Russia sentenced Nadiya Savchenko to 22 years. In a spectacularly unfair "trial" where Nadiya had no chance whatsoever. There is no place for justice in Russia. All is filled with hate and lie.
To all those in Europe claiming "we need Russia as a partner", "not against Russia but with Russia" - have some courage and look this "partner" in the eyes. Listen to things he says behind your back. He despises "Gayropa" with all his soul. He waits for you to go down - so that he would go up.
He has no understanding of decency, mercy, truth. He fights those who can't strike back. Freedom and democracy are a joke to him. He lives in his own paranoid world, run by "secret governments, reptiloids, stone masons, illuminati" - you name it.
He has one obsession: greatness. And yes, now he reaches this goal at Ukraine's cost. Dearly for Ukraine, cheaply for Europe. If you do lift sanctions this summer - the dream of your partner will come true: Ukrainian blood will cost nothing.
But give it some time - he will get busy with you too, your turn will come. In fact, it came already. Just as he tears Ukraine apart, he feasts on your values, soul, unity, reputation. He takes your beloved Europe apart - without you even noticing.
80 years ago there was a different strong man with whom Europe avoided eye contact. We know how it ended. You still don't see the resemblence? I'm afraid you will.
