A sad story by an ethnically Russian guy living in Ukraine.
He also includes these words of wisdom about why any real and vibrant culture of democracy will include some unpleasant people saying unpleasant things:
“Do I find any Ukrainian politicians likable?
“I like the fact they exist and they are at each other’s throats. As long as there is a real political struggle, adversarial decision-making, there is a chance things will develop.
“Imagine: people shit every day. Do I find the asshole likable because it does this? No, but I’m really glad it exists.”
