IIRC from another topic you were insisting the Russian Federation is exactly the same as the Soviet Union, no?
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'?

I wasn't insisting that they are exactly the same, but I do believe the chauvinistic attitude towards Ukraine is pretty much the same.

Ukraine was within the Soviet Union. Kind of like saying the US is ‘chauvinistic’ towards Pennsylvania, no?

It doesn’t seem the same at all to me.

Ukraine has been wishing to be a truly independent country for at least a century.

At this point Russia should be reminded that “you catch more flies with honey”.

From the point of view of Ukrainians they will likely never trust Russia ever again.
