    1. It is emotional, but it is also very funny. The quote was by Alexei who is Ukrainian and acts as a translator. While what he says is technically correct, he keeps using the wrong words for the context. He’d says “dispersing currency” instead of “spending money “. As someone who learned English as a second language, I can totally understand. It takes about 20 pages to really get your head around but after that it’s a great read!
