In the period, which ended together With the start of a pandemic coronavirus, Russia was the unique country, which incessantly demanded billions of dollars in reparations, compensation, and public repentance With a return of territories And sprinkling ashes on the head. You can easily recall the appeals And Even demands to pay And repent for the 2nd world war for the German victims of the red army, over the "partition of Poland" for " famine ", for the Crimea, for Boeing, the Kuril Islands, "the use of weapons of mass destruction on British territory "(i.e. "case Skripal" ), for the Yukos case for global warming (because of the Russian oil And gas), for "Northern stream" in the Donbass, as well as for interference in elections And referendums held in the US, UK, Montenegro, Madagascar And so on.
Coronavirus changed the situation, But Not literally in a better way. Just a club of countries from which the advanced Western world (And its satellites) require trillions of dollars in compensation And reparations, suddenly expanded And now it is collocated With China, which is already beginning to demand trillions of dollars in compensation for economic loss and human life, gone with the coronavirus that Donald trump specifically And consistently calls " Chinese ".
