This post is why I support the transition from a nation-centric European order to a Union-centric one. National identity should be no more - and no less, of course - relevant than regional identity.
You wot? Fourth Reich will never succeed in removing patriotism. Poland stronk, world we war yuo.

In all seriousness it would actually help out Greece a fair bit yeah
That is an understatement.  Without a trade surplus the money simply can not be repaid.
What if the Troika just wrote off all of Greece's debts?

I wonder if any of you guys are getting paid for these arguments.
I doubt that semi-obscure forums are covered up by Russian troll payment scheme... and these are the only places where I'm active. So even if I wanted to (and I don't), I wouldn't be able to.

Much more informative interview on Spiegel Online.

Apparently the propaganda war is big on Facebook, Twitter and Livejournal.

You know, in some comment thread somewhere there must be an argument in which all participants are on the payroll of different nation states.

Hell, I'd expect the payrolled people to make secret agreements with payrolled people from the other side for mutual profit, if they get paid for posting activity. The end result would be like an Internet theater, with everyone playing their role from a script.

That assumes rough parity which generally does not exist.

Oh, that happens on zeit.de all the time. The comment section there is horrible.

I was recently in Russia and was greeted by this in their airport (I didn't take a picture just found it later online)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

What am i missing here? Is it a protest or is it official and Russians actually believe that's a good P.R?

Some businessmen are trying to make money off the "polite people" meme. But of course, it's Russia, a totalitarian country where not a single bear can shit in the woods without a direct executive order from Putin, so it's clearly an evil plot of the Bloody Regime. :P

It's an ad of a company called "Русский Торговый Двор" that apparently sells military souvenirs and memorabilia. Their official site says they're a "trade and exhibition space for Russian designers, craftsmen and artists".

"Polite people" meme is very good P.R. in Russia, yes. We're militaristic like that.
