I pretty much agree with all that you said, and my comments were not so much anti Russian as there were anti-ignorant American. I would however disagree with your comments when you said that: "I have never heard a Ukrainian or Russian professional slagging off the other nationality. Mutual respect. I have had a lot of dealings with both sides!" I know for a fact that in business, at least in Ukraine unless you speak russian, and do not show that you are Ukrainian you will not get very far, and I have had that discussion here before, but I seem to be in a minority here on this forum, as I am one of the few Ukes on here, and many russians on this forum take offence to me pointing out how badly their nation treats mine when it wants to show some of it's own independance and strength. I understand the relationship that exists between these countries, and I am all for Interdependance, I am against domination, redicule, and persecution, just because country wants it;s own language, and real Independance.
