Russian Invasion

It is easy to forget the lessons of history.

Easy to not see the parrels of the past.

Convenient to ignore the evidence.

Putin with Russia and one of the largest armies in Europe and a nuclear arsenal to back it up, marched into the Ukraine.

Zelenskyy a first term president, guiding Ukraine's hope to enter the EU by fully democratising his country and clearing corruption, is thrown into the role of a war president, by Russia's invasion.

Both countries have proven issues with corruption, freedom and democracy. Neither are angels, but then which country is?

One has attempted proven reforms, uses a political system similar to our western system.

The other controls information and uses propaganda, lies to its people.

What other country and its leader tried to substantiate the invasion of its neighbours?
