I went on line and found you a potential mate:Russian Embassy Canada
I can't say whether this is good or bad.
I wish Americans remembered history, or at least thought critically about it. We're lied to constantly. Now, of course Putin is a dictator, so don't trust their propaganda media either. But I suspect neither narratives are real, it's probably something else entirely. Although, going by recent history, Russia's propaganda sounds more believable.
Remember WMDs? America invaded Iraq because they had "Weapons of Mass Destruction," after killing countless civilians, we knew by 2008 that it wasn't true, they didn't have WMDs. What happened after that? America stayed in Iraq for half a decade (and returned shortly after leaving). It's always bullshit. America makes trillions of dollars financing wars with tax dollars.
I think the real story is that America was targeting Iran. Iraq is on Iran's western border and Afghanistan is on Iran's eastern border. The American military occupied the two countries which cover Iran's largest borders.
Remember the Cuban Missile Crisis? When Russia installed missiles in Cuba to target the US? Long story short, Americans are banned from visiting Cuba, and American military still occupy Guantanamo Bay.
Now, considering that, Russia's version of the story seems closer to the truth. America is (likely) installing military facilities in the Ukraine, on Russia's border. Sound familiar? They're targeting Russia and Russia isn't having it.
Anyways, disclaimer, this is all speculation. But knowing history, we can't blindly accept the official narrative (from either side), so we should question what we're told. Now, that's too simple, I'm probably wrong, but I remember history, I know better than to cheer lead the narrative.
