Ukraine minister under fire for swearing about Putin
Chicago Tribune ^ | June 15, 2014 | Timothy Heritage and Alissa de Carbonnel

Senior Russian parliamentarians urged Ukraine on Sunday to sack its foreign minister for calling President Vladimir Putin a "dickhead" during a violent protest outside Russia's embassy in Kiev.

Acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia tried to persuade protesters not to use violence at the rally on Saturday evening, during which the Russian flag was ripped up, vehicles overturned and stones and eggs thrown at the embassy.

"We must fulfill our international obligations, including defending the right of Russia to have an embassy in Ukraine," he told the protesters, angered by pro-Russian separatists shooting down a military cargo plane in east Ukraine, killing 49 people.

But challenged by the protesters, he added: "Did I say that I am against you protesting? I am for you protesting. I am ready to be here with you and say 'Russia, get out of Ukraine'."

"Yes, Putin is a dickhead, yes," he went on to say and the protesters responded by chanting the phrase.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in a telephone call with his french counterpart on Sunday, "expressed outrage over the inaction of the Kiev authorities who allowed the rioting outside the Russian embassy," the ministry said in a statement.

The only Nazis are the ones in Muscovy. You know the ones who go around invading neighbors.

Calling Putin a “dickhead” is wrong, so wrong.

He is a sly, conniving, narcissistic, murderous, dangerous, lying psychopath. After all, the KGB never recruited humanitarians.

The Obama supporting Chicago Tribune with its headline makes it seem like the minister did something wrong.

Meanwhile the minister was defending the Russian embassy and being very reserved in his comments about the murderous, lying psychopath.

It's always good for a laugh what people will do when 49 of their countrymen are murdered by a terrorist supporting thug.

Unbelievable.

"Is this true?"

"Yes your honor, this man is a dickhead."

They’re not Nazis. If they were, they wouldn’t have so much Jewish support both in Ukraine and in Israel.

Those 49 ‘countrymen’ were paratroopers sent there to attack their own citizens. What if that happened here in the US.

Stop making sense. Junta supporters are covertly itching to have Ukraine at home one day. It is probably a kind of masochism or they plan to be on side of tyrants.

Those 49 countrymen were there to defend a majority of Eastern Ukrainian citizens who have been intimidated by violence into silence.

They were there to defend against a coalition of a minority of Eastern Ukrainian citizens and a large number of foreign Russian national invaders who wish to separate that portion of Ukraine against the will of the majority of the folks who live there.

They are fighting back the best they can. Sometimes all you can do is flip em off.

For the time being.

They’re still not Nazis. All over North Africa, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and even in Asia there were people who sided with Nazi Germany because they hated communist oppressors, or the British Empire, or somebody else. There were plenty of Russians who did the same thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Liberation_Army
