    So, information on poster is next:


    Stay calm and peaceful when Russian troops enter the city.
    Russian money should be exchanged in accordance with next rate: 30 kopeyek (cents) for 1 krone.

    Thank for your work.

    Now if we could get some measurable productivity out of …

    I will not get into details, but I learned from reliable sources that all
    information about evils of Yanukovich is not accurate. I am not saying he
    is good guy, but the evil picture said by protestors is not completely
    true and accurate picture of him nor his motives.

    Grasp the old adage that all that glistens is not gold. Nor is all that is painted
    in hell the work of the devil.

    It is easy to get caught up in excitement of times that many issues of Ukraine
    will be addressed. However, a critical and true analysis of details is important.

    And what will happen if Russia gets partition into Eastern and Western halves,
    understand the concept of divide and conquer. Maybe it will wind up being
    conquering both?

    In the area of Rivne, Lviv, IvanoFransk there is a genetic part to the population.
    Believe what I have seen is that DNA that will not allow enslavement keeps
    continuing on. That DNA used to continue to the Ural mountains, however, the
    Soviets created the Holodomor to get rid of freedom loving humans.

    It is not the water, land or air, rather a DNA heritage that fights oppression until
    there are non left to fight…

    Humanity and the world will be less if more are subjugated to Marxism and Statism.

    Fighting to the death is not the answer.

    Again, thank you for translation.


    Sun Tzu, The Art of War – 500 B. C.
    All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we
    must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive;
    when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are away; when
    far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to
    entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.
    There is no instance of a country having been benefited from prolonged
    warfare. It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils
    of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying
    it on.
    Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.

    Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy’s plans.
    In all fighting, the direct method may be used for joining battle, but
    indirect methods will be needed in order to secure victory.
