  1. Ukraine, bellum romanum. Don’t allow to be ruled by evilmen. They will steal in impunity and even expect to steal more and their appetite for abuse of power will grow in leaps.God did not make them huge to harass small ones,so if they can not help you, they should not even hurt you. To hell with the soaring of their oil prices
