I"m more comfortable with that then the USA's and UK's support for al-Queda affiliated "moderate" rebels.

Russia must be proud of its early cosmonauts and how you led the space race in tbe early years. With space exploration in mind, do the Russian people feel America may have fabricated the moon landing? This is not something I believe myself but a minority in the west do.

In the West we have many programmes like Ancient Aliens which build on Erich Von Daniken's Chariot of the God's theory of aliens visiting Earth in the distant past and helping to shape early man. Are these ideas talked abut in Russia? Is there a Russian equivalent of Roswell where many believe alien lifeforms crashed shortly after WW11?

Thank you.

Meetings beat, but riots weren't.
These people shout that in Russia is bad, but for improvement do nothing.

I know that in Luhansk and Donetsk there are mercenaries, but there are no Russian military there.

Does Russia have it's own national cheese, what type of cheese is it and what's the Russian attitude towards cheese and dairy based snacks generally?

Yes. Russian Roswell is Kapustin Yar. Jon Alon Walz shoot film "Russian Roswell".

Now about Ancient Aliens. The Russian scientists and geographers investigate the Russian North. They have versions about Hyperborea. For example, the Kola Peninsula has a pyramid and a sphinx which is more ancient Egyptian.
