Whose side are you on?

Re: John Gleeson column (Coast Reporter, April 11).

Boy has John Gleeson got it in for the Ukrainians.

As I read his column from last week's newspaper, seven million Ukrainians had been starved to death in the early 1930s under Stalin.

Stalin, if I read correctly, not the Russians and then the horror stories from the elderly woman who told about the Soviet soldiers who entered their farmhouse and did evil things. Soviet soldiers, I read again, not Russian soldiers.

Now it's the German invasion of Ukraine in the Second World War. More than a few Ukrainians "willing and anxious to carry the Nazi flag."

Fast forward and now it's the Neo-Nazis who have taken over the Ukraine. And the Russians have been "measured and cool headed in its response to this dangerous provocation by the U.S. and its NATO friends."

Whose side is John Gleeson on anyway? Sounds like Putin's side.

As a veteran of the Second World War, it reminds me of Hitler's propagandist, Goebbels.
