wh1tequarkDocScrutinizer05: http://top.rbc.ru/incidents/25/08/2014/944909.shtml15:22
wh1tequarkthis makes me sad15:22
DocScrutinizer05what exactly?15:56
DocScrutinizer05https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=de&sl=ru&tl=de&u=http%3A%2F%2Ftop.rbc.ru%2Fincidents%2F25%2F08%2F2014%2F944909.shtml  is pretty hard to parse and get the actual meaning15:57
DocScrutinizer05sounds like Putin continues his path towards a new cold war15:57
DocScrutinizer05>>  "Wir wollen nicht die Mühe sie. Die Tatsache, dass sie ihre Kämpfer zu erhöhen, wenn auch steigen, werden wir vorbeigehen. Wir wissen nicht stört sie, keine Probleme machen " <<  is quite funny and not clear what exactly the guy said16:04
wpwraka politician ? nothing then ;-)16:05
Action: DocScrutinizer05 feels headache from trying to understand that google translation16:10
DocScrutinizer05(not only the last part I quoted)16:10
DocScrutinizer05it seems like showing up here that google can't use EU parliament protocols to train their translator's russian capabilities16:11
DocScrutinizer05and obviously russian grammar is quite different to anything like English or German16:12
whitequa1kDocScrutinizer05: RU routinely invades into airspace of EU countries16:55
whitequa1kbasically, yes16:55
