On the Fourth of July do you think buzzfeed will mention all the inner political workings of the United States or do you think they’ll just let Americans celebrate the holiday? Maybe sometimes politics should just be left out. But then again, your name is Socrates so you do probably know better than anyone.
Also, can you imagine what a slap in the face it is for Ukrainian veterans who fought against the Fascists to be essentially DENIED this holiday thanks to the anti Russian government? Ugh, I just have so many feelings, I feel like that girl in mean girls that didn’t even go there.
Firstly, I’d like to point out that the TOTAL casualties for the Soviet Union after WWII was closer to 40 million (or so says the most recent data). Secondly, this is one of THE MOST important holiday for Russians now. I am thoroughly disappointed that you chose to include anything political in this post. While sure, there are politics involved (as there are in any public parade holiday), it shouldn’t be the focus of today. I wish you would have written an article just about how important this holiday is, I wish you would’ve saved the politics for another day. Remember who this holiday is about and leave conflicting politics out of it, at least for today!
