Waiting Game





 

Waiting Game



Denmark was freed by the west at the end of WW2, but they forgot the small island Bornholm, which Russia then kicked the Nazis off. The Danes were very grateful at first, until they realized the Russians took their sweet time leaving, and people started worrying that they had taken Bornholm. But finally after a long while they left and everybody made a sigh of relief.
But still to this day you can still see Communist monuments on the island that stands out from the rest of the art on Bornholm.

There are many countries in which power was taken by force and somehow few have a problem with that. In ancient times, enough to kill a king or prince to take over - now it is also true but a little more subtle;)
And so far not seek Egypt a few years ago, the countries of the former Yugoslavia, a dozen or so years ago ... And Ukraine now ... This kind of thing just happen ...

Bornholm's sideburns remind me of a Welshman.

Kremlin has said that same phrase "Ukraine / Estonia / any other former SSR... not even a state" since 1991. We do have excellent access to Russian media, you know.

The current government of Ukraine is legal, and new elections are coming soon.

If Kremlin does not even recognize Ukraine as a sovereign state (to quote: "Ukraine ... not even a state"), then one should not assume that any other former SSR is viewed differently from Kremlin. There can't be any sovereign states within the sphere of interest of Kremlin, it would be a contradiction.

Yeah,by the way. That`s a bit strange as long as Germany has its Nazi alter-ego.
And ours today Russia is quite not the same for at least the fact there were some more republics inside USSR like Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other Asian and Caucasian ones, which now are sovereign states

I notice that there isn't a soviet/communist Russia character...will that ever be a thing?

Is it just me or did that "Mayyybeee..." took a more ominous note in recent days. Maybe Russia is not content on just Bornholm and is suggesting maybe Denmark would also take hands with Russia? Deal? Let's handshake on it!

Russia especially craves for peninsulas.
