The Ukrainian cruiser Ukrayina is a Slava-class cruiser ordered by the Soviet Union in the early 1980s. In 2010 the Ukrainian parliament stripped the ship of its name.

Crimea’s militarization is now in full swing. Russia’s actions on the arms build-up and strengthening of its nuclear potential on the peninsula are steps to implement the strategy, born immediately after Crimea was annexed by the Russian Federation.

Ukrainian rock musician Oleg Skripka (widely known in Ukraine) - "People who can not learn Ukrainian, have a low IQ and diagnose "moron". It is necessary to separate them because they are socially dangerous, it is necessary to create a ghetto for them".

About the MH 17 downing.
Special correspondent of Russia's Novaya Gazeta Pavel Kanygin has found exclusive proof of involvement of Russian Colonel Sergey Dubinsky, nom de guerre Khmuryi ('Gloomy' or 'Grumpy'), in the organization of the MH17 downing in occupied territory in Donbas in July 2014.
Col. Dubinsky: "You don't think I did it on my own? The freaks from Moscow did it."

P.S. The Sun has entitled video as the "Racism in Russia", but in the reality, Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk and all their fans with poster "100% White" in video, it's Ukraine, not Russia..

The Sun has corrected that.
And how about football fans in Russia?
Russian football has a history of racism.
There’s everything from monkey chants and banana throwing to player boycotts and even death threats.

Here we say "Buss på" that means the same as "sic 'em".
Since Putin knows some Swedish perhaps he confused it with some German that he speaks fluent.

This week, Eurovision Song Contest begins in Ukraine. Last year Jamala won with the song "1944", which was about the deportation of Crimea's population, the Crimean Tatars.
A song that was seen by Russia as a provocation and criticism of the annexation of Crimea 2014.
SVT's Elin Jönsson has visited the Black Sea Peninsula and met Crimean Tatars who testify of kidnappings and persecution from the Russian authorities.

Some more fun, Igor:)

Билеты на международный конкурс "#Евровидение" в #Киеве вызвали скандал среди "патриотической общественности". Дело в том, что купоны напечатали на русском языке.
Первым высказался по этому поводу генеральный директор дворца "#Украина" #РоманНедзельский. Он усомнился в том, где на самом деле должен пройти конкурс: "в Лужниках или в столице Украины"?
Украинские радикалы потребовали, чтобы билеты незамедлительно перепечатали. Организаторы конкурса пока не дают комментариев по этой ситуации

Tickets for the international contest "Eurovision" in Kiev caused a scandal among the "patriotic public".
The fact is that the coupons were printed in Russian.
Ukrainian radicals demanded that the tickets be reprinted immediately.
Organizers of the contest do not give comments on this situation

A top aide to Vladimir Putin decides how the pro-Moscow administration of eastern Ukraine is run and who gets what jobs there, three former rebel leaders said, challenging Kremlin denials that it calls the shots in the region.
Their comments to Reuters shed light on the role played by the secretive Vladislav Surkov, who has long been at the Russian president's side. The Kremlin says his official role is to advise Putin on Ukraine, where the rebels are fighting government forces.

Tomorrow it's time for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
For Ukrainians are the singing competition a way to show its European neighbors that they are an integral part of Europe and should be full members of the EU.
You notice nothing of the identity crisis which the EU is currently experiencing.
