"It's "fluffy" out, we won't raise people today, but the nets were told to put them up. Hey Russians, you guys have a "good" fucking president. "Supported", well done. I hope you wake up a sense of brotherhood there and eat him or burn him along with your Kremlin," the athlete recorded a video in the mountains.
