  • Kovalchuk received an award “for his great contribution to the implementation of socially significant projects in the Republic of Crimea.”

    Nice to get an award for destroying the place you invaded. Maybe this award was for the copious amount of fresh clean water in Crimea, or the beaches and surrounding sea cleaned of sewage in Crimea.

    • I found out yesterday that one of my friends in my city from Russia had her mother move to Crimea. She’s a single pensioner and took up the government on their offer for free relocation. I am seeing this relocation, repopulation scheme with my own ears and eyes. Now I’m just waiting to hear about the whining that there’s no water, electricity or food. Plus, now her daughter can’t go see her anymore. Well, the old lady made the decision and she could have come to America instead but she never believed her daughter’s stories or pictures about America.

      • You can take the Russian out of Russia, but you can never take Russia out of the Russian. Brainwashed to the core. I have no doubt she’ll be telling her daughter it is paradise here, or she’ll be arrested as an agent of the West.

        • She also said more than one million such Moskali have moved into Crimea. Looks a lot like what happened in 1934 Donbas or previously in 1948 Crimea.
          They know their strong arm tactics won’t work so they either chase people out or kill them, and then replace them with puppets to make it look like they have the political support of the region. Then years on, the puppets have children and they have children…

          • Stalin revisited, while the West look on, more worried about gay rights and climate change.

              We live in terrible times. Yes, fag rights, politically correct expressions and gender conform toilets have higher priorities than standing your ground in face of trash countries or helping budding democracies. My German friends have a good saying, concerning bad things: I could never eat as much as I’d like to vomit over this.

          • Russia is itself an empire; built on invasion, occupation, mass murder and race replacement. Crimea is a typical example. As recently as 1920, the indigenous population of Crimea; the Tatars, were the majority. In the course of the 30 years or so before it was switched back to Ukraine in 1953, that population had become a minority; thanks to genocide and deportations.
            Circassia is another example. This revolting, shattering article from wiki is an example of the demonic behaviour of Russian occupiers. Nothing changes with those savages. :-

    “for his great contribution to the implementation of socially significant projects in the Republic of Crimea.”
    This text translated into human language means, “for his great contribution to the implementation of significant Ruskie resettlement and Ukrainian and Tartar eradication projects in the Republic of Crimea.”
