I saw this on FB:

When I was growing up in the 1960s I asked my Aunts what was the difference between Russians and Ukrainians. Of course, my Aunts had only our local (but ubiquitous) Ukrainian Nationalists in mind when they emphatically stated, “We don’t hate other people. We’re Christians and we love them. Ukrainians (they meant the Nationalists) only like themselves and hate others, especially, Blacks, Jews, and Russians”. I’ve grown up… I understand that, now…

I need add nothing…
