Contrary to what the media tells you, the whole world is not turning on Russia over this war. It’s only the Anglosphere, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and most of Europe. That’s it!
Arab World: Unknown but there seems to be a lot of support for Russia because Arabs will take the opposite of whatever side the US is on because they hate the US.
Syria: Strong support for Russia because Russia helped them in the Civil War.
Iran: Similar situation. Most seem to support Russia because they support the opposite of the US because they hate the US and because Russia is an ally.
Pakistan: My limited understanding is that a lot of people support Russia because they hate the US so much.
Africa: Unknown. No country has sanctioned Russia. The Central African Republic is strongly supporting Russia because Russia helped them.
Latin America: Unknown. No government has sanctioned Russia. The media are all fulminating against Russia but the opinion of the average person is not known.
South Ossetia: This new country supports Russia because Russia helped them, and in fact they are sending a contingent of troops there.
China: The Chinese people support Russia completely. In part this is a legacy of the Cold War when both countries were allies. Plus China is starting to realize that once the West gets done taking down Russia, China is next on the chopping block.
Armenia: People support Russia. Armenia is sending a contingent of troops.
Serbia: Most Serbs support Russia due to ancient roots and Serbs’ hatred of the US and NATO. The Serbian government is anti-Russia, so the people and the state are at odds here. There have been large pro-Russian rallies.
Bulgaria: Most Bulgarians are supporting Russia due to common Slavic Orthodox heritage. There have been large pro-Russian rallies.
Brazil: All of the media is fulminating against Russia but comments on news articles are now running majority pro-Russia. The media and the people are at odds.
Belarus: Most are pro-Russia.
Spain: The government and media are anti-Russia but comments on news sites are now running ~40% pro-Russia.
India: Unknown, ally of Russia.
European countries not mentioned: Unknown, media and governments are mostly Russophobic.
Romania: Many years of anti-Russian propaganda have created a Russophobic population. Most are ignorant of the situation though. Extremely Russophobic media.
Sweden: Similar situation as Romania. Many years of Russophobic hate propaganda have created a country of Russia-haters. However, most people don’t understand the issue well. Media is strongly Russophobic.
Germany: Most are supporting Ukraine and the population is Russophobic. However, ~10% of the population supports Russia. Media wildly Russophobic.
Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Georgia, US, and the UK: Strongly pro-Ukraine and Russophobic in media, state, and population. In Georgia the population is anti-Russia, but the government is more neutral. In Czechia and Slovakia, the governments are extremely anti-Russian, but the opinion of citizens is not known. Reports indicate that Russophobic hysteria is so extreme in the US that people are getting fired from their jobs for supporting Russia.
9 thoughts on “Alt Left: Who Supports Who in the Russo-Ukraine War”
Watched a tourism show on Bulgaria. One of the buildings was in honor of Russia. I believe Russia rescued them from Turks. I’ve heard Germany has much to gain by siding with Russia. The German government seems against it’s own peoples interest now. Many Germans felt this way about Merkel. In America most just seem brainwashed into being anti-Russian. It’s the newest trend. Only the rebel media fringe seems to side with Russia.
Rightwing rebel fringe or leftwing rebel fringe or both?
They meet, don’t they? The Far Left and Far Right meet at some place and they agree a lot. That Far Right is the Alt Right. I guess I’d argue that that Far Left is the Alt Left. Horseshoe theory.
Yes, Alt-Left Tigers and Alt-Right Lions have much in common. Both unbound and untamed cats at the end of the day.
One way the media constantly shows bias, and an agenda is by pushing story after story about how evil Putin is and how the Russian military are monsters. It’s like how they constantly barrage the media with stories where blacks have been done wrong, but they practically ignore stories like the Uber driver with 3 kids who was murdered by a black passenger.
Yes, and they are all in lockstep agreement about this too. I cannot find one single TV media outlet on my cable package that has a pro-Russian POV. There’s not one US newspaper or newsmagazine that has a pro-Russian POV. And from Right to Left, the US political spectrum is exactly how you note it is.
We have a 100% controlled media here in the US and in the West in general.
They don’t talk about the latter because they don’t want to unleash the hidden monster of White racism. I don’t know why they hammer on about cases where Blacks are done wrong. The whole media is invested in this image of the US as this horribly racist country.
I believe a Black posed as an Uber driver and murdered the girl he was trying to rape. A thought I had at the bus was they are still kids, smoking weed and bumping rap. This is a mean old racist view but it’s perhaps even more true today. I was like them playing NBA Jam as a kid without a care in the world. Blacks especially like to make stupid videos of themselves doing nothing. No work and no creativity stifled. In some respects they have the right idea.
The US pushed for this conflict. It’s like a dogfighter pointing out how mean the big dog is during a match.
