  • WTF? Russian businesses, like the spooks, military, media etc, are just an extension of the putinazi regime. It’s just another form of invasion.

    Ukraine should be getting rid of all Russian entities; including banks, that unbelievably are still functioning in Ukraine, not bringing in new ones.
    The fact that they permit this just after putler releases his Mein Kampf; which states that Ukraine has two choices : “join us or we destroy you”, is utterly insane.

  • The classic deflection tactic by Zelensky. They make a song and dance about banning Wildberries in Ukraine, while this other pile of shit sneaks in the back door.
