Do you honestly think Putin is bothered what Ukraine thinks?

72.png For the first time, the price of gas in Europe has exceeded $1000 per thousand cubic meters.

According to the London Stock Exchange ICE, the price of October futures rose to $1031.3 dollars per one thousand cubic meters.

The total increase in gas prices since the beginning of the day had already exceeded 11%. The White House believes that the winter of 2021/2022 will see Europe facing an energy crisis due to rising gas prices.


So where is all that cheap Russian gas that was promised?

What do Russians miss the most about the USSR?

30 years has passed since collapse of the USSR. Today Russians miss the memory of Soviet Union, the idealized image of it in their memories, not the USSR itself.

In 1980s people didn’t like the way they lived and the government was very inefficient in managing economy and running the country in general. Life wasn’t perfect, but Soviet people still lived happily, had hopes, had all their life ahead of them.

Then came the 1990s, a dire time for all Russians. No laws, no economy, no state, no respect, no clear path in life. It was the record decade in Russia by the number of suicides. Some did manage to accommodate, some were barely surviving, a few got out rich or wealthy, usually by speculating, robbing others or participating in criminal schemes.

Then came 2000s, a decade of economic restoration and rapid economy growth. Then came 2010s, a decade marked by international conflicts, sanctions and internal unrest. Life of people didn’t improve much in 2010s.

It’s 2021 now. Those people who remember USSR are at least 40+ like me. Those who managed to live in the USSR as adults are well over 50.

Those people who lived in USSR remember their childhood, which was really great (the USSR was an excellent place for children), remember their student years (the USSR was a great place for students), remember their youth.

People tend to forget small bad things if they are shadowed by big bad things that happen later. So today people don’t really remember things they disliked in the USSR because disasters of the 1990s were much more terrible.

Deficit of sausages is nothing compared to not being paid for your work for a year or more with over 2500% yearly inflation.

So, yes, Russians do miss the Soviet Union because they mostly remember good things about it and now they understand that things that were “bad” were nothing compared to how bad it really became without the USSR.
