The crisis, and especially the reaction of the 'west' to it, is much worse than I had feared. The U.S. government and 'western' media claim that the World condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. That is however far from reality. It is only true if true if you believe 'the world' solely exists of the 5-eye spying cooperation (U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand), the European Union, Switzerland, Japan and Singapore. The view differs when you zoom out. The much bigger 'rest of the world' has not condemned Russia but understands how the conflict came about. They blame, like political scientist John Mearsheimer, the U.S. for causing the crisis.
