Clinton Calls Ukraine Election 'A Step Backward'

Wasn't that part of the “lowly enriched iranium” deal?

Or uranium takers can still be democracy choosers?

Anyway, you have to admit: It’s not as bad as in Russia and Belarus. We have some fresh blood. 


Isn't that what democracy is all about?

Tymoshenko Working Out, Prison ‘Montage’ Video Shows

No pain, no gain.

So if you ever experience severe back pain, try high heels or dumbbells. If that doesn’t help, try the U.S. Senate. Or comic relief.


Yanukovych: We get governors' reports on a regular basis here in Kyiv, but when you see it with your own hands, as they say, touch it with your own eyes, according to an old Ukrainian tradition, it's totally different.

What Elections Look Like to Many Ukrainians

It’s not just the vote fraud issue. It’s what the whole thing looks like.

That’s why the “against all” option won’t be available in this election.

Now watch how the government and opposition camps can't tell their rivals’ platform from their own.

Whether it’s wages or water supply, they go yes, yes, yes. Like the Tymoshenko camp lady who says she would honor Lenin’s historical legacy. Or like the Yanukovych camp guy who says he would ensure access to KGB archives.

They’ll agree with any shit they think you want to hear.

How many pranked:  5 pro-Tymoshenko, 5 pro-Yanukovych
How many smelled something fishy: 2 pro-Tymoshenko, 2 pro-Yanukovych

They like to trade. They give you their bread and circuses…


…you give them your brains.

Does this sound too harsh? Well, here’s how they deal with it in the West.
