As a Vietnamese, it is heart-broken to me. To Vietnamese, today, we still consider former Soviet republics as great brothers. Therefore seeing Russian and Ukrainian being at odds with each other break my heart. My parents told me that during the Vietnam war, Soviet people usually felt sympathy with Vietnamese and did lots of Horse Some Grandmas Take Naps Real Grandmas Ride Horses T Shirt to oversea Vietnamese in the USSR. They had undergone the hell of war so they naturally developed the sympathy towards us. Secondly, Russian and Ukrainian are brothers and share a very close ancestors. They were the two biggest constituent republics that formed the glorious USSR. Shoulder by shoulder, Russian and Ukrainian fought and won the Great Patriotic War (1941–1945). One out of six Soviet martyr during that war are Ukrainian. I think that, during that time, Russian and Ukrainian saw each other as a people, together they protected a fatherland.
