As Yanukovych Jails Tymoshenko for 7 Years, FEMEN Slam Both

Last October, they messed with Putin. Now they're messing with his partners.

Switch on your mind!” “Tymoshenko and Yanukovych, same shit!”

That's all it takes for Tymoshenko fans to side with the police. The same police that used force to disperse their rally.

As Tymoshenko fans in the EU are going into police mode, Yanukovych has said that the final say rests with the Court of Appeals. Which probably means she'll let her go. Who doesn't need a safe retirement plan?

The EU will be fine with that. Who doesn't need low transit rates and stability?

But there's one problem. The Ukrainian people might feel a little different about this whole gas-stability thing.

"I love Ukraine so deeply that Ukraine has become my life. Not my family (may they forgive me), not my personal affairs, not my ambitions. Ukraine is my life. I swore to her once, and I will be with her until my last breath - in any status, in any place - in power or in opposition, outside of politics or in politics. This is simply my life. I have long understood this. And I no longer resist this fate." - Yulia Tymoshenko

Вона працює! Україна переможе!

Well, it is a tough treatment for a former prime minister.

Yeah, I remember that presidential campaign gimmick.

And it's funny how there's been so much resistance to that *fate* lately.


Not tough enough, actually.

Try white-collar crime in the West, and they put you away for 150 years.
