  1. That’s a terrible tragedy.
    But truly indescribable for their loved ones.
    A million curses on the rodent nazi and his murder gang.

  2. Poo-a-ton needs to stop. People on both sides die and they don’t care. Ruzzia will never dig out of the hole that is burying them because of one leader that is too stupid to stop. There is no win for them.

    • Amen. What a terrible tragedy. They deserved to see their flag flying over Sevastopol but now they will have to witness that event from above. God bless our Defenders!
      Heroyam slava!!
