France or Britain most likely.
Some days you get the Bear, some dys the Bear gets you.” Old Russian proverb.
Those Muslims who deliberately provoke the Russian Bear often have a ‘Bad Hair Day’ - seems the view from under the Bear IS full of hair, Bear hair.
Russia has had to learn how to suppress Muslims for many centuries. Soon, we will drop the PC facade and play Cowboys & Muslims.
I’m sure he will end up in England.
Americans should get ready.
It’s coming here with the liberals.
