Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
Was it Russia or the US which backed and then immediately legitimized the usurpers in Ukraine?
Was it Russia or US foreign policy in the ME which created the conditions and brought about the formation of ISIS?
Was it Russia or US who created and implemented a surveillance system which has the capability to spy on virtually everyone all the time? Friends and Foes alike?
Pitting self assertion and regional influence with global hegemony isn't really an honest comparison.
