  • This government is not mine. I will not support it. Five years of opposition ahead for me. But i don’t care no more. When Zelensky and Putin are im the Hague tribunal, joined by Yanuk, Putin and Trump – i will be there to kill them myself! Cheers!

    • I am very nervous about these developments, but am willing to just watch Z for now. Short leash and a choke collar though. Yanukobytchand Pootie for certain in Hague tribunal. The Buffoon Goon is iffy on that, but may qualify for a private room in a psych ward.
