(.....”Tymoshenko is a Ukrainian mobster rival to Putins Ukrainian mobsters”....)
Isn’t she generally quite popular with the people?..or is she a female Don in her own right that handles her political PR on the softer side. She does embrace the finer things of life no doubt.
Either or it doesn’t look like Ukraine’s going to have much change in who oversees their governing affairs if she wins the vote....she helped bankrupt the country, though she is favored by the US I understand.
Meanwhile... Anti-Putin activists left for Russia this past week to organize further protests against Putin. Likely he has banned public protests for the tensions in Ukraine.
Like so many voters in the United States voting for populist Democrats or corrupt Establishment Republican RINO political leaders, many Ukrainian voters choose anyone who is anti-Russian, anti-Putin, or simply the lesser of two evils until a bettr choice becomes avaialable. We have the same problem here in the United States with voters having only the lesser of two evils for a choice. This political manipulation is in keeping with the observation, that if you want to herd the livestock into the slaughterpen, you close off all opportunities to select a path away from the slaughterpen until there is no place else to go but inside the slaughterpen where the gate can shut them in for the upcoming slaughter. So it is in politics, when the two or more evils contest who gets to herd the livestock into the slaughterpen while jointly denying those who would be free to have any voice or influence on being free of their evil political machinations.
