"Вітю на нари, Юлю на Канари!" (0:32-0:35)
"Put Viktor in jail and Yulia in a fairy tale!" (poetic translation:)
As if 2008-2009 wasn’t enough of a fairy tale. The economy drops 15%, the hryvnia loses 60% of its value. People lose their jobs, savings and homes.
And PM/presidential candidate Tymoshenko loses €100K on a Spain getaway?
Not to mention her gas deal that now has Ukraine (Gazprom’s biggest client ‘10) paying well above the EU spot rates: $414 v. $360-$380. We'd be paying $514 had Yanukovych not won that super-magic gas-for-fleet discount.
Not only have we joined the EU, we’ve gone the extra mile.
So where are we, ladies? Jamaica? Haiti?
