Закрутилось нескучно

Цікаво тепер як Аваков з Ківою будуть Медведчука і його канали захищати... Національна Гвардія за кого: за українців чи кремлістів?

Байден ти не міг прийти раніше?

По воплям путінських пропагандистів - їх прищемели таки. Несподівано від Зеленського, але Лайк. Довести справу до кінця, забрати майданчики у чорноротих.


Так гляди і в НАТО вступимо. Навіть Зеленський уже допер, що прийди до влади Медведчук з Портновим - відсутність порушення закону не врятує, а посадять як в Мордорі робиться з Навальним "за те що не вмер від новачка".

У чому підвох?

Невже отямились і закриють російських пропагандистів в Україні? Портнов з Тупицьким тут же оспорять і вистава закінчиться? Татарова не вигнали з ОП поки що.
