!! OMG, Russia owns Iceland !!

After Great Britain and the rest of Europe refused to help bail out Iceland, whose debts totalled more than 12 times what the government was capable of repaying, the nation turned to mean old Russia for a $5.4 billion loan. I can only imagine what the terms of the loan were, but don't be surprised if everyone is speaking Russian the next time you go to Reykjavik.

You don´t know anything. After all of our "friendly" nations denied us of help, even though we have helped them in the past. Like Britain, in world war2, our fishermen came to rescue britain with fish when the country had nearly any food and we saved many british people and soldiers with that and many Icelandic sailors were killed and ships were lost. And we got almost nothing in return. That was ok, becouse we help our friends in need. And we have never had any bad feelings about russia, in the cod war with britain, the british government made law that no country could trade with us. But russia saved us and let us trade our fish and wool against oil, cars and many neccesary things, and they were one of few nations to declear our independence. (Britain and usa were against it, and many more). This loan is only good will to an old friend that has been saved more than once by the russians, no strings attached. p.s. This bullshit that primeminester brownnose said that we are bankrupt and were not going to pay our commitments was a lie. We and our officials have never said that we´re not going to pay. People are either ignorant or just evil against us, a frindly nation in a crisis.

Just one problem:
The picture features SWEDISH currency and a receipt written in SWEDISH.
