I get that you are trying to examine the complex underpinnings and history begin Putin's move. However, consider this scenario: Lets say the Holocaust is being discussed, and you say - "well Hitler had his reasons; Hitler made concentration camps because of this reason; this was why Hitler felt he had to choose this path" And you do not condemn it - then it comes off as being an apologist, and it comes off as justifying and agreeing with his actions. One can certainly examine Hitler's actions and reasons behind them - but it would be important to acknowledge that you disagree with them. 26 minutes ago, sotos8 said: you can't compare a holocaust to a war and to who it would be important? The holocaust was used as an example. Let me rephrase: Lets say a man kills all the people in the neighboring house. If you say "Well, I can understand his reasons. The neighbors were gossiping about him. One of the neighbors was flirting with his wife etc etc", and you do not condemn the murder - then you are in a way, justifying it and condoning it. We are talking about Putin INVADING a sovereign country in 2022, leading to unfathomable death, destruction, displacement and misery. You can certainly examine his rationale but yes, you SHOULD denounce it. Otherwise, as I said before - it does appear you are justifying his invasion and you are agreeing with it.
