UK/Ukraine might indeed pose challenge.
As Russian Varangas were idealizing Brtish Empire as mentor.
As British Normans were idealizing Russian Empire as
students, somewhat a bit wild -
As new World made Churchill and Stalin allies and Stalin
tried soften Churchill, showing him in vain his red-haired
daughter -
As I tried remind Brutish, since Russians burned history books,
that Saxons came from Ukraine and Ings from Ingushetia
(North border of Georgia) –
would it be in vain also?
I hope not, unless, not withstanding the threat to Human
Civilization and Caucasian race at large, Britain is still owned
by Norman invaders that have illusion that their students,
Russian Viking-Varanga, will not do to them the same that
they did to a big Norman guy in a movie "The 13th Warrier"...
As Bechtel, with advise of Brits, in 1954, gave to ethnic Russia
technology to build arsenals of A-bombs, to bomb resisting
repopulation by Russia nations, like Georgia and Ukraine –
will British help us all to prohibit Russians use, or threaten
us with A-bombs, by the expand their evil Empire?
