so, do you know when racial segregation was outlawed in your country?
Very funny. Yes, Russia (in the Soviet Union incarnation) has been known for its advances in space and weaponry and related sciences. Not so much in earthly matters. Witness Russia's agriculture, automotive industry, etc. Surprisingly, oil extraction is also on the list.
Russia won't be able to make any use of that discovery without western technology. That's why they needed Exxon's help. So, this is a leverage on the Russians who depend on the oil money.
Not really, they simply didn't have such forces to both keep their positions and to attack at several different places with such large forces.Their alleged "teleporting" to Novoazovsk area is also remarkable.
As a Ukrainian let me say this to you - you are full of shit.
You mixed cause and effect. The separatists became capable of defeating the Ukrainian army after the influx of heavy armor and weapons. Before that they were losing and retreating all the time.
Please don't talk about Ukraine if you don't really know anything about it and its history.
I agree about your point on Russian citizens. They are just people like all other. They have different opinions, etc. But the same could be said about e.g. Nazi Germany. Most Germans were still normal people. There were some fanatics. There was Hitler at the top. Mostly normal people, but still a very evil country/state. The analogies with what happens in Russia now are striking, IMO.
The only question is if a country behaves like a beast how far are you willing to go to keep the beast happy? You know, like in those fairy tales about dragons - either you keep making sacrifices (gold, virgins, etc) or the dragon gets angry and burns you to ashes.
Do you think that there are ground control operators in Ukraine that speak Spanish but not English? google about that guy, you'll find some information.
Actually there were no BUKs there, so the separatists couldn't get any from UA military. If they have BUKs then those cam from Russia. It's a standard scheme - the separatists claim to have captured something from the army and then they get that from Russia. Often times in 10x quantities comparing to their claims.
Russians kidnap Ukrainians from Ukrainian soil for 'trial' in Russia. See film director Oleg Sentsov who was kidnapped from Cirmea. See Nadia Savchenko, a Ukrainian military officer, who was captured by separatist fighters and moved to Russia.
Lacy underwear is banned. http://edition.cnn.com/2014/02... You may laugh at a regulation like this, but it went into effect yesterday.
You may have a point, but it is implausible that vacuum tubes can be more reliable than solid semiconductor designs. I am old enough to have used Soviet electronics with vacuum tubes.
I was with you until you mentioned Crimea.
