Really, Vladimir, at least try to act like you're sorry!

For all you budding actors out there, here's how NOT to look when talking about how you are indirectly responsible for the atrocious murder of 298 innocent people…unless, of course, you're deliberately going for completely disinterested/utterly insincere/I don't give a shit about the people who are dead and my involvement in it all.

For all those studying psychology and international politics, it is also a good example of the application of 'Putin's Law No.818' viz: if it happens in your country, then it must be your fault (and, of course, it has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that I've been trying to de-stabilise that country for months by annexing part of it and then supplying Separatists with all manner of ridiculously dangerous
weapons, such as anti-aircraft missiles that are capable of blowing up airliners!)

Truly, just when you think this world of ours can't get any more fucked-up than it already is, something happens to remind you that, no matter how depraved certain members of humanity appear to be, there's always someone, such as good old Vladimir, prepared to plumb new depths.
