In reality both Russian and Ukrainian militaries should turn their weapons towards
Putin/Kriminalin (Kremlin but criminal at same time).
No one should die for the ego of a mad man.

America is weak. Russia and China will control the world. Thank you WOKE Culture.

Bob says:

He is very brave for speaking out. Putin is doing what dictators, war lords, pharaohs, furors, ceasars and kings have done since the dawn of written history…they attack their smaller neighbors out of paranoia or desire to build empire. This is nothing new. It is simply history repeating itself again and again. I wish this soldier safety.

Bởi vì trận chiến Ukr là khúc dạo đầu của trận chiến tranh giành Bác Cực nên Mỹ sẽ cố gắng duy trì nó.Bây giờ là lúc khó khăn của Mỹ,nợ công và lạm phát sẽ không thể rộng tay trong trận chiến kéo dài nên hy vọng Mỹ sẽ buông tay trả lại hoà bình cho Ukr

Funny seeing ppl wonder how Russians can believe Russian propaganda while not realizing the western propaganda they believe. There’s a reason russian media is banned in the west just like russia bans western media 😛

Chris ChrisL says:

So you can’t verify documents and verify this story is true ? Typical western news. Throw out a story with zero proof ad if it’s gospel. With western medias proven track record of fake news, I’ll pass until you can prove it.
