When Constantinople fell to Ottoman invaders in the 15th century, the Orthodox Church in Moscow asserted itself as the heir apparent for the only remaining “true” Christian church in the world, bringing Orthodox parishes in Ukraine under its complete jurisdiction.
Ukraine just won Eurovision, to nobody’s surprise. They could’ve sent up a kid singing Mary Has A Little Lamb and they would’ve won. I would’ve voted for them. I actually don’t hate their song, either, which is rare for a Eurovision song for me.
My guts turn when I hear about the principles and respect for territorial integrity. They (the Western countries) ask us to respect someone’s integrity, and what about ours? The Serbian leader also questioned why, if Russia is really committing terrible crimes in Ukraine, NATO is not bombing it as it did in former Yugoslavia in 1999.
Obviously, Yugoslavia has no territorial integrity.
