  1. Yea! I’ve been advocating for this a long time and I’m glad it looks like it’s going to happen. Sure the EU isn’t perfect but way better than Ukraine’s situation right now imo. These three are in the same boat so why not row together!

  2. “The Occupied Trio” would be more apt. I have a friend from Moldova who married a Ukrainian girl and he says there is a very positive atmosphere in Moldova since Maia Sandu took over. For the first time since their “independence” they have a civilised leader who does not report to fucking Russia.
    Putinazi crooks run the organised crime there, including the repellent trade of sex trafficking women and girls to places like Germany and Italy. This needs to be smashed and the traffickers executed.
    I wish it would be possible to say positive things about Georgia, where the putlerite Ivanishvili has an iron grip. The man should should be in charge; Saakash, has been badly beaten and spat upon by putlerite guards as they prepare for a putinazi-type show trial.

  3. “This needs to be smashed and the traffickers executed.”
    And what are Germanystan and spaghettiland doing about this disgusting thing? Knowing those leftist bastards in charge, not nearly enough that could be done. The West has become a playground for all manner of filth from around the world.
    Having said that, I fully agree that the trafficers should be executed … after they have been locked up for a while in the filthiest holes and making little rocks out of big rocks.
