    NZ should do the same - if it had any sense, but the NZ Defence Force is stupid, given we have no effective combatants to speak of...
    To defeat an adversary, first understand why & how the adversary behaves.

    The West really has no idea what makes China tick - listen carefully to the answers from this China specialist :

    No wonder China is charging ahead on all fronts while the West & the US in particular are getting left behind.

    Russian research ship yantar has been busy over the last few years.

    I wonder if they have placed underwater explosives on most of the world's internet cables.

    Interesting name of the research ship "yantar"... even if it just means "to eat" in English.

    By the way - didn't we had a poster of that name as well? He often sounded like one of Putin's little bots. Pro any Russian aggression and supporting western polarisation where he could.

    Maybe his job was the same as the job of the respective ship - creating confusion and angst in the west.

    The same could be said of the UK too.

    The UK and the EU have a similar approach to the Ukrainian/Russian situation. However lingering Brexit issues may interfere with a broader UK-France and UK-EU co-operation on the matter.

    OR a scotland exit from britain, followed by a revived northern ireland issue.

    Boris may well be a product of their social media ops.

    ... definitely not, even if the name sounds similar.
