From “The Party That Builds”...
Watch Vice PM Borys Kolesnikov test-drive a Lviv bus.
Looking good, isn't he?
Too bad he didn’t notice that highway patrol car parked on the roadside.
Voice from the bus: “It’s OK! It’s OK! Nothing will happen to that cops’ car!”
That’s what happens when you break the law — “business as usual” for Ukraine’s elites.
In Ukraine, to drive buses, you need a D driver’s license. (Which doesn’t quite match Kolesnikov’s B license.)
That same day, Kolesnikov bought a replacement car and proudly declared himself ready to face the law. (Which means no one made him face it right away.)
And what does the law say? It says he should be fined $75 and his driver's license suspended.
But can you really do that to a guy who wears a $420,000 watch?
Not really. Not in Ukraine.
Not unless he lets you.
