    With all these information and natural resources makes USA hate Russia.
    Russia Federation suppose try let the world in general to know the true Russian story or history like this page. Let any other President of Russia follow the foot step of President Putin wherever He stop, no changing. Again at less let there be a free visa to Russia for some Blacks in a way like,’Russia Visa Lottery’ for some less privilege countries, such as North Africa, West Africa and so on.
    Finally, am really in love with Russians and being a fellow of International Friends of Russia, am well pleased with them, people that love their Mother Land more than anything or anywhere.

    More Love, Victory & Joy to all Russians.
