She's not sitting on tissue guys, that's the inner part of her dress scrunched up underneath her, the print was only on the outside. Although zooming in was a bad idea, you can see the outline of EVERYTHING through those panties ick

it was artificially created in 1991. but in the country - most if not many people speak russian and are russian. in fact, i've seen them - proud to be ucrainian but speaking to each other in russian, not ucrainian. what kind of country prefers to speak among each other a foreign language to their own. also - many,many of the citizen of this country still have in their mind that they are russians. they were russians until 1991 when they were told that their birthplace will now be a different country. there are several artificially created countires in europe where it's citizens were born and raised in one country but for political reason their motherland was renamed to be a different country.

Wow...I have never read so many disinformation in one post.

I don't know what you think was 'artificially created' in 1991 but it sure wasn't the Ukraine. The Ukraine is essentially the successor of the great Grandduchy of Kiev. Later, it was often dominated or divided by foreign troops and nations; from Lithuania to the Austrian-Hungarian empire and the Ottoman Empire.
In the 19th centrury it was divided between Russia (the eastern part) and Austria-Hungary (the western part) and this division is the reason why the people in the east and west of the country have such different views and why people in the east want to be part of Russia. Because for over 200 years now, during the Russian time and when the Ukraine was unvoluntarily incorporated by the USSR in 1921, Russians were moved to the country to 'russify' is.

As for the language-issue: during the years of the USSR all people learned Russian, like a lingua franca, and often the use of a local language of dialect of that language was forbidden or discouraged. As a result, there are entire generations who are indeed more fluent in Russian than in Ukrainian but not by a choice of themselves.

The only part that was articifial was the fact that the Crimea was Ukranian, that was the result of a decision made in 1954 by Nikita Krushev. But that still doesn't give Putin the right to just seize the territory. The borders of both the Ukraine (including the Crimea) and Russia were fixed and agreed upon when the USSR dismantled and a number of treaties between the countries were closed and agreed upon. These treaties were agreed upon by the governments and parliaments of all states involved and that made them a fait accompli. And every new president of Russia has to abide by them.

As for the other artificial countries...the fact that borders are re-drawn, with consent of parliaments and the people (like in the division of Czechoslovakia) or to honour the different histories of a nation (like in former Yugoslavia...Catholic Slovenia is entirely different from orthodox Serbia f.e) hardly makes them 'artificial'. The creation of a massive empire like Austria-Hungary with many different people speaking up to 20 different languages was far more artificial than the creation of nation states.

Putin isn't initmidated by anyone. That guy has such a big ego (to compensate for his size I guess).

I wonder what George Bush thinks of Putin now...Mr. "I found him very straightforward and trustworthy".  laugh

I wonder how long her past can stay bottled up like this.

Whne you look at her behavior such as:

Refusing to work
Acting like she's never drunk alcohol
Pretends to know nothing of the world (or of reality)
Hyper-PR that emphasizes how modest she is

You can tell it's largely reactive; she keeps things coming all the time, about how she's not a fashion freak, how she wears a much more modest dress, basically she is marketed as everything that all young women who want to be considered ladies should aspire to.

Most women wiht racy lives often do this, wear silk before marriage, but then cotton later and end up looking dowdy and non-sexy as much as possible. I think that at some point her antics as part of an all female crew and 'friendship' with Emma Sayles will reveal more, just need the right source.

Who knows what the people of Ukraine think; what irritates is how she toadies to Putin so obviously and yet, she's determined to foist a monarchy with her at the head of it.

A representative of her said that all Russians are responsible for the death of the Imperial Family, laying a guilt trip on Russians even today.

She's loathed by the other Romanovs and she's the only one promoting herself as rightful claimant; of course, Russians would decide this.

As for Putin, I believe he's going to be the one deciding to have himself crowned as Tsar. I'm surprised Maria doesn't marry Putin herself, with her son as heir.

No way is Maria some benign woman, she's been actively promoting herself in Russia, the woman is determined.

Now, the rest of the Romanovs support Rostislav as Heir and future Head of House; Grand Duke Cyril, after the Revolution, announced that (this was after the death of the Empress Dowager) he was now Head of the House of Romanov. Apparently, even while Nicholas and Alexandra were reigning, the Vladimir branch was actively scheming against the ruling couple.

The idea floating around was that Nicholas and Alexandra would be deposed, with the Vladimirs ruling as Regent over the Throne while Alexei (son and Heir) was a minor. Of course, full usurpation was on their ambitious minds.

Think of the Vladimirs as the Russian equivalent of the Duke of Orleans; the Duke supported the overthrow of the monarchy during the French Revolution; predictably, the Duke himself ended up guillotined by the very revolutionaries he had nurtured in his own palace at the Luxembourg. Cyril, the head of the Vladimir branch in fact pledged support to the Reds, flew the Bolshevik flag over his palace, and withdrew the soldiers who were under his command, the very troops who were guarding the Imperial Family, leaving the entire Imperial Family unprotected. Yes, he was that opportunistic and low.

Even when Marie (the Empress Dowager) was alive, Cyril tried at times to announce himself as Heir and future Head of the House of Romanov; he barely waited until the Dowager Empress was dead and then was vociferous against the idea that any of the Imperial Family had survived.

Putin isn't intimidated by Obama and I do not believe that Putin is going to back down unless something VERY lucky happens.

Harry might be hung over.  Cool
I believe that she needs his attention to feel alive as odd as that sounds. As others have said before, her messing up and exposing herself gets her attention from Wills whether it's him being ticked off with her or they have to do PDA for pr like today. I believe that she doesn't care what way Wills gives her attention as long as he's not indifferent, imo.
