The UPA-DUPA loser morons are ready for yet another arse whooping, heh, heh, heh:D

These idiots would be considered Untermenschen by the nazis, yet they celebrate the nazis' attempt to turn them into slaves and murderers. Such bydlo! Perhaps they are Untermenschen? The mixture of bandera flags and neo-nazi flags suggests these people don't know the difference and hence their own history. Morons, absolute moron!
