DISGUSTING FASCIST RUSSIA

It is pointless in seeking agreement with Putin's Fascist Russia because they are immoral and dishonest. They are incapable of civilized negotiation and are obsessed with their lust for fascist conquests.

In any case, Lavrov is drunk all day, every day, and stupidly repeats the shallow lies of his master over and over and over...

Pointless.

Putin is a dictator. It's easy for dictators to keep countries in order. Ukraine crises was started by dictator Putin. Don't you forget that.

No. I do not get it. There was no crisis in Ukraine until a bunch of Nazi thugs staged a coup de-stat in Kiev.

Holding that presidential election amid a true civil war that ongoes in country?.. Impossible and will hardly give sense! If you please, I personally don't accept a coup as being a popular uprising and a revolution of Ukraine's people when half the country was not even asked. Now that election... Half-country again? Wonder how they are going to provide the election day in south-east when even an armed to the teeth Ukrainian Army soldier in his full equipment can now hardly have there a minute of calm to sit and to crap in woods?? Instead of sending tanks, Kiev should start a concrete dialogue with people in East. The truth is that Kiev now is the main and only 'separatist' to Ukraine.

OK, based on your post Russia, France and the USA should go back to being a monarchy held by the Czars in Russia, the King in France and the King of England in the USA, right? Not to mention China, Thailand, Vietnam and many others where revolutions have taken place. You can't have it both ways.

There was no revolution here!! The U.S., the EU, and their stooges in Kiev created a bloody coup; the stooges who grabbed the power through the coup signed the association agreement with the EU, which was a goal of undertaking the coup. The East of the country, which does not want to join the EU, rejects the imposed junta in Kiev, and the association with the EU, which the Junta signed. But, the East is ignored and the elections are planned to go on, while the army is being sent to the East to subdue the population

Of course. The US and EU did it all!!...LOL All the tens of thousands of people in Kiev were all from the US and EU. Should have known...LOL What a joke. Stick your head back into the sand. Based on your logic then we can assume that all the people protesting in Crimea and eastern Ukraine are Russians, right? If it was that way on one side it must be true on the opposite side, right?

Now we see the Americans leaving Afghanistan with tails between their legs, we also saw the same thing when NAZI USA got it's ass kicked by the Chinese in the Korean war.

We saw the same ass kicking the Yanks got in Vietnam, in the Ardennes, in Iraq, in Somalia, at Little Bighorn they were completely decimated.

One thing I know for sure, Nazi USA will never wage war on Russia, they are loud mouth Cowards.

Hehehehe.

Oh, get a life. You and I are both Americans and Americans have no need for such parities. We are born with the inalienable right to decide what is true and for what side it is true. There are no analogs in our truths. We don't care how much alike things are, if it does not suit us the one is truth and the other falsehood.There are no appeals, there is no higher court. This is the burdensome mandate that the world has bestowed upon us that we accept with honor, fortitude and the sense of exceptionalism that distinguishes every one of us as 'American'.

Now start acting like an American and stop spouting nonsense.
