Never forget 0.00’s comment to then Russian President Medvedev, “This is my last election. And after my election, I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev’ s response:,”I understand you. I transmit this information to Vladimir “

Eastern Europe, especially Ukraine, is gifted to 0.00’s boss, Vladdy Putin.
