Snow Queen Tymoshenko Celebrates New Year on Maidan

She wants to rekindle the honeymoon spirit of 2005.



PM/presidential candidate Tymoshenko: Five, four, three, two, one, start! Hahaha! [fireworks explode as everyone sings Ukraine's anthem]


We celebrated New Year 2005 with her and Yushchenko on Maidan — after the Orange Revolution — so in love with everything they promised.

Now, what did we achieve in 2009?


We lost 12% of our GDP. No, you don’t want to mention that if you’re a PM who’s running for president.



PM/presidential candidate Tymoshenko: One more thing, my darlings: We can and should take pride in the fact that it was in 2009 that more babies were born in Ukraine than ever since independence! And it’s your joint effort! [giggles] Our joint effort! Because if the country starts setting records in giving birth to Ukrainians, it means we’re really doing fine.


So delayed childbearing means *we’re really doing fine*?

How many more delayed births does it take to stem depopulation and reproduce the almost 7 million people we’ve lost?

Happy New Year, Taras!
By the way, you raise very interesting questions here. Will they be answered some day? We can only hope...

Merry Ukrainian Christmas:)!


Gabriela,

I think I owe Ukraine my fair share of the answers:)
