      Looks like I'm an average Russian laughing It's a shame that due to several ghouls, Ukraine is fading into the background more and more. Here from the new
      Ukrainian nationalists decided to encourage the Polish team in a worthy confrontation the day before. So, UNA-UNSO announced that it would award the Order of the UNSO Desert Cross (in case of victory of the Polish team) to every Polish player who scored a goal against the Russians.

      (By the way, only 20 people were awarded the Unsov Order for the 24 years of the organization’s existence). “Russia’s Day coincides with the anniversary of the capture of Moscow by the Polish army and the troops of Sagaidachny,” recalls Igor Mazur, chairman of the UNA-UNSO political council. - Therefore, we decided to stimulate the Polish team to defeat us on this symbolic day. And thereby continue the celebration of the victory of the Ukrainian team over the Swedes. Today, Poland and I are allies in the confrontation with Russia. ” The honorary mission to reward the Poles (in case of victory, of course) the leadership of UNA-UNSO entrusted precisely to Masuria

      Britain, so modestly silent, I think its very place between Georgia and the United States.
      In general, statistics is a conditional thing. It is not written how many people took part in the survey and when the survey was conducted ... There are many "BUT" in these social studies.

    And where did all three Baltic states go, and even with Poland? In fact, these are not hostile countries, these are hostile manifestations of the main enemy - the Anglo-Saxons (Britain, USA ...).

In other matters, the budget will be increased by 2013-2014% of GDP , which in turn led to the attention of Europe to Ukraine.

    The ministry plans to spend approximately $ 650 million for purchases and modernization of military equipment, as well as for scientific and military design projects, including the production of L-39 Albatros training jet aircraft and the MiG-29 and Su 27М2 fighter jets.

    Yes ...... the results were slightly surprised.
    Ukraine put below Germany. It is a pity of course, but this is the result of the anti-Russian orientation of the Ukrainian elite, and in some regions of the people themselves.
    Honestly, sometimes it’s immensely surprising not just an attempt to show themselves as a completely separate people, with their own culture and history, but a real fascist hatred of the Russians.
    Only two countries hate us so fiercely, right up to the shit, it is Poland and Western Ukraine.
    Personally, I am sorry that, unfortunately, there is a tendency to increase the gap between our peoples.
    But in general it is quite similar to the truth.
    I just don't get tired of talking about China that this is a friend, so to speak, "compelled", well, and somehow they completely forgot about the Angles. These are still ghouls. With them, we (in contrast to the USA) continue to grater for more than one century. To one degree or another, the islanders always put a pig on us

    In principle, everything is correct. Unfortunately, Ukraine is moving away from us. The Georgians, surprisingly, outstripped the United States, and good old England does not appear at all. Although this degenerating island power deserves a decent rating in the "enemy" column.

    This survey does not reflect the opinion of the people. I don’t take all such "ANALnytics" seriously. Who pays for the order, in favor of that and the numbers. I do not know in which such settlements they conduct their polls. But I would advise not to trust the published figures and not to draw any conclusions from them. Sincerely.

    The fact that the Russians understand that Belarus and Kazakhstan are closest of all is certainly good. But such a small percentage who support reunification with Ukraine is disappointing. Perhaps it’s actually bigger.

      Russia has only one enemy - the United States, all these Georgians, Poland, the Baltic states are America's litter, they are as long as America's friends, while the states will disappear, and there will be no enemies left. In Europe, there are 2 great countries, France and Germany, and one cannot say that they are enemies of Russia, but rather "restrained friendship." These countries are on our fuel needle. Remind at least 1 case when France Russia after the 91st year, one sale of the Mistrals is worth something (a modern or not very ship is not so important now, the very fact of the sale of weapons and military technologies to a non-NATO country is important). As for Germany ... The Germans are originally Western Slavs and they have a mentality similar to ours - the German can be either a mortal enemy or a loyal friend, but they will not crap on the sly, like America and the Britons.
