According to Daniel 7,
Bear = Russia“And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and
three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.” Daniel 7:5Here we have three ribs in its mouth, devouring much flesh.
Three Ribs = Ukraine + Other nations
Devour much flesh = Destruction from War (Deut 32:42)
So why does BEAR represent Russia?
According to (Proverbs 28, Hosea 13:8, 2 Samuel 17),
15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.“For, said Hushai, thou knowest thy father and his men, that they
mighty men, and they
be chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field: and thy father
is a man of war, and will not lodge with the people.”“I will meet them as a bear
that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.”Bears attack when they are robbed of their babies.
Ukraine is Russia’s babies. Russia feels she is being robbed of her babies.
