Rescue Raid Gone Awry

We didn’t understand why some 32 SWAT officers were invited, to put it mildly, for a "talk" with three MPs, as a result of which MP Lukyanov’s car, with Lukyanov inside, was displaced. When I came up and said, “What are you doing? There’s a live human being in that car,” for some reason, they lost composure and dropped it. And it so happened that they dropped it on my leg.

— MP and former Emergency Management Minister Nestor Shufrych, PRU recapturing his Friday “free Rudy” experience outside the private clinic Borys.

Nestor, you know more about emergencies that I do. Therefore, let me keep my pep talk simple and stupid: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. My high-octane cheerleader songbook of choice would be:

Tatu “Not Gonna Get Us”
Chip’n’Dale Rescue Rangers Theme
Meat Loaf “I’d Lie for You (And That’s the Truth)”

No need for "Free Rudy" raid.

Kyiv Appeal Court Releases Rudkovskyi From Custody

and in time for Feb. 20th festivities ---- "The final part of Miss Ukraine Universe will take place on February 20 in the capital “Alta-Ekspo”, where beauty Naomi Campbell will choose the most beautiful Ukrainian girl. Top model has to come to Kyiv on the day of the contest."

Like I said, not a single high-profile suspect has ever done jail time in Ukraine. So why should Rudkovsky be any different? Besides, he can’t miss that “Miss Ukraine” pageant!

I love the way UNIAN misspelled Naomi Campbell, not to mention Donald Trump:)))

I think LEvko is correct in Rudkovsky facing heat when so many do it and get away with it but I was hoping that change was underway. Oh well you were right - Kolesnikov all over again and maybe in future an award.

What did I tell you?:)

Rudy will get his medal of honor for securing stability in the spending of government funds.

Run Rudy, run Rudy, run Rudy, run Rudy, run!
