"Excellent" story. My good friend - a journalist from Austria - was traveling through Transcarpathia. Near Mukachevo he was stopped at checkpoint manned by the traffic police, National Guard, the Right Sector. They demanded 70 euros, threatened with force, though he is not a separatist, and absolutely on the contrary - he wrote about the Maidan and now writes about the ATO. The patriots let the European go for thirty euro. Well, the situation is quite common really. But, firstly, it is perceived differently when you know the person very well, and secondly, I am really tired of blasphemy smartly combined with patriotic fervor. I am almost 100% sure that someone from that checkpoint was on the Maidan. Or maybe it is because of Russian language again? Russian television and Kobzon with Tabakov? Or an unfortunate mistake during the combat against smuggling and corruption?".
