Great mkamionka 2022-10-02 14:15

Hi Paul,
I suppose with time people are getting used to things and they stop noticing them. This refers both for the little girl passing next to the colorful mural, and to people living in a dictatorship country. Russia is quite a good example. Ironically everybody in Russia supported the war with the Z letters so popular, but only when people were asked to go and participate in the war in person, only ten they started to ask the question, whether they really support the war. Very educational upload,
M

Default To mkamionka: Only eye for own misery?

Thank you Mariusz,


On TV I saw several interviews with young Russians fleeing their country to Georgia.
Each time I noticed that their motivation was that they did not want to die in Ukraine.

I wondered if Russia would now clearly be winning in the war and there would not be many casualties among the Russian soldiers, whether they would also flee.
I could be wrong but from those interviews I deduced that they only fear for their lives and care little about the Ukrainians.

Only once in an interview with a woman somewhere in Russia did I hear that lady claim that Ukraine had done nothing wrong to Russia and that the war made no sense.

I really question the mentality of the Russians. It's rather easy to blame everything on one person (Putin) or on the Kremlin.

Should we grant asylum in our countries to people with such mentality?
Or am I seeing it wrong?

Kind regards,
Paul
