    Wonder how long before the Russian will learn about the terrible tragedy which cost the lives of at least 3000 of their people in the Donbas ;)

    THAT, is the biggest tragedy of modern Russia, whose government is trying to hide…

      Wrong again, “Alain”: your UkroNazis are the ones bombing people in that area. Precisely the same péople you want all dead, instead of asking their opinion.
      Love your “values”.
