THE WESTERN WORLD SANCTIONS RUSSIA… RUSSIA SHRUGS IN RESPONSE
Do your worst. Let’s see what you’ve got. Get it all off your chest.
You’ll not change our minds and no matter what you do you will never make us neglect Russia’s security or that of the Russian-speaking majority of our brothers and sisters in the Donbass.
In any case, Russia is now far better prepared than it ever has been to withstand all the western elites can throw at it. New markets have been found, new partnerships entered into, close friends have become even closer, cooperation with friendly states has become broader and financially Russia is more secure than ever. So, bring it on, bring it all on.
You may hurt us a bit. That will make us despise you all the more and cut you from our lives even more completely. But beat us down and make us forget our duty to our homeland and loved ones you will not do. Neither will you disturb our renewed pride in ourselves and our nation. Do your worst. We can take it. We have been through worse as a people.
Do keep the Russian determination to survive no matter what that was seen at Stalingrad. We keep those memories in our hearts forever. We never forget those who harm the Russian people. Perhaps keep that in mind also. Russia is an anvil that will wear out all hammers applied to it. You will never defeat us. No one ever has and you will start no precedent.
Russia is acting to stop a war in the Donbass, not start one. You and your minions in Kiev are the warmongers around here. For eight years you refused to walk the path of peace laid out in Minsk. For eight years you sought confrontation rather than cooperation. For eight years you threatened and sneered, seeking further division not closer dialogue, greater distance not inviting diplomacy. Our patience, which was long and hard won, is now at an end.
Bring on your sanctions. Let’s see what you’ve got. We knew they were coming. You never meant to do anything else. Your plans were always devious, never sincere, always taking the Machiavellian path as untrustworthy plotters, never as men and women of integrity seeking a resolution of differences through mutual respect.
Get all your vicious attempts to harm Russia out and hurry up doing it. Get it all out there and let us give it all one enormous Russian shrug of contempt while you sink ever deeper in debt, social division, crumbling infrastructure and imminent eclipse of your power by the powerhouse economies of Eurasia.
We are waiting. Come on, let’s see it. Display your hatred for us in full while we laugh in your faces… and continue to do what’s right.
