GOOGLE TRANSLATION Ask me - why am I sending in Slavic another car packed full of ammunition and equipment as well as other relevant and useful things, I cannot write a report too?

But, I can not write a report because, instead of resting on the weekend, I again run procurement and quietly. We have already polmashiny cargo ...

... And here 's the story as I am preparing for report.

Frendessa approached me. She is a teacher, and she said to her students to draw something to send for the army. Well the truth is... What kids can children say to the soldiers? Especially, all the more students from the first grade! Just coloring pages. Signed with clumsy childish letters.

I somehow shrugged. I thought - well, except what will the guys there want with these children's drawings? I am driving at night and near morning I hear gunfire or sometimes canine at checkpoints. I sometimes give a listen to the concert given on my cell phone.

Of course. Those on post are not on phones. Those at neighboring positions sit, listen, and listen to me live. I have frost on the back, and they talk.

Today here awakened at five in the morning. Consideration supposedly they want to listen to nusic I say, then hear hear.. .

Suddenly: - Sorry , it's time to put on your shoes. - And I hang up. And I understand that now, and there will be fighting. Sweat, When it was quiet, ringing somewhere a call I ask - how many? I say - one today. And we are silent ...

And then there are the children's drawings. In short, I shrugged my shoulders, but gave the folder with pictures and handed over to the boys.

You know, I couldn't even imagine how important progress this folder made at one of the checkpoints.

These children: - Thank you, thank you very much! - Thank Ukrainian military. - With love for soldiers and especially: - Thank you for your protection. Yasik This just revolutionized our boys in Slovyansk .

They did such a ‘blitz’ exhibition of these pictures. They hung them on the captured bus. And from time to time come up and looked for a long time.

I was told: One guy stared at the pictures, then said: - Damn, I still stand, don’t know why I am standing. There is an order to fight. And for what, I didn’t know. - Now you know? - He was asked. - Now I know. - He replied.

This is how it is ...

I have done my best to translate using 3 translators. The following is original text: Предотчётное. Блокпост и живопись. И немного о бойцах невидимого фронта. Спросите у меня - почему это я, отправив в Славянск очередную битком набитую машину амуниции и снаряжения, а также прочих нужных и полезных вещей, не могу написать отчёт? А не могу я написать отчёт потому что, вместо того чтоб отдохнуть на выходных, снова бегаю по закупкам, и незаметно мы имеем уже полмашины груза... ... А вот вам история, пока готовлю я отчёт. Обратилась ко мне френдесса. Она учитель, и предложила она ученикам своим нарисовать чего-то и передать в армию. Ну правда. Ну что могут передать детишки своей армии? Ученики первого класса тем более. Раскраски. Подписанные корявыми детскими буквами. Я-то плечами пожала. Я думала - ну, разве ребятам там до детских рисунков? Я-то по ночам и в час собачий утром иногда слышу канонаду на блокпостах. Мне иногда дают послушать такой концерт по телефону. Ну, какой пост отстреливается - тот не даёт послушать, понятно. Им не до телефонов. А посты соседние - те сидят, слушают, и мне дают послушать. Так и живём. У меня мороз по спине, а они ржут. Сегодня вот разбудили в пять утра. Г-рят, мол, послушать хочешь? Я говорю - слышу, мол, слышу. Мне говорят вдруг: - Извини, пора обуваться. - и бросают трубку. И я понимаю, что сейчас будет бухать и там. Потом, когда затихло, звоню где бухало, спрашиваю - сколько? Мне говорят - один сегодня. Одного нет. И мы молчим... А тут - детские рисунки. Одним словом, плечами я пожала, но папку с рисунками взяла и ребятам передала. Знаете, я даже не представляла, каким важным ходом была эта папка, полученная одним из блокпостов. Вот эти детские: - Дякую, дуже дякую! - Дякую українським військовим. - З любовью солдатам. а особенно: - Дякую за захист. Ясік. просто перевернуло наших мальчиков в Славянске. Они сделали такую блиц-выставку этих рисунков. Они повесили их на трофейный автобус. И время от времени подходят и смотрят подолгу. Мне передали чьи-то слова. Парень долго смотрел на рисунки, потом сказал: - Чорт, до сих пор стоял, не знал зачем стою. Есть приказ - воюем. А для чего, не знал. - Теперь знаешь? - спросили у него. - Теперь знаю. - ответил он. Вот так вот...

Why do you refuse to post your opinion about Svoboda’s platform, which you yourself posted on the thread below? I’ve aksed you several times and in 2 days so far, you have refused to answer. It is in important request, since many of the platforms of Svoboda are downright fascist. Do you support Svoboda on their platform or not?

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3157427/posts?page=8#8

I found this info of Sveboda Party platform:

Svoboda’s platform is called “Our Own Authorities, Our Own Property, Our Own Dignity, on Our Own God-Given Land.” and includes the following points:
1. Ukraine—a presidential republic, head of state is the head of government

2. Lustration of state authority: publication of lists of all Soviet KGB agents that served or continue to serve in Ukraine, dismissal of such people as well as members of the former Communist Party of the Soviet Union from state leadership positions, replace them with graduates of the Ukrainian universities

3. Criminal prosecution for “Ukrainophobia”
4. Only those born in Ukraine can become Ukrainian citizens, with the exceptions for those who have lived in Ukraine for more than 15 years, know the Ukrainian language, culture and Ukrainian Constitution
5. Renunciation[nb 2] of the 2010 Kharkiv agreements
6. Impeachment of President Viktor Yanukovych
7. Ban on abortion, except in cases of medical necessity, or rape; and imprisonment from three to seven years for those who violate this ban
8. Criminalization of public promotion of abortions or calls for abortions (by introducing a fine for doing so)
9. The right to keep and bear arms
10. Occupied Khmelnytskyi Regional Council, January 2014
11. Cancelling taxes on Ukrainian language products — films, music and literature — and instead imposing taxes on non-Ukrainian language products. The proceeds obtained this way will be channeled into developing Ukrainian language products
12. Nationalization of major enterprises, greater state control of the banking system and a ban on privatization of land
13. Energy independence for Ukraine
14. The development of competitive industries, particularly food processing and aircraft engineering, shipbuilding, machine-tool construction, machine manufacturing, the military industrial complex and the aerospace industry
15. Ban on the import of the food products that are also produced inside Ukraine and import only exotic food that is not domestically grown
16. The restoration of the Soviet practice of indicating ethnic origin on passports and birth certificates
17. Proportional representation on executive bodies of ethnic Ukrainians, on the one hand, and national minorities, on the other
18. Ban on adoptions by non-Ukrainians of Ukrainian children
19. Preferential treatment for Ukrainian students in the allocation of dormitory places, and a series of similar changes to existing legal provisions
20. Ordained persons should have no right to be elected to state authorities or local self-government authorities
21. Abolition of Crimean autonomy
22. Abolition of value added tax
23. Farmlands are to be state-owned and given to farmers in hereditary use
24. The state is to implement a firm pro-family policy
25. Dismissal of employees of state structures who had been active in the Soviet apparatus before 1991
26. Decommunization of public space (monuments, names of streets and places)
27. Russia should apologize “for its communist crimes”
28. Ukraine is to leave the Commonwealth of Independent States “and other post-Soviet structures”
29. An explicit guarantee of accession to NATO within a set period of time
30. Ukraine should again re-acquire tactical nuclear weaponry
