In The World: Ukraine

Recommended Posts

Something wrong about posting this in the Russia thread. So I created a new thread for Ukraine news. My wife would like it too. ūüôā

 

Pretty stunning victory today for the new Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky. My wife is very happy.

For an alternative take that challenges the prevailing narrative of the Maidan uprising I recommend the documentary by Oliver Stone called "Ukraine on Fire". Always a good idea to look at both sides of the story before settling on one of them... certainly can't hurt. Here's a link to the trailer:

Not sure where else I should put this. Cleveland has the USA's fourt-largest Ukrainian community, so it's not exactly a surprise these guys found their way here....

When it rains, it pours. Actually, Ukraine could use a little rain rain right now. 

 

You can use Google to translate the tweet below. But it says that the fire has spread and is already under the walls of the new sarcophagus over the old Chernobyl reactor.

Doubtful. Ukrainian oligarchs don't go to prison even when they're found guilty. No one from Ukraine will extradite him to the USA, assuming a Barr-led Justice Department would actually issue an extradition order. If there is an extradition order, no one from Ukraine would actually enforce it. Sure, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky doesn't want anything to do with Kolomoisky. But Kolomoisky still has many friends there who would tip him off and bribes would be issued to everyone from police to airport personnel to look the other way while Kolomoisky flees to Russia or a non-extradition country. He will have a very pleasant life.
