    How convenient for the terrorist mouthpiece. I hope Luka thinks differently, then extradites this trash to Ukraine. I’m sure they have a very good story to tell. I have doubts that Luka will do the right thing, Muscovy will be threatening all sorts of retribution if he blows apart Muscovy claims there are no mercenaries in Russia.
