How low has Cambridge got ?
To allow Ukrs in with their so call culture.
I thought Ukr´s culture is just diluted Russian culture, isn´t it ?

Ukr Billionaire Dmitry Firtash is worth about 5 Billion US dollars in Ukr. Nafto Gas Shares. Another 'poor ukrainian '. Good that he is making a donation , it is a tax write off , but still a good thing.

Funny that some Ukr managed to steal billions, meanwhile common Ukr makes 97 € a month.
Just one thing, I am not certain why would Cambridge be so greedy and accept his laundered money.

Nobody should be complaining. That;s how almost all university chairs are established.

Good for Dmitry Firtash.

After all the Universities filing their curricula with nonsense "studies" such as Black Studies, Fruitloop Studies, Lesbian Studies, etc. It is nice to see something worthwhile being studied for a change.

Something worthwhile, like Ukr´s peasant culture ?
Cambridge could have introduced Ukr wankers association too then.
At least, most of you could show your tricks there.
