When Yushchenko called her “bum,” he meant her incredibly humble tax returns.
When she returned the courtesy, she used the word tyrit (тырить — Russian slang/Putin-speak for steal).
Putin uses tyrit to describe what he calls Ukraine’s theft of Russian gas — every time Gazprom cuts off gas supplies.
PM Yulia Tymoshenko: I was surprised when I saw in the President’s tax returns some 13 hectares [32 acres] of newly acquired land in Bezradychi, Kyiv. I, too, think that, perhaps compared to the President, I look like a bum, because I haven’t snitched a single plot of government land while working as Prime Minister.
What about your associates? What about buying Tamiflu from that quadruple-charging intermediary that caused shortages and contributed to deaths?
I voted for you three times: in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Why can’t you say “I’m not a crook” without lapsing into Putinese: dictatorship of law, tyrit, what’s next?
