? This was a response to Russia invading another country. Not a response to “corrupt government”. Nice hand waving there.It's funny how companies are quick to pull sale of goods from Russians because of a War they didn't ask for initiated by their corrupt government, yet these same companies bend over backwards for China who's government is just as, if not worse than Russia's.
No. There's "we" and there's "they". Our mortal enemies . "Mordor". "Worse than Hitler!" . Dehumanizing Russians is the only way.Infact, this is accusatory to bring anger in people in logical consensus of asking questions. No one is this stupid mate.
Same with Saudis chopping a journalist in their embassy. Hypocrisy. Simple as that. No right or wrong. Just a political agenda, virtue signaling and fear of losing money.
I don't like this trend. It's one thing to sanction Russian exports because those bring money into the county. But moves like this don't punish anyone except the public.
I think the younger generation needs to be exposed to outside influences because they'll otherwise just fall back into line with the state. Even if it means just seeing a bunch of car liveries with the Ukraine flag.

So stop asking questions, fall in line mate.
invade a country for years and literally carpet bomb civilians (they are sub-humans as per propaganda)
Man some of you people are fucking stupid (or are Russian trolls). What do you think we (as in the US and Europe) should do?
“Well, the US invaded Iraq and that was also bad. So I guess it’s fair for Russia to have Ukraine!”
Is that what you believe? If not, we basically have two options. Hot war with Russia or else sanction the shit out of them and inflict severe economic pain. Which do you prefer?
Hardly. It IS the main narrative rn ofc, but what do you expect politicians to say? "Not a big deal, don't worry folks"? Nah. Everyone would like to exploit current situation.If we really wanted to tame Putin we would have taken pre-meditated measure otherwise then war is inevitable because his agenda is literally annexing Europe all the way to Germany's borders and re-enact the old Soviet Borders to keep a Bloc against NATO with the Warsaw Pact.

Russia can barely bite it, let alone chew through so much territory.
So far it looks like Eastern Ukraine (with a more loyal population) is Putin's endgame.
Was it worth it? He seems to believe so.
What would happen next? God I bet even the best intelligence agencies can't give you a straight answer.
I just don't know. Plans do change. No one could imagine that he would actually go there knowing everything he would risk.You really believe thats the endgame?
I'll preface this by saying that they do have a large army and are currently committing just under 1/3 of their entire force in the invasion. The remaining 2/3's is still extremely large. Below is a few reasons of the top of my head they are most likely taking longer than anticipated:everyone thought russia has like monstreus army ... and now we see that its failing on all stuff...
I guess we’ll see when it happens, US military operations certainly aren’t popular among all people, an unprovoced invasion would no doubt cause the world to react, zero doubt about that. As with Russia they would still have allies but the harsh reality is that no country can handle isolation, US is no exception.If the US decides to invade another country, nothing like this will happen. Same with China.
No it isn't. Just think about it. What would happen if Pro Putin Russians spill their guts online? Da great leader invade enemy, da! This will spawn epic arguements when the online gaming space should be accessible to anyone without toxic conversations.I think this is silly. You are mainly punishing the folks who aren't out there invading Ukraine.
maybe because there is lots ppl in russia who dont see this as wrong thing at all .... thats just mind blowing how you can even see it as ok thing .... how much you brainwashed ? crazy thats why they need to wake upWhy punish some random Russian gamers for the mess their government got involved with?
So because a topic might create a argument we should stop all sales of the game in that country. This is just silly. Folks have epic arguments over everything from freedom of speech, pro life, religion, death sentence, homosexuality, political corruption, police shootings, black lives matter, racism, and war so why should a pro Putin Russian war topic be the thing that gets a game pulled from a countryNo it isn't. Just think about it. What would happen if Pro Putin Russians spill their guts online? Da great leader invade enemy, da! This will spawn epic arguements when the online gaming space should be accessible to anyone without toxic conversations.
Yes it's shit for the people there who dont support the war, but Sony plays it safe and it's the best choice a company can make.
I'm not okay with anything, I don't even know what you said I'm ok with, I don't know enough about any of this, and don't call me brainwashed. You know nothing about me. I'm neither Russian or Ukrainian or American or whatever. Have a good day.maybe because there is lots ppl in russia who dont see this as wrong thing at all .... thats just mind blowing how you can even see it as ok thing .... how much you brainwashed ? crazy thats why they need to wake up
I think that's what people don't understand here. Punishing "Russia" and all the citizens there will probably bring a large portion of their population to Putin's side. They are fed propaganda day in and day out, Putin is telling them the whole world is against them, and things like this is making his point.For those of you unfamiliar with the term "whataboutism", it is the logical fallacy where someone tries to discredit another by claiming hypocrisy without actually refuting or disproving the other person's argument.
Post counter-facts to what I posted. Have they stopped buying Oil?
How is punishing Russian Civilian non-combatant gamers sitting at home not taking part in the war doing anything?
Are the people acting at the will of the tyrant? What if you were caught in this situation where you don't support a dictator? Would you feel like you are being punished?
Just some thoughts. Peace and Solidarity has to be equal for everyone. Sad what's happening in Ukraine, but there are others wars in the world as well with equal suffering happening this very moment.
This post isn't to discredit Ukraine and it's suffering, but questioning the hypocrisy of our western countries also taking part in proxy wars in others parts of the world.
