US has been meddling in Ukraine since the end of the second world war, and it only got more intense since the 1990s. I don't understand how you could deny this reality if not for NATO apologia.
"NATO creep" as you put it, is also a real thing. NATO expansionism, and specifically, Ukraine joining NATO has been a subject of concern for both the Russian ruling class and many United States officials. Joe Biden himself spoke about how it would be catastrophic to bring in Ukraine into NATO and how it would lead to a war.
This isn't about badmouthing Russia, but about facts, narratives, and particularly NATO narratives, which contradict reality in key issues.
Could you explain how your post is "badmouthing Russia" because I don't see it.
>might have a chilling effect on anyone that can see through the most thinly veiled capitalist propaganda but you probably already realize and don’t care
Could you elaborate on this point?
The ban is short but I will lift it anyways.
