    Fascization, anti-Russian primordially Russian lands is a crime against the memory of the Slavic ancestors of the Kherson region and beyond!!!! The world has come into a colossal movement and the fate of many Russian territories is to return to their homeland, where people do not feel second-class, are not oppressed and are free!! The joint fair and free existence of Ukrainians and Poles seems bad, for the latter Ukrainians have always been cattle in history. Taras Bulba is a vivid example of such "existence"!!! All of Little Russia, up to Transnistria, should be freed from ukrobanderofascists and decide on joining Russia !!!.

    No one and no one should ask about joining, enough of the republics already. There won’t be enough to protect the people in Russia each. .As their own, then pensions are 8 thousand each, and their cars are one cooler than the other. In short, all regions of Ukraine are part of Russia. Do not take Volyn and Galicia, enough rakes.

      The Poles have already reserved Volyn and Galicia for themselves.
