    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.

      This video could be summarized as a high school history project that got C- for the effort. So many facts wrong, starting with a ‘revelation’ that Russia apparently ‘unified’ in 882. Well, it was Kievan Rus originates by the Viking settlers in present-day Kyiv, Ukraine. Russian history started in the 15th century, after Kievan Rus was totaled by the Mongols in the 13th century. And that’s just a misrepresentation or omission with the intent at 2:15.

          Bullsh*t Ukraine had a democratically elect government and the US and EU made a push to get the control of the country...

                      Crimea was originally Russian, so the so called invasion was not an actual invasion.

                            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.

                              Hey this video is good and all, however Siberia is smaller than shown, as хАбаровск край and Приморский Край are both part of the Russian Far East, and not Siberia

                                            That rape statistics you pulled out seems so off. With Sweden being on top. Maybe since Russia is so corrupt and the rule of law is weak people don't trust the institutions and don't report as much?

                                              Invading Russia is already difficult but no one really ask how many manpower do you need to occupy that big country.

                                                  Russia is truly unconquerable. However, I do think the Chinese would really, really, like to get their hands on Siberia.

                                                    I think China have a claim at some territory of Russia but now they don't have any time to argue about that because of USA
