I had a dream. Buckingham and Nicks played in Donetsk. The song could be appropriate for reflection. The conflict is escalating. Any odds on the 'landslide' coming?

I am 98% convinced that this was done by Russians.
Yes, you did everything right. You must read western press, which is the most reliable and does not contain Propaganda.

But to portray it on only one color - black - is to be a little bit prejudiced, in my humble opinion.

Of course in my country we have saying "všetko zlé je k niečomu dobré" I think in English it would be like everything bad comes with something good.

Maksim, the Sun is quite vulgar newspaper. Other mass-media are more calm. Taking into consideration, how many people died, and that the only fact that some of the rebels are from our territory is quite illegal, the reaction of the others are calm.

Many Russians seem to believe that they really "helped" the people of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and so many places they illegally occupied. Not to mention all the people they murdered and deported out of their own countries.

What a twisted version of History!

I didn't say that, I said that it wasn't so black and white. And the Balts still make profit from the connections with us.

Today for example Latvia guests pop-music festival with our "stars". I don't care about these poppish stars, but I guess our neighbors make profit from it.


Ulmanis, Päts and others don't mind trade with us. Despite they were "right-wing". And the dictator here was a "communist".

In a way, that was more "natural", than the annexation. They have their local autocrats and traded with us, without being in one state.

Can you tell us how you have helped us during the first and second world war? You certainly expert on the history?
As for the topic. as mentioned earlier. Ukraine has no future without Russia. With regard to the situation at the moment, Ukraine has no future. American tycoons have taken most of the Ukrainian industry (example Biden). IMF loans are driving the country into a garbage pit. The EU will never accept ravaged Ukraine in its composition. Attention! Now the question for all of Europe-Who of you will feed more than 40 million impoverished people? Maybe it will make Britain? Maybe Germany? Maybe it will make the U.S.? So armed coup did, the war began and now all you're threw favorite and native Ukraine?

Brits are famous for their tabloid headlines. But i can most honestly tell you that the major evening press tabloids in Finland didn't have blaming headlines like those.
