Why is Taiwan mentioned in the bullet points about Russia?
To be fair, Russia took back Crimea from Ukraine. Can thank to Soviets for that, and other border messes, i.e. Armenia.
Russia, China, and NK seem to be playing a game with the West in general, and the US in particular of “Let’s see with how much we can get away with.” Or, “how far can we push this until there is a reaction?”
Putin is the West’s fault. Abandoning the Eastern European and former Soviet states after the fall of the Wall and SU was a monumental failure that is coming around and biting the West in their collective asses.
