So the Ukrainians have no honor?

Got it.

Will they send killers for Biden,and Macron if they still don't get what they "need"?

Zelinsky threatened the Western allies a while back about this kind of thing.

How long until they Take Him out?

Interesting Times.

It's Moneywar's imagination.... in there, the Evil Nazi Jew President of Ukraine had this guy killed.

It's sort of a reverse-Putin accusation, I guess.

Check Fico out a bit and you'll find an Islamophobic windbag who embraces "Slavonic solidarity" and has been unhelpful to Ukraine, ergo helpful to Russia. But as to the shooting, we shall see.

In Mafia terms, it raised the gunman's Fico score.

He's the most vocal of the pro-Russian EU. Was? Slovakia elected a pro-Russian President and pro-Russian PM in the last 6 months. Lead to headlines like: "Handle with care: The risks of punishing Slovakia's new government" for the people electing Putin favoring pols.

Do those people want communism?

How do you excuse an assassination of an elected official?

Apparently Slovakian voters didn't want to be Ukrained.

Did he not win a parlamentary election? You'd have to be an authoritarian to believe this is a reasonable response.

Is it only because you don't agree with his politics?

It reminds me of the overthrow of Iranian government in 1953. You all talk a big game about elections and saving democracy, but when it comes to it, you really only care about your interests. At least be honest about it.

You're a ------- idiot. Your posts actually decrease in intelligence as they increase in frequency.
