You know what they say about friends and family. You can choose your friends. You can’t choose your family.


After a long, hard and exhausting voyage, Crimea and Sevastopol are returning to their harbour, to their native shores, to their home port, to Russia!

I would like to thank the residents of Crimea and Sevastopol for their consistent and decisive stance and for their clearly expressed will to be with Russia. We all felt for them, and Russia gave them its warmth, turned towards them and opened up its heart to them.

We are gravely concerned over the developments in Ukraine. But I believe that Ukraine will overcome all the hardships. We are not just neighbours, we are family and our future success depends on both of us, Russia and Ukraine.

“Family” is also a word that the mob uses to describe itself. It’s not always meant peacefully. Sometimes it’s used to mean that once in the “family,” you can never get out alive.

The Russian side of the “family” once committed mass murder against the Ukrainian side.

"The Russian side of the “family” once committed mass murder against the Ukrainian side."

Brian, do you actually desire to see genocidal hatred between two related nations when there is none? Does your hearth desire the worst? What is it that makes you loose your marbles when reading about Russia? Do you have to spread neo-Nazi propaganda?

Class-cide, horrible one through hunger, holodomor, was introduced by Stalin and, before him, Lenin (relatively smaller one). The former was 0% Russian, the latter ~ 1/4 Russian, and none of them acted in the name of Russian nationalism. None of them actually started as planned starvation, although Stalin's seem to have taken advantage of situation, and relished it. Both hit peasants as a class and most of these peasants had little strong national conscience. That most of these peasants died on the territory of what is nowadays central/eastern half of modern Ukraine is undisputed (i.e. Lviv/Lemberg was incorporated later and all Pols and others kicked out).

Are all you points about American politics equally well researched?
