The violence and loss of life in eastern Ukraine is deeply saddening.
Russia has consistently attempted to deny the Ukrainian people the right of self-determination and even recognize that such a country existed, particularly during the days of Soviet communism.
Today the world sees what Ukrainians have been reporting about the Russian government’s lies and evil ways. Russia claims Ukraine started the current turmoil, but who invaded Crimea, Luhansk, Slovyansk and Donetsk? Whose tanks and armed masked thugs are roaming the Eastern territories? The answer is obvious – terrorists from Russia.
The inhumane manner in which these gang members disrespected the 298 souls who perished in Malaysia Flight MH17 is horrible. Rummaging through the dead while stealing their jewelry, wallets and personal belongings can only be described as despicable. Not only did they deliberately interfere with the recovery of the dead, but they also contaminated the area as if to hide self-incriminating evidence. Civilized people do not commit such horrors. These alcohol-abusing terrorists show no mercy and have no respect for life or for themselves.
Russian leaders have been bad news in the past and continue to be today. The citizens of Russia have an imperialist leader in Vladimir Putin who is drunk with power. God help them and us all.
May the innocent fallen rest in peace.
Truth will prevail. Glory to Ukraine! Slava Ukraina!
