Registration for "Ukrainians".
Well - there you go. A form of ethnic cleansing, for sure. Putin's policies remind me so much of Hitler -
which is probably why the French ultra-right - Le Pen - and the English ultra-left - Milne and Corbyn - like him so much.
Him - I mean Putin, but they probably like Hitler as well.
