UPD: 05/06/2014 St. George's Ribbon and Guard Ribbon. What's the Difference?
Those who called the all-Russian action “St. George Ribbon” do not contribute to memory, but to oblivion of the feat of our people.

Since 1917, it was not used at any Soviet state award, after the abolition of the award system of the Russian Republic, the St. George ribbon continued to be used in the award systems of the White armies. During World War II in the Russian Corps (part of the ROA and the Wehrmacht), who fought on the side of Germany.

UPD: 05/06/2014 Putin's plan for May 9
Everyone understands that Russia is terribly tired of Ukraine. Everyone understands that Russia really wants to finally send troops from Slavyansk to Chop itself to Ukraine and get rid of this headache once and for all.
But Ukraine still plays too well the role of an innocent victim in the eyes of the West, so that this could be done without running into the status of a world aggressor and a complete blockade, which, of course, does not want to, despite all the bravado “Yes, we have your sanctions - pah grind. "
Of course, first of all, the key to success of Ukraine in the field of theatrical exposure of itself as an innocent victim is the impotence of our authorities, which are unable to disperse the rally or neutralize the terrorist.
Therefore, the idea of exposing the Ukrainians as evil demons, who insidiously destroy their own population, is not entirely obtained.
Slavyansk, as a nesting place for cute peaceful angels who just want self-determination and autonomy, turned out to be a complete failure. Because Ponomarev - it’s clear what kind of angel. And then he also took hostage foreign observers. And then he also got MANPADS from somewhere, which are an ultra-rare product and their use instantly for each military is a sign that the conflict has reached a qualitatively new level.
UPD: 05/06/2014 For my friend, a Russian girl, I prepared this material
For my acquaintance, a Russian girl, I prepared this material.
She had previously talked with me and realized that her TV was lying. And now she turned to me to tell her the truth about the events in Odessa, because in Russia everyone without exception wants the Ukrainians to die and call us fascists ...
I relied only on a video without comment, with the exception of comments from the scene.
Added some really high-quality descriptions.
Judge for yourself, maybe you will have to inform or persuade someone.

UPD: 05/06/2014 Lying is not painful - but it is painful to answer for your words
The biggest surprise in the entire current situation for me was the rapid, no, instant screeching of our media. Everyone who tried to pretend to be a journalist just yesterday, today is hitting propaganda - frantic, primitive, evil.
Our television is like a bursting abscess, the newspapers and Lenta that I loved once were glassy-eyed empty stuffed animals of their former selves. There is no journalism left in the country. People - ordinary, sane, it seemed - forgot about everything and lie, lie, lie! The make-up girls lie in Vesti and on Pervoy, the correspondents lie, the editors lie, and the chief editors lie in a big way.
And how do they, I wonder, get it? After all, it seems like two months ago there were people like people? After all, all those who today are so desperately, so passionately lying, could not be completely reborn in a month.
UPD: 05/06/2014 The horror of deception or how Russia is lying
Ukraine - no.
The government there is not legitimate, the devil knows who, we do not know them, and we do not see him point blank. There is the only legitimate president, Yanukovych, but he is not there either.
What is it, president, and there is no such state either. There was a state, but there was a revolution, the old state was canceled, and we still do not see a new one. As they say - lost state. It was, but lost somewhere.
And such a people - Ukrainians - no. Ukrainians are Russians, only small, Little Russians. They are like children, they play something, they want to eat, they love Putin very much. They must be taken care of. They need to be taught.
If there are any Ukrainians who want something, then this is Bandera. Bandera-it is the Nazis .. They jumped out of the great Patriotic war and captured the small, non-malevolent and cute, but unreasonable Russian children. We are at war with fascists.
