  2. Who is Biden? A dumb fuck rigged into office by leftist gay lunatics, CNBC, CNN, Google and Twitter. America, in particular the next president Ted Cruz, and many senators and congressmen/women, will never let downe Ukraine.

  3. “As a reminder, on December 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he wanted to receive guarantees from the West that Ukraine would not join NATO.”
    This was a very foolish demand, for NATO members would either have to bury the last vestiges of honor they have to agree with this or stay steadfast with their standpoints. You just don’t make a demand that has next to no chance of being fulfilled. Mafia land is in no easy position to force it. Someone will have to buckle… Who will it be?
