You are funny guy, in a sad sort of way. Where is your evidence? Where is the evidence to support your assertions. You have none, you never have any credible evidence. You are just mindlessly repeating Putin's propaganda. If Russia is so peaceful, why did Russia invade, occupy Georgia? Why did Russia invade occupy and annex Ukrainian Crimea? Why did Russia (i.e. Putin) send mercenaries into Eastern Ukraine to foment an insurrection? Why did Putin (i.e. Russia) send in Russian troops to support those mercenaries when they were on the cusp of failure? Russia has suppressed no wars. Syria is still deeply mired in a very violent civil war. Putin/Russia had no problems with Assad killing and using weapons of mass destruction against his own people. It was the US which objected and forced Assad to surrender his weapons of mass destruction and it was the US who destroyed those weapons of mass destructions on a US naval vessel. It has, contrary to your assertions, begun them. Russia is an autocratic nation, run by a dictator. You are on the record here at Sciforums for opposing democracies. You prefer your autocrats.
