@AstralPreobraz1 @JeorMormont4 @BankaJohn @inaki_delaparra > They have better demographics than do Western Europe or Russia. LOL. Poland has long had one of Europe's lowest TFRs. Ukraine - no comment. As I said above (and was blocked by OP for it to confirm my point), delusional self-aggrandizement is the common language of Slavdom.
PS. There was the idea that Ukrainian refugees in Poland were much likelier to want to return to Ukraine than those in Western Europe, but that doesn't seem to be actually true, no big inter-EU variation. https://t.co/1zFnOqWvhS https://t.co/h48CfPsptw
@NoahCarl90 As I noted in your post, there's a minor irony in the higher educated being both much likelier to leave Ukraine, and supporting maximalist war objectives in opinion polls.
@RichardHanania @NoahCarl90 Yes, Occidentophilia in Ukraine (as in Belarus and Russia itself, and Hungary - but not in China) loads younger and more educated. So that is correct. However, since the object of their affections has democratic pretensions...
E.g., The Saker confidently predicted all dozen of Ukraine's past zero collapses - and in retrospect, demented kremlin boomers must have been thinking along similar lines. https://t.co/n5CovrDcEk But in the end, Ukraine outlived the Saker blog & "AngloZionists" continue winning. https://t.co/KI7TXnHoQM
PS. These morons might well be sold down the river by Ukraine even before the end of the war. Neo-Nazi raiding bands under banner of AFU attacking the heartlands of WW2 partisan resistance doesn't exactly chime with the narrative Ukraine is conveying to the Westerners. https://t.co/zN9eJGxnD8

@TNG512 @DerekPederson3 Maybe but why should Russia care about China's problems? If this scenario develops, it implies Russia lost the Ukraine war in a big way, that in turn implies China never helped it out in its hour of need.
@DerekPederson3 The only scenario in which this has some small chance of happening is one in which pro-Western Alt Right/neocon types come to power in Russia and confront China, perhaps to "atone" for Russia's "guilt" before the Western whites (essentially bigger version of Ukraine vs. Russia).
@TNG512 @DerekPederson3 I don't think Turkey can credibly exert overawning influence over DICh and it will have its own growing Kurdish minority to grapple with. If Russia loses the Ukraine war I see no point in hanging on to the fiscal black hole that's the North Caucasus.
