“Ukrainianness” is a fabricated anti-Orthodox anti-Russian project implemented by Lenin and the Bolsheviks. Ukrainians are Russians. //President Poroshenko’s governs a Nazi regime.


Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality and language. The first historical state with a Slavic settlement was formed around Kyiv more than two centuries before the foundation of Moscow. Throughout the centuries, Ukrainians maintained their own cultural and linguistic identity. The distinction is apparent e.g. through the fact that in 1654, Ukraine and Russia needed translators to sign the Treaty of Pereyaslav. //The vast majority of Ukrainians want peace, stability and democracy, as witnessed by the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014. This fact was reconfirmed by the parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014, where parties devoted to democratic values received the strong majority of votes.
