“the Soviets did the most to win WWII”

‘I am of Scots heritage’
De ye belong tae Glasgow ?
You must visit Scotland . I had som fantastic holidays there in my youth.
Regarding the present British - Russian barney, there is another factor that the media over here seldom mentions.
Since the late 1990s the Labour Govt granted asylum to several Chechian ‘separatists’, one is Ahmed Dasuev, can’t remember the others. These induviduals are nasty baskets who are believed to have tortured and beheaded civilians suspected of siding with Russia. They are championed by Amnesty International and the way many actors and writers speak about them, you would think that a messiah has arrived here ! The BBC consistently describes the ‘Russian occupation ‘of Chechnia and one correspondent compared the Chechian terrorists with the French Resistance in WW2.
Understandably the Russians are hacked off about this, the UK is supposed to be fighting a war against international terrorism yet we are sheltering these creatures.
As I understand it, this may be at the root of Moscow’s present attitude.
Where is Chechnia anyway ? Is it true that they are of the Moslem loony faith ?
It’s none of your damn business who I am, Putinista. All you need to know is that I’m an American, unlike yourself.
