War as Central to the State

Russian troops in Afghanistan

Russia has become a fascist state. One that values war, for some, as long as they don’t have to fight it. This is not unusual, and we saw a similar attitude after 911 and the beginning of the war on terror. However, the US was not a fascist state or needed war to survive. Vladimir Putin’s Russia is both fascist, and war is central to the regime.
