How Ukrainians have angered Putin
But there is such a country Ukraine! There is Ukrainian nation that is very different from Russian - Ukrainians love freedom and they won't tolerate dictatorship. There is rich culture and an incredible rise of patriotism. National Anthem of Ukraine has become the most popular song, people spontaneously sing it in crowded subway stations during rush hour! So many cars (including police cars!) have Ukrainian flags, people hang flags from their balconies, kids in the playgrounds shout, "Glory to Ukraine! Glory to Heroes!"
This is how Ukraine angered Putin, this is how we provoked his military invasion. He is not protecting Russian-speakers in Ukraine, he is here to protect Russia's citizens from this "dangerous virus" of freedom!
Ukrainians were able to overcome a powerful regime of Yanukovich and earned hate of all the dictators of the world.
