Just hope their objective isn't the third bridge.
My father served in Nikolaev, back in the soviet days.
Cossacks fighting along side of the Poles? Don't tell Taurus Bulba.
But W can't do any better than follow that idiot FDR who "gave" Poland to his Uncle Joe (Stalin).
May God watch between them.
After all they conquered Moscow together, also fought against Ottoman Empire. This is nothing new.
