TO:Tasha Ak
when I saw the ultra nationalists were burning down Kiev it did not surprise me they did not think the security of Ukraine. These well trained soldiers will find safety for their family in Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea and now with Russian citizenship they can move to Russia itself.

So, the "New Ukraine" will replace police with street mob-justice? LOL. One more reason for SE and Crimea to secede. These idiots are stupid and crazy, both.

1.Disb anding the Berkut officers
2.Destr oying the memorial site of the fallen Red Army
3.Destroyin g Kiev
4. Banning the Russian language

Amazing reading the 'Western Version' on mainstream media. It is amazing how the people are fed so many lies and even photos are manipulated to tell a different story.

  


Not too sure how that's amazing since RT does the exact same thing lol. Critical thinking is necessary when reading/watching any news piece.

Amazing reading the 'Western Version' on mainstream media. It is amazing how the people are fed so many lies and even photos are manipulated to tell a different story. But the people are more interested in watching the football on TV than in looking at world events in context. Sad

Where are they going to work? Siberia camps? Just kidding.
But on a serious note. What the heck is wrong with these Ukrainians. Wanting the new government with freedom, yet cannot provide freedom who want to protect it. Yea let's riot and destroy our country so everyone is jobless and our economy is gone. Great thinking idiots.
Proud of Russia providing help when needed without violent intervention.
Russian Empire is back, after almost a 100 years. Well done.

Bring them to saver zone of the East where they can raise their families in safety and their dignity could be protected. Great news. Brilliant move by Russia!
Now let us how the ultra nationalists provide security to the population under their control!
