Yanukovych: Ukraine ‘Must Be Made Unsafe’ (Gaffe)

It's not the first time. Maybe he means it?

Yanukovych: I’m being told that this must be done ahead of Euro 2012. Not just then, dear colleagues. Not just then. We believe that our whole territory...of our state must be made unsafe to live in for our citizens. And undoubtedly, once guests start coming to us, even more so.

Yet another reason for Merkel to stay at home for Euro 2012...

...and do some geography homework.

Countryside Toddler Dies as Hospitals Juggle Him

Dear West, can you send your doctors to Ukrainians who need them?

In a country where politicians of all stripes have so much gas, why do ambulances have so little? Why so many hospitals without doctors?

Police are now looking into how a cup of hot water killed the kid. In the unlikely event that someone goes to jail for this, will Western dignitaries flock to them too?

If you guys don’t want "selective justice," what do you want? Suicidal justice? Like, the Bloods turning themselves in or shooting themselves, and the Crips following suit?

Or maybe all you want for Ukraine is 100% stability and 0% accountability? Maybe you’re fine with the crooks as long as they don’t have the nukes?


Fellas, don’t shoot each other
In this life you have nothing to divvy up
At the round table forget your grievances
‘Cause burying friends is hard for everyone

If this is your song for Ukraine, why complain about corruption?

Yatsenyuk's 'Conceptually New' Vision of Ukraine (English Inside)

Sooooo Yushchenko. Except that this guy does speak English!

Here's the whole thing (the United Opposition Forum, May 12).


So what's new? Seriously, what's new? Nothing much. "We're the good guys! Vote for us again and good things will happen."

Never mind that we live worlds apart from you. Never mind that some of us are no longer with us. Joining the Yanukovych majority is no big deal. It's business as usual. It's nothing personal.

And can't you see the difference now? We speak E-N-G-L-I-S-H! Better English.

If only John Edwards had the liberty of living by Ukraine's election law... 

Conversely, if only Ukraine's ruling regime and opposition could survive through the selective justice...of US election law... 

How many politicians would survive?

Yanukovych Pins 'Fascism' on WW II Vets in Gaffe


Yanukovych: You made it through the hell of war. With Fascism, you were fully paying your debt of honor to...the Fatherland.

Ironically, the Fatherland also happens to be the name of Tymoshenko's party.
