Круть. Оце наважились копнути по зрадникам. Бігали з кульками НАТО-НЕТ, фальшували голосування про перебування ЧФ РФ в Криму, попризначали громадян РФ на посадах в силових струтурах РФ на міністрів в Україні. Заслуговують на вищу міру. Це вони призвели до війни прямо і свідомо, до десятків тис убитих, пораненних, полонених. І спокійно собі ходять, розказують про "треба дружити з Росією, понімать і услишать донбас, воду в Крим". Інше питання чи не закінчиться все як зі справами Майдану. Але сам факт порушення питання і збір доказів - уже крок заслуговуючий на повагу. Данілов молоток. Очищати Україну від ворожих сил.
