And would it necessarily be bad if we talked about her like that? The last edition of our special video show about the war in Ukraine caused a lot of reactions on the Postoj website and on the Postoj TV YouTube channel. In this edition, Andrej Žiarovský, in response to audience questions, focused primarily on two topics: firstly, whether the new Russian rocket launchers can compete with the American HIMARS system used by Ukraine, secondly, whether the military conflict on the territory of our eastern neighbor is really a Russian-American proxy war . In today’s edition you will also learn: 0:45 What is the Russian Tornado rocket launcher and how effective it really is. 10:00 What is a “proxy war”. 12:15 Whether “proxy war” is necessarily a negative thing. 14:45 The Korean War as the first Soviet-American proxy war. 19:00 How the relative success of the Americans during the Korean War led to their involvement in Vietnam. 22:50 How the success of the communists in Vietnam led to later Soviet involvement in Afghanistan. 26:00 What happened in the 1970s in Angola. 28:40 How socialist Czechoslovakia got involved in the Angolan civil war. 30:30 Whether the Arab-Israeli wars can also be considered proxy wars. 38:30 How the Arab-Israeli wars affected arms production in Slovakia. 42:00 To what extent can the current conflict in Ukraine be described as a Russian-American proxy war. Even in two weeks, we want to address audience questions. If you have a question for Andrej Žiarovský, write it in the discussion below the article. We will try to answer it next time.
