“Military Superpower”

“Russia could be a great and peaceful country for sure if wasn’t for people like that.”

The US / EU backed maiden protests weren’t peaceful.
The US / EU backed Ukrainian genocide in Donbas as recorded by the french documentary “Donbas” in 2016 wasn’t peaceful.
The CIA operation in afganistan to destabilize USSR wasn’t peaceful.
The US involvement in Georgia wasn’t peaceful.

So let’s take Putin out of the equation completely. How would these 4 situations be any different?
