Politspoofs from Obozrevatel

Yushchenko, Tymoshenko, Yanukovych, Firtash, Boiko, Lyovochkin, Putin, Medvedev, gas, the $5B loan... It's all in there!

Enjoy these political spoofs,
brought to you by Obozrevatel and based on Nu, pogodi! (Well, Just You Wait!), the Soviet equivalent of Tom and Jerry.

My favorite line (translation mine):

Yushchenko: Країну ми прокутім/This country we'll be looting
Tymoshenko: Бабла одолжит Путин/We'll get the dough from Putin
Yanukovych: Он воздух портит, выпуская газ/He spoils the air with his gas

A new price on Russian gas for Ukraine is about $230 for thousand cubic meters. Nobody will say more precisely today. A word «about» is a new know-how of the Ukrainian government, that hides the unwillingness of Julia Volodimirivna to acknowledge that she handed us to Russia.

During the first four months we will pay $360 for gas. And that is exactly twice as high, than paid until now. And Timoshenko’s «about» means a kind of an average annual price. Such a convinient gap : nobody knows its size, so no one will notice, someone will grab a piece of pie from there.

I, too, find it hard to believe Tymoshenko’s numbers.

Btw, she wants the SBU to keep an eye on the Internet.
