You should be covered in gold and placed in a secure cabinet at Sevres, France. Next to the meter and kilogram prototypes... as a prototype of unit of mindboggling lunacy. No-one wished to wage a war with ruSSia. It's ruSSia that decided to invade a sovereign state, the borders of which it previously declared "inviolate" for the return of the stockpile of nuclear weapons Ukraine once held. YOU'RE A NATION OF LIARS, AND TREATY-BREAKERS - not different in this respect to Hitler's Germany between 1933 and 1941. And the sole thing I hope is that you'll pay dearly for your mistakes, for your puny threats. Your economy will suffer. Your foreign exchange reserves will thaw. You boast about your 500+ billion foreign exchange reserves... but you've built that with supply of raw materials to others. But that's pennies, if you're to face years of isolation (and this seems to be the case). Poland+Czech Republic+Israel jointly have more than you, but have 1/3 of your population... and we've built it with sales of machinery, means of transport and manufactured goods. BTW - you still hope for support from China. But China is a player able to calculate calmly. They will support you as long it takes for them to stab you in the back. They're already making moves to "calm the West". The main market of China is the U.S.... Russia is the 10th biggest importer of Chinese goods. South Korea, U.S. and Japan (top 3 importers) import 10 times of what you do. Guess which market will they abandon, if they're forced to make that choice? ECONOMY MORON! It's the atomic arsenal of 21st century.
