      Not even Hitler brought the Romanians so far to the East.
      They are some poor useful idy0ts there, near other many European contingents, like all troops sent by VASSAL NATO countries in that BS called NATO.
      NATO? That is just a “Western Warsaw-Pact”, where Moscow is called now Washington.
