  1. To bad the OSCE observers are not around when the shelling and shooting starts. My understanding is that they go back to safe zones every evening and drive to the ceasefire lines each morning.

  2. I lived in the north, south, east and west of Ukraine. I no longer go because of Putin’s plan to bring it back totally under the x-Soviet Union, such as Belarus, Kaliningrad, Caucus Regions, Caspian Sea border countries as well as other countries who cower to him. He rules some areas but not the buffer zone areas to his west that loathe him and Russia! Visiting Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Austria, the Baltic countries, Poland, Crimea, Czech Republic as well as Western Europe. I have witnessed the hatred these people have for Russia. Poland will join Western Ukraine in war if Putin attacks Ukraine. From central Ukraine west fought against the Red Army in WWII. They will die for independence while our Talker in Chief will do nothing. Crimea is dead! No Russian tourist because they have no rubles to travel. They loved American’s!! They were given propaganda for 50 years and found that we were peace loving people with money to spend. Now the propaganda is back. The Russian and Ukrainian people call it a crisis. The private life is dead.
