New (hopefully!) president of Ukraine
« on: April 02, 2019, 05:17:26 AM »
Was this topic discussed here elsewhere? Have I missed that thread?

Being during last 2-3 years a "95th kvartal" fan, I am absolutely happy for Ukrainians  :party0011:  to have in just three weeks such a president. They have definitely deserved it.
Leaving Russia is not an emigration, rather an evacuation.

Really, they deserve a 'President' that might be Kolomoisky's puppet ..?

Three weeks is a long time.

We might want to consider whether he is, in truth, a stalking horse for a man whose name has become less prominent the past couple of years, but who is not a man you'd want to have running your country!

Hopefully Ukraine will get a President that might actually accomplish some good for a change.

The puppet master has returned to Ukraine (Kolomoisky)
What is worse than not being able to get what you don't even want?

The reins of power have been handed over.
Long live the new king, same as the old king.

So proclaims our resident 'exoert' in Ukraine and 'reasons' why airliners fall from the sky..

As, we do not know if he IS a sock puppet...or if he will bite the hand that is alleged to be controlling him...is this yet another example of an andrewfi 'premature evacuation' ?...
