          Whatever you say, Ivan. You russian trolls need to step up your game before the kremlin starts paying you in old soda cans.

          Good work, Ukraine. Drive the invaders and their sick sympathizers all the way back to their trash dump of a country where they belong.

          Les is a moron. Russia started the war, no one else. To suggest otherwise is taking sides, with the invading Russians. I’m glad Olga is pushing up daisies, hopefully soon all the other invaders.
