One must be oppressed by an oppressive country to see it's oppression.
...and what?

I think he means "No, but I get to hate Russia anyway because it's terrible!"

Just going to be nice to see you making the same arguments for when the USA is obviously meddling in a sovereign nation. I'm anti-imperialism [See: my posts on Israel], not anti-russia, despite what you wish to paint people as who disagree with overt hostility against other nations and attempting to impose your will due to political and ethical lines of difference.

Ill give the Russian government one thing, they sure know how to run a propaganda state and impose their viewpoints on their subjects.

Wait, what kind of 'small farm' are we talking here? The agriculture in my area is definitely monoculture-based, but the work's still being done by independant farmers.

Generally from what I've seen, people who furiously hate some other country (like Russia) on the Internet come from countries which fought that country at one point of their history, was subjugated by it and/or separated from it. For Russia it's usually Poland, the Baltic states and (Western) Ukraine.

Long as you're supporting of other imperialist expansionist policies in the future, I'm accepting of the fact that you wish nations to expand even in overtly hostile and meddlesome ways.

Nice to see Russians worrying about detained journalists finally, too, considering one of the main nations known for detaining journalists that isn't 3rd world happens to be Russia. Maybe they'll see some actual insight into the policies of the Kremlin once they realize they do the same thing every day and decide to have a government that is accountable.

Do you not support expansion into crimea, donetsk, and other 'Russian' areas?

The kind of small farm that uses land and resources more efficiently than large scale farming. Basically, the kind of farm that supports the argument that small farms are better than big ones.

It's barely used in Europe, last time I checked. Though it's a more prominent technique in Cuba.

I'm not actively supporting these, at the very maximum I'm sympathizing.
It would be still enough to label me an bloodthirsty enemy of the free world. I'm ending this discussion, because it's going to get flamey soon.

Well, I guess it would be kind of strange if the people hating a country came from a nation with centuries of tradition of peaceful, mutually beneficial trade and cultural exchange.

There's plenty of anti-American sentiment in Europe.

((That might be stretching the definition of peaceful a bit, but...))

They're using military force to take control of the area. That is, as far as remember, the definition of fascism.
