One of my friend living in the USA, doing quite well who studied in Russia and migrated send me following; 

The Communist regime gave us an education and some of us served in our the  country for  few years and some left the country for greener pastures 

Sine left the country some  returned back to give something back to my motherland 


, it was 75 years ago in the very late evening of May 8th the Soviets defeated Nazi Germany. 

Thanks to this great victory I was able to make a bunch of lifelong friends like you. 

I want to offer my humble gratitude to the 11 million-plus Soviet Soldiers (27 million casualties)who perished in this brutal war and also, to the soviet farmers, peasants, factory workers and the hard-working Soviet citizens who sacrificed their lives to rebuild the country and then provide people like us with the opportunity to succeed in our lives. 😊 🌹



We have got our freedom or some call it independence from the crutches of British 72 years back. If one compares the two countries despite the size, we should be wondering why we are in such a dire straights

We are also a multi-ethnic society and with different resources, but we have failed to achieve any development since that time in comparison.

Where did we go wrong?

We went wrong because the leaders we had for the last seven decades with no vision for the future, and they ruled  with nonlove to the country

Hopefully, during this decade we can be prosperous if the current leader decides  to get away from personal or family agendas and decide to govern with patriotism and compassion for the poor class
