Now, I would not call this friendly relations between so called brotherly countries. When things don't go Russia's way, they like to resort to threats. With Putin, it was a given, but reigning beauty queen Sergei Ivanov, has kept up with his compatriots wishes. So do we (Ukraine) join NATO, or do give in to the threats being issued whenever it does not satisfy Russia' needs, at the same time to to keep Ukraine subservient and tolling the line of the Kremlin? What will be the next threat, starving out the KULAKS as in 1932-1933 Holodomor? Makes you wonder?
