Overall, this was obviously fun.
1. The opportunity is threatened by the military for the acquisition of practical experience in the fight against the epidemic in a new area. The military eat pragmatists, they even consider me the situation with the epidemic as a training ground for practical experience. A poetic, bad. Syria from the Ministry of Defense of the RF has also been taken into consideration, also in this sense.
2. A purely humanitarian reason to help the victims proclaimed by countries like China, Cuba, Venezuela. Therefore, it is my duty to focus on the fact that I am living in these countries, and not on the behavior of the monster, where history with the trial and fate of the masters in other countries has been particularly unpleasant.
3. Political subtitles: by providing assistance to Italy, the Russian Federation continues to “play in contrast”, fueling the Italian border in relation to the European regulatory policy against Russia. Of course, this assistance will increase the population of the Russian Federation in Italy (without the higher cost) and strengthen the position of those forces that support the revocation of the tax. “The attempt is not torture.” I do not believe faithfully that Italy is about to revoke the law, but who knows.
