So live your life….

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

And by opposing end them.

Ey, this is special what’s happenin’ to all my

All my Ukrainian soldiers over there on Donbass…

It may seem blasphemous to walk around the center of Kyiv today, when our Ukrainian soldiers bear all the burdens and hardships of the war with the Russian occupiers.

But we appreciate the efforts of Ukrainian soldiers and bow before them. They are fighting for our freedom and for a peaceful life.

Putin’s strength is the fear of others. He hoped to intimidate the Ukrainians and force them to surrender.

When I go out into the street today, I thereby say – we are not afraid! We are not afraid of your missiles! We are not afraid of your terror! The best answer to this pseudo-imperial madman is to live our own life.

So live your life….
