  1. Since learning more about the recent events of the Ukrainian people and their struggle for freedom and independence, the more I like them .l’m glad to see the movement to towards a more united front against “tsar putin’s ” “imperialistic expansionism”! We know the “tsar “has always wanted to restore the ussr to it’s former glory. Putting down revolts in the former states to annexation of the Crimea and the establishment of a warm water base in Syria. Until the Russian people remove him from power he puts them at risk of economic disaster and worse.
