The seventh year continues the phase of open aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine in the context of the civilization war of the Kremlin (East) against the EU (West). And the seventh year cannot but be surprised at the naivety of those against whom aggression or abuse is carried out. It is not a mystery that Vladimir Putin wants to destroy the European Union by reviving the Moscow Empire on the territory of the former USSR, destroying all those who are ready to confront it – the Baltic countries, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Moldova. As for others, perhaps they will not resist very much (Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tadzhikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan), but are they so interesting for the Kremlin as those in West?
In the modern Moscow region, once again awarded the medals “For the Return of Crimea”1. However, the true value of such things is spelled out in the “Russian rubles” on the website “World of Faleristics”2. Here, in particular, we will see that each medal or difference has its own price. For example, the “Medal of 5 Years of the Reunion of Crimea with Russia (2014-2019)” is estimated at 499 rubles, or 167 UAH, or almost 6 US dollars, or 5 Euros.
