It should be noted that Gianmatteo Ferrari is a representative of the opposition Italian League of the North movement, which stands for the restoration of full-fledged relations with Russia and for obtaining greater autonomy in the northern (industrial) regions of Italy. Gianmatteo Ferrari intends to participate in the elections to the local council, which (elections) will be held 5 June this year.

Ferrari called Alexander Prokhorenko a man who gave his life for the sake of a noble cause - the fight against international terrorism.

Recall that the officer of the special operations forces of the RF Armed Forces Alexander Prokhorenko died in Syria at the end of March, being surrounded by militants and causing Russian fire aviation to myself. He was buried in his homeland - in the Orenburg region.

    This is how such an example of our officer's courage inspired ardent Italians. Let them say, only "For".

    I am glad that such a desire of Italians in the city of Varese! Northerners of Italy treat Russia well.
    YES and Venetians, too, which is another article today.

    A very worthy initiative. It so happened historically that Italy owes much of its history to the Russian soldier. The fact that memory is still periodically waking up in some Europeans inspires optimism. In principle, there are noticeable changes in the rhetoric of even European parliamentarians towards the development of pragmatic relations, it is noticeable that the TRUTH is making its way to Europe. Slowly, but still ... After "Georgia 888" there was something similar. I think warming is possible in our relations with Europe. In the long term. Although I suppose exacerbations at the end of 2018 and in 2019, initiated by the United States through Ukraine.

    Something tells me that his offer will not work. Does not correspond to the information policy of the whole of Europe. Choke the initiative.

      Pounce on all the kagal - That's exactly how Comrade Sukhov used to say

      The people of Europe voted on Petition.org for the cancellation of the Eurovision results, but political forces came into play (like a contest and out of politics)

      Of course it will not work, but the point is that they are remembered and respected, I hope that all this was sincerely, and not a simple PR .. hi

Prokhorenko died. Further, just about helping the Italians The Italians have always treated Russia and the Russians with gratitude. They remember that it was the Russian sailors who were the first to come to their aid after the terrible earthquake in Messina. Four people were awarded the highest Italian award the gold medal "For Bravery" for their participation in the fight against fascism on the territory Italy. Poletaev. F. A became a national hero of Italy and an honorary resident of Genoa. You can write a lot, but it seems that this is enough.

    The Italians have always maintained good relations with Russia, perhaps with the exception of the Mussolini period. It is not for nothing that the Americans keep in Italy one of their few fully operational paratroopers, which means that the United States does not trust the Italians in matters of "counteracting Russia."

      Italians came to our enterprise to establish the line that we bought from them.
      We talked about a lot, including politics.
      They are very respectful to us Russians.
      And fiercely hate the Americans.
      Perhaps one of you will say that they said so because they are in Russia?
      On the contrary, they themselves started this conversation; in general, we wanted to not touch politics.
      Like this...
      They have a negative attitude to sanctions. Despite them, we received purchased equipment, and of high quality.
      How did you get it? We won’t talk about this ...
