Radicals shooting at people in Odessa’s burning building caught on tape
Plevniev is a dirty lapdog, he avoids laying blame on the people that set the building on fire and tlhose who support them (Kiev). Plevniev, you do NOT represent Bulgarians, you are just a slut obeying your western masters, you are a complete disgrace, you would sell out the country to Turkey if Washington told you to and you would somehow try to justify it.
