        Do diapers come with radars? After all, if the Balts are buying, then they are coming, because they are always afraid of something.

    These strange people are these Latvians. They will choke on sprats, cut down on the social network, but they will definitely buy unnecessary radars for anyone who has blown up their cheeks. As if someone needed them. fool

      What do you think you don’t have to pay for membership in NATO?
      A few more targets for Russian missiles will appear on the maps of the country and I think the population is in the know, but only Riga does not make a decision

      But I don’t give a damn. Because the Americans, their mother’s feet (!), Came up with an awesome way to force their vassals to pay the beneficiary his expenses for acquiring his own benefits.
      Why the hell of Latvia these same radars, except to entertain Americans, I can’t imagine!

        Tooting ! Latvians are eternal sixes! Since antiquity they never had their own statehood. In Riga and in all the fortified cities they were not left with firewood for the night; the toilet was cleaned, free.
        And only under Russia they began to count them for people. And thanks!
        It turns out that the slave who received the code hates the liberator! After the collapse of the USSR, were they "independent" for a long time? Immediately into another slavery! At what they strive to substitute the ass to Europe and Fashington! That is how they are freedom-loving and proud!

    Why do Latvians need a radar? You can save money, set up visuals posts all over the country, and let the sky be watched by the EU with a handset in pants.
