Post by Nelson Today at 2:17 am
Interesting statement.
Making a distinction between the actions of the Russian government under Putin, and the Russian people.
But Putin has created a lot of hate between Ukraine and Russia.
One example. A friend of mine whose great grand mother survived Leningrad - over a year siege, I believe - calls the Russians "kapsap" now in letters to me.
And you could say that he has a lot of Russian blood in him.
Very diplomatic talk from Poroshenko. Is he trying to affect a compromise? Interesting move.
