Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

From the Russian viewpoint, what country isn't a proxy for the US? The Baltic states? Australia? Japan? Turkey? Israel?

The US sticks its nose into everybody else's business, that is true. But in most cases there is a degree of provocation that initiates it. The vast majority of Americans couldn't care less about the world outside; even Mexico and Canada and Hawaii are exotic remote foreign places. Puerto Rico might as well be in the Mediterranean.

Quoting:
Ukraine's debt to the IMF was about $56Bn at the end of 2020. That's just $3Bn less than the current total (at least what's above-board) of "aid" approved from the US alone. Give it a few more months and I'm sure that these underwriters will happily restructure that debt in the form of a piece of the action in future "aid" packages.

I'm sure that the banksters who pull the levers of the World Bank and IMF have personal portfolios with plenty of 'exposure' to the MIC/arms industry.

I add: But they can't erase the debt of some of the poorest countries in the world that are/were not at war in the recent past?
