                        On April 9, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of St. Matrona. And this day was called - Matrena Semi-rape.

                        On this day, the world celebrates International Top Manager's Day, Finnish Language Day, World Konkani Day and the “laughing gas” birthday.

                        In 1682, the French explorer Robert de La Salle proclaimed the Mississippi River Delta to be the possession of the King of France, Louis XIV, in whose honor Louisiana was named. In 1747, in London, Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat, was executed on treason charges. He became the last person in England sentenced to decapitation by a court. In 1799, the English chemist Humphrey Davy discovered the anesthetic properties of “laughing gas” (nitric oxide). In 1866, the United States introduced the Civil Rights Act, which granted all residents of the country equal rights (excluding Indians living on reserves or in uninhabited territories). In 1963, Winston Churchill became the first foreigner to whom the US Congress awarded the title of honorary citizen of the United States.

                    you will definitely feel it!
                    The smell of durian has a chemical name. This is a condensed aromatic compound Indole, reminiscent of fresh cabbage.

                    But for all, the smell of durian is his own. For some, it smells like sweaty socks, for some it’s garlic, for some it will remind you of the smell of rotten meat or even feces.

      Western curators continue to reassure their aggressive “wards” in terms of providing military assistance. Such a Russophobian foothold, as Ukraine-Washington will not so easily pass. As they say, the Americans intend to fight "until the last Ukrainian." Moreover, NATO plans to widely use the Ukrainian living resource in all kinds of special operations beneficial to the West

      And by the way, about the "eagles" -
      The year of hostilities, which began in 2014, cost Ukraine half of its fighters, cargo planes and military helicopters ... Whatever the true reasons, no other army - not even the Syrian or Iraqi - suffered such heavy losses in today's conflicts.

    The Pentagon confirmed that the United States will strongly support Ukraine in confronting "Russian aggression."

    Nothing new. Everything goes according to the script developed by Brzezinski -
    Tear Ukraine away from Russia and make them enemies.

        Ukraine is an outpost of the West for us. For the same purpose, one can also gradually "tear off from Russia" the Pskov region, Smolensk region, the Far East, etc. The problem is that the idea that the so-called “Ukraine” is part of Russia, as well as the Russian Federation, has been etched out of the consciousness of the new generation.

    (The Secretary of Defense reiterated US support for building the capabilities of Ukrainian forces aimed at more effective defense against Russian aggression.)

    But the head of intelligence in France officially stated that talking about Russian aggression in / in the former Ukraine is nothing more than "bullshit" from the filing of the United States.

    against the backdrop of "Russian aggression"
    You have not seen a real "aggression". The French and Germans at one time experienced this on themselves, but only their memory is felt frayed. The Americans so want Russia to finally strike at Bandera Ukraine, that it even reads in the eyes of not only the chief of the Pentagon, but also the former US ambassadors to Ukraine. Such a space for cries, the introduction of new sanctions for the next 50 years. Stoned by nationalism, Ukraine does not want to understand what fate its supporters have prepared for it.

    The US Secretary of Defense praised "the progress of Ukrainian defense reforms," ​​and his Ukrainian counterpart, in response, "reaffirmed the Ukrainian armed forces' adherence to NATO standards and promised to continue to adhere to Ukraine’s accession to the North Atlantic Alliance."
    A hedgehog, it is clear that Ukraine will not receive any real help from the states, but it is necessary to warm up the anti-Russian direction of Ukraine, and here they promise the golden mountains and fat salmon 3 by 4m. But they are being conducted on these promises, although more than once they have checked on their own experience what these "promises" are worth. Life does not teach Ukrainians anything.

    After Russia’s entry into the world arena, the USA came to their senses and hit North Stream 2, entered Syria in Kurdistan (and now you won’t get them out of there), instructors also gave weapons in Ukraine, they help financially + the whole belt from the countries of “friends” is pumped up with cruise missiles in Romania and also in Poland, plus a bunch of the latest Abrams tanks with the KAZ, and there the Turks came up against Idlib, and we can’t support the large forces that could withstand the Turkish ground if Idlib had a division! ... and arrive as they say in B Oh and on the border of their huge, far from this military theater, and carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic, we have few for a massive instantaneous withdrawal of all the possibilities of Turkey to resist, as you remember, they did not give birth to a new 2nd frigate !! And they only need 26-30 pieces, plus at least 2 destroyers for each fleet, landing ships, supplies, etc.
