I've heard this phrase so many times before.

"Russia's army is untrained", "Russia doesn't have modern weapons", "Russia's economy will falter", ...

Enough.

The war has been going on for more than two years. In 2014, Russia took Crimea.

Russia has never been and will never be weak. It's sheer size makes it formidable.
You want to say Russia has never been strong .
Bro it has only 2.2 trillion gdp.
For its resources it's pathetic .
I think you want to say that as a dictatorship it doesn't care about it's citizens well being and throws them in the meat grinder for a pointless war.

And all you said it's true. There nukes save them otherwise they would be trown out of Ukraine within a week.

They are so pathetic that "We are taking Kiev in 3 days" became a war of attrition for a bunch of villages that is ongoing for more than 2 years and 4 months.

The west weak leadership have permitted Russia to still be in business up to this point.

We have traitors in EU who side with them like Orban (who forgot how the red army marched on Hungary back in 1956 because they wanted to shape they're own destiny), paid under the tabel politicians ,downright Russian dick sucker's like the Austrian leadership for cheap gas etc.
In the USA we have the Maga crowd who retardely doesn't think Russia is their enemy anymore because of their hatred of the left blocking help.

Actually this make "Russia strong" , Russian propaganda.

Put it this way if you start a fight with a guy and say that in 3 days you are going to beat him ,but you haven't after 2 years+ , it doesn't make you look strong ,it just makes you look like a clown.

Are we talking about the state that collapsed 2 times in the last 100 years?

Did any of those collapses really matter?
Lol what? Putler's whole MO is trying to reverse that 'catastrophe' as he called it. Territory is everything to those barbarians. Of course it mattered. Not to mention countries like mine finally got rid of centuries long russian colonialism

Following the debacle of his camp, this scum Macron announces the dissolution of the national assembly. The RN came in first with more than 30%, and has a strong chance of governing after the next legislative elections.

Are French 2nd round voting all 1v1 between top 2 from 1st round? (in seats without a clear winner)
No, this is it. Game over.

RN had their strongest showing ever, but not the majority that the 1st round tease showed. But Jordan Bardella ain't getting any p*ssy now.

Macron's strategy may seem like it worked, but his Ensemble lost 100 seats.

And while the further left NFP won, they don't have a majority. They colluded (legally) with Ensemble to not run against each other in a lot of districts to avoid splitting the vote against RN. In the process they managed to set aside their differences to stick it to the far right.

France will need to operate now with coalitions to form parliamentary majorities now. Which is pretty much our bread and butter in Portugal.

    Yes, but its not that simple. Check this tweet thread with useful graphs to showcase what occurred:

    So in other words, the center has to make concessions were they going to govern (which they will because they’ll feel responsible), disappointing some of their voters who naturally lean more to either the left-, or right, causing polarisation to grow in the next years.

    Honestly complicated result.

    Here it’s more a thing that the biggest party will try to form a government.
