Yanukovych to Japan: ‘Welkom in Ukraine!’

It’s easy when you’re big in Japan!

Yanukovych: As Japanese wisdom has it, ‘A plan without action is a pipe dream. Action without a plan is failure. Welkom in Ukraine!

Looks like somebody took out an artistic license on Japanese wisdom. “Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.” Was that the original saying?

Anyway, some travel tips: Jak se mas? Welkom in Yanukstan! Veri nice! Hi five!

Of course, "Welkom in Ukraine" is the correct Dutch form (well, "Ukraine" should be "Oekraïne", but the rest is OK). Maybe Yanukovych was trying to speak Dutch. :-)

That's a good guess!:)

His dialect probably dates back to the Dutch East India Company.

Wait until he goes Dutch on the host countries to split his travel bill!:)))
