      Pokerstrategy is not a political organization, nor is it run by a single person who calls all the shots. While the CEO may have one opinion on the subject matter, the opinions of different staff members may potentially vary wildly on this. Are you sure this is an appropriate thing to ask?

      I say let's keep politics out of the poker room.

      I don't want to discuss with you. I and other ukrainian users just want to know opinion of Poker Strategy direction.
      P.S. Political forum at russianspeaking community.

      occupation is not politics! Do you think that world war 2 was also just politics?

      Don't think that ps as a group will announce some kind of opinion of this of situation, they haven't in history mentioned any other non poker related event's in such scale an possibly wont do it now also.

      Having said that, I believe that 90% of this community understands that that is wrong in any possible way, other 10 % users may disagree, but depends on brainwash campaign over 15 years, u really can't blame so much.

      Yeah defo not the place for such things imo, I'm from Israel and I would not like to see some discussions and taking sides in the forums where I discuss poker mostly and not stuff like that
