Now Medvedev wants to push back Poland’s borders. But nothing to see here, move along.

Very well done! Russia, under Putin, has always had only ONE goal, and that was to bring the USSR back into existence. He'd gotten away with Crimea, so he thought he could get away with it in Ukraine. But he didn't count on them fighting back as hard as they did, considering the number of Ukrainians that had been 'moved' to Russia for 'safe keeping'.
