European professor: If the West defeats Russia, then this victory could be pyrrhic for it

The Western edition of Atlantico has published an article that discusses the confrontation between NATO and Russia by Leonardo Dini, philosophy professor, specialist in Eastern Europe.

A Western scholar who positions himself as an expert in the development of democracy believes that the West does not need to aggravate the conflict with Russia, since this could end badly for the West itself.

Italian professor Leonardo Dini points out that colossal efforts will have to be made to win the West over Russia, but even if such a victory takes place, it will most likely turn out to be Pyrrhic.


Losses with such a victory of the West over Russia will be simply wild.

The European philosopher notes that if the West really decides to unite for a military victory over Russia, then the resulting losses will also cause damage to “Western authority”.

Leonardo Dini:

But we must not lose sight of the fact that if the West unites for a war with Russia, other countries may unite against the West itself.

Dini considers in this case a military alliance between Russia, China, Iran and even the accession of India and Turkey to it.

Italian professor:

And in this case, the West will already be defeated.

Western expert recalls that the US and other Western countries continue to supply weapon to Ukraine, which is already leading to a significant depletion of its own reserves. And this despite the fact that so far the outcome cannot be predicted solely in favor of Ukraine. If the West starts direct hostilities against the Russian Federation, then this may end in failure.


So far, from my point of view, one thing is clear: the defeat of the Western bloc will lead to the birth of a real multipolar world.

      Do you think these conclusions are from the mind? Most likely because of the fear for one's own skin and the comfort that is leaving .... soon the number of smart people there will increase by a multiple ...

      Smart? And the understanding that if NATO armies start to defeat us, then Russia will use nuclear weapons? After what Western democracy will still win?

      Politicians and generals have never listened to wise men, and even more so philosophers, and now jesters and buffoons have started up in politics, the specter of victory over Russia promises enrichment to their greedy eyes, they will go, they will definitely go.

    the defeat of the Western bloc will lead to the birth of a real multipolar world.

    —- Defeat in this war is decisive for each of the parties. For the West, this is a loss of political creditworthiness, rot and self-destruction of unions. The inevitability of a change in the world order.

    —- A multipolar world is not necessarily a stable construct. It will take time for it to crystallize.

    I wonder if the United States changes priorities or goals, where will Ukraine end up, provided that it is 90% supported by the West?

      where will Ukraine be

      Ukraine will be in ... opera. Europe does not need Ukraine. Germany, France, Italy, etc. will not tolerate an industrialized competitor.

    that for the victory of the West over Russia, enormous efforts will have to be made, but even if such a victory takes place, it will most likely turn out to be pyrrhic.
    There will be no Western victory. It's just that then there will be no Russia, and we will not allow this.
    We will win! Victory will be ours!

    In addition to Ukraine, there are other countries of the former USSR. The United States is not averse to stirring up something similar there, as in Ukraine. And despite all our efforts, as well as the power vector declared by these countries in relations with our historical enemies, the ground for Russophobia has been prepared there . A series of provocations is enough and it will blaze so that it will not seem enough.

      They've been there for a long time. Now the United States has become active again. Georgia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan .. They shake the pipe and slam the gate

    the defeat of the Western bloc will lead to the birth of a real multipolar world.
    That is why in the West, at all military and political levels, they shout out loud about "the need to defeat Russia" and are ready to supply Ukraine with weapons even to their own detriment. But the citizens of Russia (the real ones) do not doubt their victory.

      in fact, they want a unipolar one, but with the Russian Federation at the head, and for this you first need to make a multipolar one .. but about whether they want the same - someone else in the world, for whom - the replacement of the hegemon: one capital country with another with a bunch of huge problems during the process are simply not needed - they don’t think about it .. as well as the fact that the capital world is a flock, where the leader is always the same .. or option 2 is the return of the USSR, which, unfortunately, is currently a fairy tale

    Does the West need a victory over Russia? Maybe the goal is to tie Russia in Ukraine, and at that time deal with China, and then with Russia how to get either peace on your own terms, or finishing off

      it is quite possible, since the increase in the armed forces in NATO - apart from Poland, no one is particularly carrying out .. yes, they are updating the equipment .. but the number is not increased, despite the fact that the numbers are clearly not enough, they don’t prepare for war, so weapons manufacturers are welded on .. I think precisely because they did not intend and are not going to fight with us themselves ..

    And where did you get the idea that "Pyrrhic victory" is bad? Everything is comparative and relative ... depending on what to compare with! For Pyrrhus, his victory was in the category: "bad!" , because he won the victory, but he didn’t win the war with this victory (!), But he used up all the resources, and there was nothing to win further! That's why he lost! But it could "theoretically" end for Pyrrhus and "for good" if Pyrrhus' opponents also ran out of resources! This is how the notorious "West" behaves! He hopes ... he hopes that if he defeats Russia on "exhaustion", with all resources reset to zero, then there will be no more "battles" ... the "West" will have no opponents with whom to fight further and why resources are needed " now" ! (And over time, resources can come with time!) That's why the old woman Europa is ready to pawn the last silver cigarette case in the "pawnshop" in the hope of the best for herself!

    What's the difference in our case, who wins?

    In my opinion, and not only mine, this is no longer being hidden on TV and the Internet, and everywhere they talk about the world government and Freemasons, no one is embarrassed and directly talk about the common goals of transnational companies, etc. ... And in everything this clearly shows the participation of our authorities, our corporations, aligarhs, etc. ... and here we are talking about who will win, in any case they will win, you and I will be slaves to all this information garbage, we will have covid and vaccinations and digital currency and QR codes on the forehead and passe-partout, etc.... therefore, in this situation, it is simply idiocy to divide the world into Americans, Italians, Ukrainians, Russians, Chinese and Kyrgyz!!!

    The world has been divided for some time into those who rule the world (nations, peoples, rulers, corporations, international platforms such as the UN and WHO) and those for whom the new world order is intended!

    and everyone is trying to plant a theory about insatiable Americans, stupid Italians, stoned Ukrainians, cunning Chinese and undying Russians to us!
    and we are like "prolocks" from Ouerall 1984, fighting between soy, proving who is smart and who is dumb !!!

    Divide and rule! as relevant as ever!
