Reporter: You didn’t respond to Putin when he offended our president. Any regrets?
Tymoshenko [full uninterrupted quote]: Dear friends, how did he offend anyone? I don’t get it. You know, I’ll tell you what. All politicians — no matter what country they live in — they have their own relations. Always. Those are absolutely the same people as any others. And when politicians have sympathies or antipathies, one way or the other, it gets vented from them. It gets vend...vented from Viktor Andriyovych [Yushchenko], it gets vented from Putin, it gets vented from me. But I want to tell you that I never associate — never — a politician with the country. The country is a different animal. And as for the conversation with Putin and the press conference, to be honest, it wasn’t his words I was entertained by. And if you remember, I said a different thing. I said that, as a woman, I sometimes feel like eating my tie, but, thank God, I don’t have one. Hahaha!
Of course, she wasn’t laughing at Putin’s jokes. You can re-read her chuckle-fest, chapter and verse.
Of course, she never equated herself with Ukraine. Never! Not even in her “They’re talking. She’s working./She’s working. She’s Ukraine!” slogans!
She never spent a dime of IMF money except on the economy. She never had any oligarchs in her party. She can honestly explain everything, can’t she?
