  • Behold the priorities of the Putin regime. Doctors get about $900 a month and the illegal mercenaries get $2,700 a month. Who would have thought a soldier would get triple what a doctor gets?

      I couldn’t see a ‘Toilet Bounty’.

      Probably not applicable as the rag heads just shit behind a rock anyway.

      Interestingly, the other day I watched a film called ‘The Bunker’ about Putin’s last days in the Berlin Bunker. Sorry I did of course mean Hitler’s last days in the Berlin Bunker. In one of his many manic rants he mentioned the Red Army’s love of stealing Toilets, so that’s an activity they have enjoyed for many years.
