vdv «I lost many Russian friends - she writes. - Hate to see this enthusiasm when it comes to the "accession" or "annexation" or that the Ukrainians "soon there will be nothing there, and then they will beg the merger" ... None of the restaurant no longer get Crimean champagne - all drank when celebrated the victory. Constantly heard talk about the fact that we, the Russian people, without a sense of God's chosen people, without imperial sentiments would not we. Before the Russian military commissariats crowd volunteers who want to show "Banderovites".
"I was flabbergasted Gorbachev - recognized Aleksievich. - Even he succumbed to the nationalist wave and said that Crimea has long been time to return. Say, restored historical justice ... That he no longer talks about the European way of partnership with Europe on common values & quot ;.
Normal Russia keeps mum. Just try to say something - donesut, and even in jail ... More upekut all hate liberals today. Because of them were dashing the nineties, due to their lost empire. People need to confiscate apartments liberals and their own plant and shoot. God's chosen people! & Quot;
"Who is not happy, the enemy of the people. Part of the fifth column, one of the State Department's henchmen. Stalinist vocabulary completely restored: a traitor, traitor, accomplice of the Nazis. With one difference: the Stalinists now Orthodox, - the article says. - Russia has been unable to accept Western values and Western Christianity.

The TV threaten to turn America into a nuclear dust, discussed the occupation of the whole of Europe ... According to the laws of war is cleaning media. Any alternative sources of information, allowing for other points of view, are destroyed. Any word of truth is equivalent to calling for the overthrow of power, unwanted Internet sites are blocked ».
"Where is Russia? Reforms we prefer war. Thirst for return of lost land can be a maddening millions of people. And besides, intelligent people, who yesterday dreamed of Europeanized Russia.
