Okay, this makes no sense. She says she is hurting for her country of Russia. And that causes her to spray paint a car and a sidewalk? WTF? Someone ought to refer her to a community mental health center so she can talk to someone. What a dip.

If she is hurting for her country, which is understandable given the brute show of force going on over there, she might have chosen to use her artistic talents to create a poster that she could protest with as that is still legal here last time I checked....
