After having tried to learn Russian for over 20 years, and having translated over 600 Russian texts from Russian to French on this very site (songs, poetry, chastushki and all kinds of texts), I have deleted nearly 100 % of that work and shall never translate from Russian again.
Not only do I find ignoble the Russian dictator and his perpetual gross lies, but I’m also completely discouraged by the attitude of Russian people : Putler’s supporters, cowards, gullible or fanatics, anyway, deep down all very happy that this is happening to 'xoxly' and not to them. A few thousands are protesting, when over 140 millions of them are rejoicing, shouting ‘Long live Holy Russia’ or just feigning to have noticed nothing. This is utterly disgusting.
We probably would do the same in France. The difference is that we have (so far) no French Hitler to reign over us, as they have.
Shame on Russia. Shame on Russians.
