Cullings, something most people only think about when thinking of anything else then humans, yet, it has happened to us many times.
Yet while too many do not notice, we segregate, we cull, time and time again, as we have done throughout our history.
These cullings have lead up to the mass culling and extermination of Jews during the second world war, bosniaks at the Srebrenica massacre and too many other examples.

I always have segregated myself of others, made it pretty clear that I am different, and in the case of these cullings to hit just 1 country, my country, I would be a target…
It is like we already do by just the word refugee, like the words Syrian refugees, while they are people, just people, just like you.
And while we are not aware, one day there will be someone who will take advantage of this…
Like all genocides in history have shown, we are not just the victims, we are the causers and the executors…

My luck at being adopted is not just that I have now a family, I have a belonging and protectors.
Ukraine has never actually been my country, in case of any sort of culling, I would have been the victim.
Born to a Polish mother, Russian father, I have never been a child of Ukraine…
I would be nothing to the Ukrainian government, and what people do not know, I know it is not just “would”, it is that I “was” nothing to the Ukrainian government…

My Ukrainian friends often ask me how I can be supportive to the Ukrainian independence, recognizing Crimea AND Donbas being a part of Ukraine, but still live happily at Russia.
That is because I know I am Ukrainian, as that is the country I was born at, but can not hate another country when my birth country Ukraine has never seen me as a full Ukrainian.
The Ukrainian governmental system rightly being called by just the word Ukraine…
As that is the thing many still have not yet realized, the fact that governments and pairlements have complete power over countries,
which also means we actually live in a dictatorship system… WORLDWIDE!
Representative democracy, psephocracy or as we all just say, democracy, has taken away our actual rights as citizens, even if we can make some minor changes.
As that is what we have at most, minor changes, as we can in most cases not disband the current government, let alone remove the whole government system.
We once have given the keys away of our countries, and we are in fact not able to come inside our own countries, our own decisions…

During me living at Donetsk during the Ukrainian conflict, I learned something, something many will not learn in a lifetime.
I learned that I had no friends, only enemies.
The Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian army were not my friends, which they have actually shown by letting it escalate this much,
that about 2 years later Crimea has basically become Russia and Donbas is close to doing the same…
And yet what for? The so-called fact of Ukraine becoming more European?
It is kind of sickening people actually believe any of it, as we might want to remember that about 25 to 50% of Russia is Europe…
Yes, Russia is Europe, just like Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and even a part of Kazakhstan…
All of them often forgotten to be Europe, with them being called Eurasia.

Yet, names like Eurasia are understandable…
Yes, they are, as basically, the continents are not actually Northern America, Southern America, Europe, Asia, Africa, The Midle East and Oceania.
It are Americas/America, Afro-Eurasia and Oceania.(Antartica being unknown if it is rightly called an continent)
3 continents, as it basically are 3 pieces of Earth within a very large amount of water…

So to me it is simple, Ukraine already is Europe, Russia already is Europe, the European Union is a way of bringing it together, what is the real problem?
Well, there actually points that I could give both sides a bit of recognition.
The European Union WAS the best way for Europe to unite as 1, stand against other super powers like Russia and the USA.
However, the European Union however at the same still has the problems regarding their political influence, causing currently laws at the EU-countries that some are kind of silly to not made at their own country, but instead by something as big as the European Union.

Yet, what does it actually even matter when it comes to Eastern Ukraine?
That is something I have not understood from day 1 myself.
Russia basically would never take just Donbas, there are literally no advantages for Russia to do so when you compare it to the downsides.
Independent Donbas is not a region that could keep up alone, which has already been shown since the start of the Ukrainian conflict.
In basics, the remainder of Ukraine should have not that much care when I am really honest, as eventually they will have to crawl back.
Yet, Ukraine did, and now Ukraine is close to a full-blown war with Russia, with Russia actually readying forces with probably Ukraine as their target.
The causer being no longer actually rightly to be called Russia, they have made no great mistake by placing the corrupt Yanukovych, as now Ukraine can be seen as aggressor just as well…
Eventually, Ukraine has not played their cards well, while Russia has had to do 1 thing, play their tricks and wait afterwards…

Still, what have we actually even become as humanity?
We have become fighting over words like nationality, where just living at another country can make you a bad persn.
Words that do not end at what we can actually see, but also by status.
That we can get hurt for just the fact that we do not equal that pretty image of having some kind of normal life.
Differences being more important than who we actually truly are…

Yet do these so-called differences make any difference?
Well, they do, that I can not actually deny.
Yep, the fact I was abandoned and grew up mostly being orphaned has given me the strength to fight my own battles, make my own decisions, know what I want.
That is a difference that made a difference.
As for education and all those other examples you could name?
I reach perfect scores at school, top graded of my classes, care for others more than most others and would never hurt anyone.
*Sarcasm* Yep, differences are obviously really bad. *Sarcasm*

Maybe it is time for humanity to realize that we should not only look at others, not only at ourselves, but all around us.
As eventually that is always unseen, what happens after what we have done and that we are all the cause of it happening…
