I hope you like this video! I know its a bit more serious than some others ones but hopefully its still an enjoyable watch.

Also, people have been asking for them, so I’ve put a link in the description to a copy of the script with sources in footnotes. I’ll be doing that for every video from now on.

Please also go and check out backblaze! Sponsors make this channel happen (seriously) and Backblaze is a legitimately good product that I’ve used for a while so at the very least go and try them out with their 15 day free trial. It helps both me and you out.

Rosija, which has nothing to do with Ruthenia, and which got its name at best in the eighteenth century, nevertheless arrogantly claims the historical heritage of Ruthenia, created 800 years earlier. However, Moscow history is sewn to the history of Ruthenia with white thread and is completely falsified .

In the bloody swamp of Moscow slavery, and not in the harsh glory of the Norman era, is the cradle of Rosija.
Changing the names and dates, we see that the policies of Ivan III and the policies of the modern Moscow empire are not just similar, but identical ...
Rosija was born and brought up in a nasty and humiliated school of Mongol slavery.
She became strong only because she was unsurpassed in the mastery of slavery.
Even when Rosija became independent, it continued to remain a country of slaves.
The policy of Rosija is unchanged. Rosija methods and tactics have changed, and will change, but the main goal of Rosian politics - to conquer the world and rule in it - is and will be unchanged.
Moscow pan-Slavism is just one form of aggression.

There is no other country in the world whose history is so artificial, far-fetched and untruthful, created first to please the politics of the imperial empire, and later to please the ideology of the Soviet empire.
The Kiev princes would be very surprised if they suddenly found out that in a thousand years the state, located thousands of kilometers away, would consider them exclusively their "Russian" ancient ancestors, and the people, culture and language of modern Ukraine on whose land these same Kiev princes lived and who they themselves were - like as a "historical misunderstanding." No comments. But on this basis the whole history of Russia is built !!! In fact, Russia is a historical misunderstanding - for there is no other country in the world where so many cultures and peoples are mixed, and whose history is so artificial, far-fetched and untruthful, created first to please the politics of the imperial empire, and later to please the ideology of the Soviet empire.

Well... You forgot that Russia is most northen country than any other exept Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland. But these 5 countries have ports - you told us about it. But you forgot something - these countries have small population. Even Canada's population is about one forth of population of Russia. Russia have good agriculture lands only in Europe. So it's not only about ports, its about surviving here up to 20th century.

Typical US Propaganda. "Russia the evil will use gas and oil to manipulate your foreign politics" what a bullshit dude. US thinktanks already admited that the main goal of us foreign politics of 20th and 21st centuries was to separate europian (german) knowhow and russian resources.

Russia never invaded Crimea. Crimea has been Ucranian only 70 years in 2500 years of history. Crimea is full of Russians, almost no Ucranians live there. These Crimean Russians prefer to be Russian than Ucranian.
