  1. 34,000 bombs set by Russian terrorists eliminated. Once again showing which side is civilized and lawful yet helped very little in their struggle against the evil from the Kremlin.

    • Yes. As time goes on, the clash between civilisation and savagery becomes more stark. But what have the Ukrainians gained from observing civilised norms of behaviour? With an opponent as nasty and evil as putlerstan, it is necessary to fight fire with fire. Firstly, publish this information, along with a full and detailed list of the shitweasel’s war crimes, in selected national newspapers of America, Britain and Canada, plus in defacto putlerite countries like France and Germany. Secondly, to show they are serious, Ukraine must break all diplomatic, travel and business links with Russia; no matter what the pain. No more Russian banks. Ukrainians in Russia who support their homeland should be advised to return. I don’t think you can expect others to make sacrifices if you don’t do it yourselves. Shut down putlerite parties, seize their assets and kick them all out. Putinoid oligarchs in Ukraine, ie most of them, should lose their cash and property assets and be kicked out.
