The two finalists in Sunday’s presidential election in Ukraine share at least one common point: both have promised to end the ongoing war in the country's easternmost region. The conflict began in 2014, when pro-Moscow separatists took control of the Donbas area, resulting in the founding of two self-proclaimed republics.

War is a place where youngmen that don't know each other or don't hate each other kill themselves, by decisions that politician that know each other but hate each other. But they don't kill themselves.

If you don't feel Ukranian anymore maybe it's time to leave Ukraine.

I wish I knew why there was so much emphasis on stripping rifles? I was in the military myself, a marksmanship instructor for part of my enlistment. Never has stripping a rifle down been used to correct any sort of malfunction in my presence. You pretty much gotta stop wasting time on that and instead practice mag changes and snapping in on a target...If you want to do something repetitive and actually get better.

Russia is an empty country. Why not move there where lots of land is available instead of trying to steal land from Ukraine.

This'll get real interesting with fighters on both east and west, want to be cool elite spec ops and wear multicam.
Also use hearing protection.
And that's an AK-74 (Not 47)
And at least grand most of volunteers on Ukraine's side don't get paid anything. It's more like, they pay to get there.
