  1. But Odessa, Nikolaev, etc. would have to demonstrate their majority willingness to secede to Russia - by referenda best conducted this time under official UN overview, when the time comes. 1. There is nothing there about "majority willingness" or "referenda" in the words of the Vice-Speaker of Russia's "Parliament". On the contrary, he uses the verb "вернуть", which means return · restore · bring back · recover · get back · take back something which rightly belongs to Russia. Neither the Deputy Head of the Russian Security Council and former Russia President, Dmitry Medvedev, mentions "majority willingness" or "referenda", he simply states that "[in the future] there will be more new regions attached to Russia." Note the unconditional "will be attached". The previous experience suggest that this will happen by Russian troops first taking control of the Odessa, Nikolaev, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkov regions, and only then organize "referenda". And not the other way around. 2. "referenda best conducted this time under official UN overview" About this - only after finishing with # 1. One subject at a time.
  2. On today's Russian's news aggregator Yandex: "Russia, apart from the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics (DNR and LNR), should also reclaim its other territories - the Odessa, Nikolaev, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkov regions, believes the Vice-Speaker of the State Duma [Russia "Parliament"], Pyotr Tolstoy." РИА Новости "On September 30th, the anniversary of the reunification of the DNR, LNR, Kherson, and Zaporozhie regions with Russia is celebrated." РИА Новости "According to the results of processing 100% of the ballots in the DNR, 99.23% of the voters expressed their support for joining the Russian Federation, while in the LNR, it was 98.42%, in the Kherson region - 87.05%, and in the Zaporizhzhia region - 93.11%." РИА Новости "The Deputy Head of the Russian Security Council [and former Russia President], Dmitry Medvedev, stated that ' [in the future] there will be more new regions attached to Russia.'"

  3. Guess what is the source of Clayton Morris' claim that "Ukrainian forces quitting by the thousands", more precisely that "Approximatively 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers have surrendered [in the last less than 3 months]"? It is TASS, the state-owned news(?) agency of the Russian Federation (minute 4:24)! No other source is given. Similar news and images can be seen and heard on the Ukrainian state channels, starting with more then a year ago, saying the exactly same thing about massive RUSSIAN surrenders! Why should anyone trust a governmental source of ANY warring party??? Only militants, those interested in broadcasting a specific thesis instead of verified facts. Besides: today (September 29) RIA Novosti reports the above "news" by referring to the above Clayton Morris show, which in fact reproduces TASS ! Thus, RIA Novosti presents this information (?) as stemming from an independent Western source ! This trick was massively used during the Soviet times... but in a somewhat more refined form.
  4. Don't waste everyone's time: I quoted for you the exact part of your post which does constitute an ethnicity-based "argument". Go away!
  5. Yes, you cited approvingly his ethnicity-based "argument". THIS is "hitting rock bottom" and not "openly discussing such a major event of our times and comments by prominent experienced military figures addressing that event".
  6. "if you look into the ethnic background" With this kind of argument, cited approvingly, this Objectivism(?) Forum truly hit rock bottom. @dream_weaver
  7. I still admire your (only) skill: posting the longest possible URLs😁
  8. Mini street-interviews, in Moscow, 4 days ago.
  9. And the moral judgment - who aggressed whom (and snatched territories) - doesn't matter... Neither does the precedent - for the Europe's security... Pathetic.
  10. Why don't you publish it in a serious, peer reviewed, journal? Contrary to an entrenched prejudice, physicist/scientists are extremely eager to welcome a new paradigm, both out of intellectual curiosity and out of their interest in getting the inevitable golden rain of grants. And you could even win your Nobel Price.

  12. Can you please explain? Those who use the terms "egoism" and "profit", operate on the principle that egoism and profit are benevolent and beneficial motivations for human flourishing. No, I was saying that the reconstruction should, legitimately, be a profitable venture. The subject was not about Rand's frame.
