Moskva means Moscow. The Russian freaking FLAGSHIP in flames

apparently is named for Moscow, the capital. Omen? Would be good.

Reports still to be confirmed. But so far lots of reports saying the freaking FLAGSHIP of the Republican Party, ooops, my bad, I mean the Russian Butchery Machine, is in flames.
