Yeah, it's really fucking depressing. I believe the name 'Makhno' gets bandied about in all sorts of inappropriate ways in Ukraine, with Nestor or Batko Makhno on various commodities. I believe even the nationalists claim him as one of theirs as well.

To be fair, only spades are Makhnovist. The hearts are Bolshevik with Trotsky as King, the other suits are clubs Denikin and diamonds is Skoropadskyi. I really want a pack of those embarrassed

That's amazing hair!

I mean... Look at it! I'm guessing he didn't have the growth to best Kropotkin in the beard area so he came right back with that shockingly voluminous wave.

You reckon Makhno looks good - you want to see his dancer mate Bezski.
