Russian TV (State TV) is now promoting the dissolution of the United States

Although much of the new map is fantasy, the map incorporates an old fear in the SW US... that the Mexicans will recognize old borders and take it back as well as claims to old Texas borders

Their propaganda basically makes fantastic claims inaccurately representing borders of Russian interest claims in what the map it calls Oregon.


If they can sieze Ukraine, why can't the same insanity claim the US?

that Russia is doing in Ukraine isn't as bad as what an imperial US did.

They're looking to make an unacceptable invasion of Ukraine look like a dust-up on a grade-school playground

If that seems Republican it's only because the GOP is trying to take the US back in time to the Founding when the states had much more autonomy if not really sovereinty.

While I would never wish for Texans to be reclaimed by Mexico, I wouldn't mind a bit if they wanted to be an independent nation.

11. They have been promoting that for quite a while. I remember a joker named Igor Panarin...

...who was featured regularly on RT (of course). His big prediction was that the US would erupt into Civil War 2.0 and/or balkanize like the old Yugoslavia. Panarin claimed this would happen by 2010.

P.S. Sorry about the audio/video quality on this clip. Unfortunately, it seems to be the only one out there.
