Dozens of Ukrainian army defectors rode into the disputed eastern town of Slovyansk today on a column of armoured troop carriers bearing the Russian national flag.

(The APCs with Russian flags in Kramatorsk of Donetsk region slavyansk moved disguised Ukrainian military to infiltrate the part controlled by the armed separatists, said acting head of the faction of the "Batkivshchyna" Sergey Sobolev.)
Isn’t it a really bad day when one need to pose as an enemy to move inside his own country. It really shows a level of trust between people and their government.
Just wait until you have to sign an oath of loyalty to the Democrat Party in order to secure a hospital bed in a US hospital.
