(Sixty-eight percent of Italians said they would outright refuse.)

These are the same despicable low-lifes who denied that Putin invaded Crimea, that he sent thousands of regular Red Army troops to the Donbas in an attempt to dismember Ukraine AND shot down MH 317. Putin is not Putin, he is “Putler”…complete with brown shirts who do his bidding in Russia and in any country unfortunate enough to border Russia…like the Baltic countries. The U.S. andNATO must stand fast with ALL its member states. Period.

Nothing is more important than throwing off the foul embrace of gay media oppression, and securing true freedom for religious and secular alike.

Russians are mostly white,and mostly christian, they are on our side. Only reason is Washington cartel, Pentagon ,have to have perceived enemy to justify Massive Military budgets. Selling arms keeps USA barely afloat, even though they are drowning in Debt.

There is no way that NATO as presently manned and equipped could stop the Russians if they decided to head West. And anyone that thinks Barak Obama would authorize nuclear release—the only thing that could dissuade them—and screw up his “legacy” is just silly.

Propaganda of this nature is becoming prevalent. Russians speaking Ukrainians are now viewed as terrorists, rather than citizens,even when born into these other nations. So much for the EU lofty non-discrimination policies which also are all or nothing. In the Baltics, Ukraine, Poland, the hammering continues to punish all Russians (Amnesty International). Outside of the EU’s conquer all, sign the paper, submit to EU elite superior visions of how you should live, or be ostracized. Final Solution?
