Our correspondent Russ reports an interesting conversation between Yulia Tymochenko and Deputatat and National Security Council member of the Ukraine, Nestor Shufrich, “after the Maidan dissapointment at the Crimean referendum result.”
The FSB of Russia hacked the phone call, which has now gone viral. Most Russians interviewed leading up to the referendum had sentiments along the line of the Ukrainian leadership seeing them as second class citizens. It’s something you’d expect them to say and perhaps the reverse for western Ukrainians about Russia but what gives this a particular edge is Tymochenko’s comments. Russ takes up the story.
“They talk about the eastern side of the Ukraine where the citizens are mainly Russian. Shufrich asks, “What are we going to do with them, these derelicts?”
[Derelict: изгой, отщепенец, неимущий, бездомный, отверженный.]
She replies: “блин, их расстреливать из атомного оружия надо”. Which means in English: “We have to shoot them all using nuclear weapons.”
I’ve listened to the tape and can hear where she says this around 50 seconds in:
Not much more needs to be said – she’s referring to the people she was supposedly Prime Minister of. Despite this and the criminal charges of fraud, she is the darling of the western leaders and many westerners themselves.
This one has not gone the way Obama, iDave and the EU anti-democrats wanted. They thought they could whip up public opinion against Russia but ended up losing the Crimea for the Ukraine. And the things Putin really has done wrong are now swept under the rug as he rides high in Russian national esteem.
This is how the klutzes of the US and EU have handled things. Sabre-rattling non-comps. And these are the people in charge of our national defence.
