      You can take him with you to Russia. We will be very grateful. And stay there.

    Russia, Belarus, Ukraine etc. are behind the curtains party to Libyan Crises. They are feeding Gaddafi at regular intervals with weapons. He is using looted money to Buy the weapons and kill Libyan children…Shame, these former Soviet states claim to be “Die-hard” friends of India but they help Pakistan indirectly using China. Russian leadership is also amassing huge wealth from Crude & Weapons
