  1. This measure is unprecedented in Ukraine’s history. This points at the seriousness about retaking the Crimea. Ukraine can and will achieve this goal.

    • The invaders ran from Kherson to Melitopol or Crimea. Then when we’re finished with Kherson we will push them farther east and south until the stench is gone. I think it will all go rather quickly once the Rascists in Kherson start eating each other. I hope they realize Buryat will need much more salt and ketchup than the others…….;)
