All patience and health! ".

      If our central press, ORT, Russia 2, Russia 24 removes journalists and stops reporting in the news that there are fights and people are dying, then they are not going to slaughter ukrovoyak.
      Before the start of the warriors, it is necessary to prepare the population for its beginning and get support. If this is not the case, then combat operations against ukrov are not planned. Gunpowder has free hands.

    I hope (I am sure) that generalized reports on what is happening in the Donbas are provided by the GDP. But what kind of decision will be made in the end, we can only learn from the news programs, tk. politics is not only a tricky business, but also, as they say, "dirty". But it is also impossible to endure the Ukrainian lawlessness indefinitely. People are dying, infrastructure is being destroyed, huge economic losses are being sown, Russia is being slugged and blamed for all grave trash.

      In the meantime, our army is beginning to prepare for the possible entry of NATO troops into Ukraine to support the Kiev regime of Poroshenko (Valtsman).
      "NATO soldiers! You are deceived! You are not peacekeepers! Lay down your arms! You are fighting on foreign territory. With your treacherous attack you have disturbed the peace of a peaceful country. You will be overtaken by just retribution and the wrath of a people who have not yet suffered defeat in any war. Throw down your weapons, stop being puppets in the hands of your leaders! "

There are no nations or people that have not won or won over nirazu, the Spartans will confirm.

    It seems that the technical means of ending this impudent and reckless behavior of the Svidomites will be "patrolling ammunition". As they began to shoot, bam from above into the crown. There are no such drones in service with the VSN yet. And how would come in handy.

    With the end of the "academic" 2016, the Minsk agreements will also end - neither of the parties wants to fulfill them, nor to extend them ?! Consequently, after the "twenty" in China, Dill is activated both on the political and diplomatic front, and on the battlefield! Has Russia already stated that it will not conduct any meetings, talks or negotiations with the "sabotage and terrorist" Kiev regime? And our "overseas" and European "partners" and "fucking friends of Russia" will have a hot autumn politically: elections, opposition, protests against emigrants, acts of terrorism, etc. Let's wait, "when the corpse of my enemy floats with the current past me, contemplating sitting on the river bank"? Good luck and patience to all sane and adequate people of the World!

    Poros - the doll has already decided everything through his head, they may not even agree. The main argument is that he has even less support in the Armed Forces than the civilian population. For such actions as a full-scale offensive, solid "leadership" is needed, and it is not clear where and who began to "steer".
    More about the media. I do not think that this is due to the refusal of support, rather the BCH formed, trained, now it is assumed that they will forge a victory, perhaps with some support but implicit.
    Many thanks to the author for the review. hi

      Hi Igor!

      And for me it looks more like an Orthodox eight-pointed star of Bethlehem)))


      This type of star is found a lot where. And the meaning of such symbolism is diverse
      1. parkello
        parkello 23 August 2016 20: 29
        this is it, the Star of Bethlehem, Orthodox, such can be seen in any Greek monastery or temple. thieves sculpted a lot of things on their bodies. the same crosses and domes of churches, but only their gut is not Orthodox at all, just like the two-headed eagle in Masonic symbolism. so a comparison with thieves in law is rather blasphemy and blasphemy. and on the coat of arms it is quite consistent with its meaning. our people are Orthodox.

        Strangely, I wanted to ask everyone why the bulletins were being dragged from the gold, but interesting articles such as those about "self-assault" on Plotnitsky were not. After all, the blog is the same. There it is interesting that they wrote about the fact that on the VO they gave out well, definitely "Ukrainian drg"!
        Summaries, of course, is a matter, but you also need to upload simultaneous summaries of the APU. And then everyone will "lose" and only "found the right".
        I do not believe either the Magician, nor the reports, nor the Defense Ministry, nor Poltorak. They all lie. And in a war they lie like nowhere else.
        For the sake of objectivity, we need mutual reports. It's like comparing two lies and finding the middle.
        And he noticed one detail - the APU is burrowing into the ground, and everyone is screaming - an offensive ..
