    Such a terrible tragedy.. and it goes on year after year
    How many of our young heroes are killed on the front lines all the time, and all we hear from Defense Ministry are condolences.
    It reminds me the front line between Soviets and Germans in the June 1941.
    Nazis were shooting border guards while Stalin was imposing silence, hoping it would avoid the war.
    Everyone knows what happened next.
