markers for cruise missiles

 No.290794

any footage of NEW areas of liberated Ukraine cheering in the streets?

Russia is a oil & gas company with a country attached to it

 No.290931

So I hear a lot about Russia's longterm mistakes IE having a crappy army.

But what about its short-term mistakes? Starting from 2021. With the army it actually has, what did it do wrong? Should it have concentrated in one sector? Thrown everything at Kiev? Or just give up on Kiev and only focus on Donbas?

 No.290934

>>290931
it was a political miscalculation that the zelensky regime would surrender, but it's apparently an easy decision for him to sacrifice ukrainians. the special operation was entirely a success, the ukrainian air force, radar sites, and airports were either destroyed or captured on day 1. it's not a victory to have a column of vehicles sitting outside your capital

 No.290935

>>290934
The entire Russian Kiev front collapsed. At most it could be called a diversion from Donbas, but it didn't even do that successfully, it didn't help Russia make breakthroughs on other fronts

 No.290936

>>290935
your mistake is in presuming it was a military front, when it was intended to put political pressure on the kiev government to surrender. there was no collapse, they just drove off after sitting there unopposed for weeks

According to the international law, it's the occupant who should service the occupied territories. Despite this Ukrainian government provided pensions which led to situation when the same people had been receiving two pensions: one from Russia and one from Ukraine.

As a (western) eurofag:
It's so tiresome. I didn't understand this virus thing, but it was comfy most of the time. As a NEET I could avoid most the most state-induced repercussions. But now, this worldwide-crisis thing is getting too far. The old saying: "Avoid news!" - I feel more and more unable to apply it, since I'm an internets addict but too dumb and lazy for places which completely ignore it because they have some high iq things to do, or a least a time-consuming hobby. Bad time for fucked up attention span.

I followed the war closely when it first started, but now its just background noise, maybe its not the same in EU

This is an old saying? Man, I wish it was said more often, because I've only realized this recently.

what the fuck are you smoking? Russia seems similarly crazy to live in these towers when they have literally the most land of any country on Earth.

beats the way the us does things

-rural, nowhere near anything
-suburb, in a bullshit rat maze housing zone that still manages to somehow be near no stores
-city, where the cost of everything is so insane

although it's still full of problems. like old guys paying their life savings just to get an apartment only to end up with a half finished apartment where nothing works. some kind of compromise between western quality and russian utility would be best

 No.291209

Was it easy to dodge military service? Did you get any trouble for it afterwards, like are you on some record that makes things harder for you? I'm just curious.
Good job doing it anyway, it's not worth it to become a slave to a government that doesn't really give a shit about you. And this applies to every single country.

do people really do krokodil in bug numbers over there?or is it just usa propanda about le ebil russians?

 No.292023

>>292005
Not really, no. Krokodil is a big thing in US media because it produces a shocking picture and generates clicks, but almost no one uses it anymore. Although, to be honest, there are now drugs in circulation that make krokodil look tame.

 No.292082

do you have any more info on this?even on russian language, I can google-translate it.

Russia expected the east of Ukraine to welcome them with open arms and support and supply them. It didn't happen though, east of Ukraine is less pro-Russia than it was in 2014. I think this war is also driving more anti-Russian sentiment in the east, if your house or someone you know gets bombed by an invader it usually turns the person against the invader, which is what has happened in places like Mariupol and Kharkov, Russia has just hammered them, Mariupol specifically because they wanted some land corridor and to block some trading from Ukraine, they are just a piece in a game to Russia.
