Ukrainians and the "Maidan of Foreign Affairs" congratulates you on your birthday and would like to remind you: All empires die. However, they all die in different ways.
Some break down long and relatively peaceful. Others — fast and bloody. Some dictators flee like Idi Amin of Uganda and Mobutu Sese Seko from Congo. Others die sometimes painful, as Mussolini and Gaddafi.
So what fate you choose by yourself?
