I have recently been looking around on something about the Russians, since my last post was about the US. On Pioneer, I found a document listing so called “secret wars” that Russia has been fighting in areas around them without the people’s knowledge or even with their acceptance. These wars include the takeover of eastern Ukraine and Crimea and the war in Syria, among others. The fact that they can keep this secret for this long and the fact that they can keep the operations going without full approval by the people and without intervention from other countries show the power that Russia has, especially if its acting behind the scenes.
