Hi all,
  For some time Mimi tries to demonstrate and point out the wonderful
  of the Ukrainean people she encounters.
    There is no limit to her admiration : the taxi drivers ,the sculptor,
the people
      on the streets . All friendly , helpful and smiling people.
       Looking eagerly for any possible attributes to enhance her oppinion.
     Now also Bruce joins the ranks , but he can be explained - he wasn't
there in 41.

    On the other hand ,for our people - only disdain .

     Let us not forget that 1,500,000 Jews were butchered in the Ukraine.
      Many mass graves still not discovered.
        Many , many thousands butchered by Ukrainean collaborators even
before the Germans came.
           A nation of Righteous ?
            Have we forgotten ?
     PS . I can imagine the flak I will attract ,following this mail !
