  1. Six thousand cockroaches is nothing. They’ve been playing this game for months now; increasing troops, decreasing troops, increasing, decreasing. There was never any danger whatsoever of an invasion from Belarus. The cockroaches only wanted to bind AFU troops and material in the border region.
