    It is obviously yet another example of ruski-barbarism. Unfortunately this goes on all the time in the shrinking two “Peoples Republics”.

      Right you are. What sick people attacking those that are there strictly to help them, without ANY political motivation. The sooner they’re wiped out, the better. I’m sure they’ve been brainwashed into thinking that MSF is an organization financed by Washington.

    Because I live so far away, I have a question. Do the people of Donetsk sill find themselves enamored with the thug regime which has taken over their lives? Are they still inclined to become a tiny addition to Mother Russia?

    And does anyone have a decent estimate of just how many of those very armed and dangerous guys are now in the eastern part of Ukraine?

    Many thanks.

      A majority were never enamored by the thugs; instead they chose quietly acquiesce for fear of their lives.

    Criminal elements taking advantage of the situation in the East? Now someone in need won’t get what they need because of these lowlifes.

    It just doesnt get any lower than those russian criminals.

    I tell you what, it doesn’t take much for the trappings of civilization to fall form Russians.

    I am curious where Arctic Slicer got their information about the majority. The civilians I know were deathly afraid of Kiev and felt absolutely stuck. Everyone is in agreement that taking aid from the needy is lowly but in conflict this often happens from both sides. I have experienced that first hand.
