Since I cut the corporate  tv cable,

I avoid the “news” religiously.

Now when the news intrudes,

And because my betrothed lives in Ukraine

I want to hang my head in shame.

Now what?

What is next to interrupt our plans?

“Scary stuff that Putin!!”, a friend writes.


Why of all the places on earth to have a crisis?

Ahead of my plan to bring her to America,

So we can live as one,

Why now?


I despise a Putin.

Another Hitler we do not need on the world stage;

He is worse than Sadaam Hussein who never invaded.

He should meet the fate of Muammar Gadaffi;

Dragged and gutted on live television by the rebels.



Where are the opposition voices in “the new Moscow”?

Surely all of the Russian people do not endorse this encroachment!

On Davidzon radio in NYC,

At least seventy percent of callers,

Endorse Ukrainian unity and sovereignty.


Now when I read my beloved’s letters,

My mood is scared and sullen.

The more news pundits analyze,

I lose more sleep upon Putin’s aggrandize;

Another hurdle to our happiness;

Just my luck…

I had to weigh-in on this,

Which torments me daily.


May he “poot”-in his own toilet,

And it back-up into his ass,

Choking him on his own shit that vomits out of his mouth!

In the comunist USSR tradition,
Putin is adept at spinning truth (Pravda),
As propaganda (denial).

The one saving grace here
His agression has hastened
His departure from this earth.

Alim is a 25 year old media consultant. He is one of the people involved in launching the Crimea_SOS initiative in social networks.

Everything began on the morning of February 27, 2014. It was already known that crowds of “little green men” with strange intentions were coming to Crimea. “No one understood what was going on yet,” remembers the young man. He called his friends – Tamila Tasheva and Sevgil Musayeva. Together, they decided to create an information resource about Crimea. They received a lot of conflicting information, and it was necessary to verify and collect it in one spot. That’s how they founded Crimea_SOS.

Soon, people started calling Crimea_SOS to report operational information from the peninsula. But also to offer their help. Many calls came from residents of Kyiv and Lviv, who said that…
