I'm afraid NATO will make of Finland what had been making of Ukraine; a weapon !

The thing is, it really is up to these individual sovereign nations to decide if they want to join NATO, who isn't forcing them in any way. It is not up to Putin who, on the other hand, is using NATO as an excuse to attack and regain as much of the old empire as possible. It's all on Putin so I really don't blame any nation for wanting to join, rather than leave themselves completely exposed.

Give Ireland back to the Irish.

End the occupation.

As an Englishman I wish it was that simple. It will happen eventually but to avoid civil bloodshed it has to happen naturally over perhaps another generation or 2.

Yes Ukraine wanted to join NATO the option was denied.

No NATO isn't just a defense organization.

NATO is a military and sometimes attacks other countries and is renowned for stirring up trouble more than keeping it !

Tell us how exactly. You made the claims now back them up.

Hey NATO clowns, do you want to start third world war??..

No, Putin is. NATO isn't attacking any sovereign nations is it.

Finland get all of it's gas from Russia. 100% ...

It may need to look for an alternative supply. I hear it gets cold in winter.

Only 6% of Finlands energy consumption is gas. They are not creating any new contracts with Russia for any energy resources and are confident they won't need any resources from Russia by Autumn 2023.

NATO bombed Serbia

non NATO country for what reason ?

Because of the Serbs ethnic cleansing actions mainly. So many people had to flee that war into neighbouring countries it was starting to cause considerable problems and could've spilt over. Also, the UNs hands were rather tied on taking any action by Russian vetos, who were supportive of the Serbs.

If Japan and the other fascists had won the war it would be the allies held up as war criminals but, thankfully, that's not how it worked out is it.

They don't have to invade, but they will have an excuse to destabilize and wreck havoc.

Yes because that tactic has worked out really well for them so far on a non-NATO member hasn't it.....

I do not feel sorry for the ambassador in any way. He's a Putin enabler, he's helping that regime peddle their lies etc. He's lucky it was only paint IMO.

It sounds a bit discouraging. But one of the reasons my wife and I gave our child a name in kanji was so they would always appear Japanese on any paperwork. Of course, she is Japanese. But we didn't want any school or business to discriminate in advance by knowing she was "half."

So your family register here is in your wifes maiden name?

Posted in: EU defies gas 'blackmail' as Russia pushes deeper into Ukraine See in context

Alfie NoakesToday  08:04 am JST


Yeah. Russia asked Poland and Bulgaria to pay in rubles. They refused. No rubles, no gas, Russia said. Hard to see how that is blackmail; perhaps the definition of blackmail has mysteriously changed in the past few weeks.

I think I'll offer to pay my next gas bill in dollars, see what happens there.

Heh, Russia has contracts in place that state the gas will be paid for in Euros though.

purple_depressed_baconApr. 21  05:03 pm JST

Lucky this happened in Osaka where people actually having beating hearts. If this happened in Tokyo its 50/50 whether or not someone will help the victim off the tracks. As for the man who did the shoving, angry much? All that repressed rage and resentment finally came bubbling to surface. Jail time to cool him off, I gather.

That's total b0))0x, I've seen the response to a drunk man falling onto the Yamanote line, nothing 50/50 about it.

The suspect thing about this Patrick Lancaster fraud is that he only runs around Russian controlled areas angling for anti-Ukranian views. As if Putin is gonna allow an independent American to have free access to report, when he won't even allow his own citizens free access to media. I get that both sides have an agenda to report but this guy is anything but independent. He is part of Putins propaganda machine.

It's quite interesting to hear thoughts of Crimean residents who were all for Russia around 2014. They are not happy with the police state they have their now that's for sure.

RodneyToday  10:11 am JST

I’ve discussed this war with Japanese and it seems to me that they’re mostly angry at Putin and the Russian government, not its people.

I don’t know if you watch Japanese news, but Russia is constantly criticized with no news or defense of events from a Russian perspective or Donbass, only western propaganda.

How hard is it for you to realise that lines have been drawn in the sand. The society we live in are on one side with the Russia on the other. Do you think many rational people on the allied side really cared what the Nazis had to say during WW2?

History will judge Russia unfavourably on this as they are completely in the wrong, I do not care for reporting on the Russian side.
