    I have NO idea why Ukraine would be unfriendly to Russia?! The only thing coming to my mind could be perhaps, and only perhaps, because the Ukrainians threw out that cheating, Moscow adoring scoundrel called Yanukovych…

    And where is my country?!

    The fact that our pig of a kremlin stooge president tries hard to lick Putler’s tiny boots doesn’t hide the fact we despise Russian agression and the primitive ways of Ivans and Natashas.

    We will never forget 1968.

    It’s an honor to be a part of this illustrious group.
    Here’s to hoping the US can bump that 73 up a little higher.

      about time it does!

    No the US REPLACED your puppet regime.
    Which still doesn’t justify backstabbing your formerly closest friend and ally.

      Funny how many times i heard Russians call Ukrainians “Brothers” and vice versa.
      I guess they missed the email that said you were no longer family.
      Or Brothers doesn’t mean much in Russia.
