Vogue! Yanuk Dispels Small Town Blues With Waterproof Shoes

Not all shoes are worn equal.

An hour prior to meeting with his Russian counterpart, the Prime Minister checked on how the water was being pumped from the flooded streets of Berdyansk. Locals studied with curiosity how Yanukovych was walking through puddles in classic footwear. In contrast to his Cabinet colleagues — chief of transport Rudkovsky and head of emergency management Shufrych — the Premier did not put on resin boots.

Reporter, speaking in Russian: Viktor Fiodorovich, you’re wearing shoes. How does it feel?
Good shoes, buddy. If you're interested, I’ll show you what shoes I’ve got on.

He probably referred to a pair of these.

A little too rich for a coal miner's blood, isn't it? In fact, the price tag equals three months of labor in a mine like Zasyadka.

After watching this, I found myself singing Madonna’s “Vogue” in my own way:

They had style, they had grace

Leonid Kuchma gave good face

Lauren, Katherine, Hanna too
Yanukovych, we love you

MPs with an attitude

Premiers that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it
