The best way for the Western Europeans that hate the EU, is to make them live in Eastern Europe for one year like the regular Romanian/Bulgarian/Ukranian.

After that experience they will fuckn love the EU, the jewish banksters, the CIA, the Pentagoons that provide and protect the Westernized urban consumerist life style.

Go live in Eastern Europe for a year with obly 7000 USD A fuckin year.


You guys in the West have no idea how good you have it.

I know of a lot in Kiev that are on half that (7000US$$) 300-350 per month in fact.

Then there is the other 15 - 20% that are ripping 1000x that amount from knowing the right people in the right place at the right time. Maybe their time has run its path - this would be good, but God help the retired and 300-350$ earners

"...These people are rioting to get into the EU?"

Not necessarily.  They are rioting to get away from russian influence and/or corruption.  And if that means moving towards europe, then I guess that is the lesser of two evils from a Ukrainian perspective...

Almost my exact words yesterday in another thread, and I got lots of down arrows for it. Doesn't matter, this is the truth. Putie-poot lovers can suck it - Ukrainians have had enough of him.

Putin is finished. I have a feeling from what is going around atm that oil will be going to around 50 USD a barrel. Saudi's, America et al will be driving it down to economically collapse Russia. Sucks for the Russian people but Putin is a nobody. A fucking mafioso that stole the Presidency and stole billions more. What is he up to now 50 billion in personal wealth? How many Russians go hungry or drown in their cheap vodka because of this pig.

But what puzzles me the most is how so many Americans cheer for him here. Do you hate your politicians so much that you hate your own country. Do you think your life would be better under a gangster like Putin? Have you ever been to Russia and see the dispair outside of Moscow? People live like animals.

Why do you think Snowden wants out of there? The place is a fucking shithole unless your a mafioso and worth millions or billions. What really scares Putin now is whether the Ukrainians are successfully and throw out Yani boy (who spent time n prison for murdering someone). Because maybe that will give the Russian people the catalyst to get rid of that cocksucker Putin. He is a criminaland no better than a common thug.

Amazing that people here would kneel at his alter....

Nonsense. Its very simple Vladimir Putin is the greatest leader Russia has ever had.

After Gorbachev and the embarrassment of Yeltsin, Russia was on its knees, the Jewish Mafia ruled Moscow and no one paid taxes.

Foreign companies were frightened to do business in Moscow so they concentrated on stealing assets outside of Moscow - Oil, Gas in siberia etc.

Russia was so poor it could not feed its people or pay the wages of its army or afford the fuel to fly its planes.

Into all of this came Vladimir Putin. The mafia shrunk into the shadows the foreign companies handed back their plunder and Russia became strong once again. It is now safe to do business in Russia. It is now safe to walk the streets in Russia. Business men now pay their taxes and foreign companies pay a fair price for Russian resources.

So be careful of those who speak falsely of freedom - freedom from good men like Putin means freedom for gangsters and foreign companies that do not have Russian interests at heart. Vladimir Putin is Russian through and through, he would bleed for Russia.

most are ignorant to know where Russians existed before VV Putin administration...

"Who Lost Russia" Webster Tarpley  utube..I don't always agree with Tarpley, but he is better historian that most..

He tells from on the ground experience shortly after USSR collapse...

Now, from Putin Administration Russians have it better than ever and gaining...

Ukraine is caught in the middle of the fascist EU and Russia.   Some pro EU, some anti EU.... but one thing certainly, agitators to there to punish the government for spurning the EU's advances.   probably something along the lines of.... 'if we (EU) can't have you, then no one can".

But there is wide spread poverty in Eastern Europe. And  corruption.

A few "elite" politicians and secret services people live like kings while the majority are dirt poor.


An interesting experiment for you westerners would be to have a Street View from Google Maps of Romania/Bulgaria. Look at the roads, houses, and you will see what I'm talking about.


You in the West have no ideea how good you  have it.

Ukraine is not that bad - its our 2nd home for 3 months of the year from NZ

The village people (some still use horse and cart) like it that way - Kiev and other main centres look better (people that is) than here in NZ

It is however one big "Market' as my Ukraine wife puts it !!

Great place if you are a middle income earner from West to visit - live full time ?? Yea could do if had too, a lot worse places out there !!

yes and no


ukraine is devided, eastern part mostly rusians, western part ukrainian, current adn forever problem is they stand between two powers

russians' /well actualy not russians but putin and his oligarch/  interest is to directly profit from their vast resources, so he offered ukrainians oligarchs a deal...

europeans' /well actualy not the people, but few bankers and apparatchicks / interest is to also directly profit from their vast resources, so they also offered a deal...

yanukovic, ukrainian president, accepted russians offer, as it was more profitable for him and his clique...

those protesters think, if they cannot be free on their own, its better to be a slave of a west than slave of russians, and it makes sense if you live in a shity blocks of flat, making 150 eur a month, when the same folk accross the border in EU has 4x more, thats their mentality, that was mentality of all citizens from CEE when they joined few years ago...

What you read is western propaganda....

Ukrainian people are not fighting anyone...

Most of this is Lyov and far west, poles from what was Polish lands. Not Ukrainian blood.

witness says they speaking dialect not used in Kyiv

and also sppeaking German..cos many are imported football hooilgans and paid

Ukrainan families I know in Kyiv and area speak Russian, especially for business

All are opposed to this violence and protest...of course they work not troublemakers expect freepay

And they are thankful of Russian help.

Take them out?  Are you proposing ethnic cleansing?

Aside from that Mountain people have always been stronger and tougher and possessing of more cohesive kinship ties than their lowlander counterparts. 

There's a reason the Kurds kicked Alexander's ass throughout his entire march through the territory (never gaining control over it) and why they are still around today (stateless on the world stage, but defacto in control over large swaths of their homeland anyway).

Would you rather fight a random sample of 1000 guys from Wyoming or a random sample of 1000 guys from Delaware (having comparable population sizes)?  The differences should be obvious.

mate, read the story of Nestor Makhno and his ukrainian unssurection army durring 1917-1922. he repeatedly beat white, red, austrian, german, bandits, republican and established free anarchist territory called makhnowscina in great part of what today is south-eastern ukraine....his army consisted only from peasants recruit a former soldiers from tzar army and his weapons were only those he was able to steal...yet he was victorious, at the end betrayed by comunists and attacked from behind he ended up in paris where he worked in renault factory...


so, its not only mountain people that are tough, ukrainian people has cossacks blood, its in them, they only have to wake up, Nestor Makhno did it

Majority of Chechens are not problem...the extremists prey on them also rob, rape, extort,kidnap, slavery and other...

these are worst of society, as exist everywhere...only problem is Chechens by nature are more wild...

the worst are beasts...go there, they might castrate or skin you by little pieces... 

First Chechen war Yeltsin drunk mismanaged, bombed Grozny...killed as many Russian and Chechen civilians equal..

total cluster f...if sent the commanders he should have..they said one division would have cleansed the terrorists..

trouble was Yeltsin didn't trust these best...knew they were tired of his kissing up to west for his familys future..
