Ukraine Politics As Usual: "Pot-Bellied Fatty" Shevchenko KOs Deputy Speaker - Caught On Tape

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It appears Ukraine's Radical Party leader Oleh Lyashko is a glutton for punishment. In 2011, as Reuters reports, he was throttled and pushed to the ground by former Vice-Speaker Adam Martinyuk after he accused him of hypocrisy; and on a separate occasion Martinyuk threw a glass of water in his face. However, this morning, it got serious after he accused Independent Party Deputy Oleksandr Shevchenko of being a "pot-bellied fatty," who "instead of going to the Donbass and helping our guys, people like him go to parliament and raise their hands." Shevchenko's response - solid right cross to Lyashko's jaw, sending the smaller man staggering. One can't help but wonder how this approach to settling political scores would go down in Washington...

 

Forward to the 2:00 mark for the fun-and-games to really begin...

"The episode itself is quite characteristic of the current Ukrainian moronity and is not surprising anymore."

That was definitely not even a loaded shot. Kind of a cross between a jab and a cross. Even looks like he led with his front foot.

Sounded nice though.  And definitely wobbled the little man.  :)

"The latest escalation in tensions has taken its toll on Ukraine’s teetering economy. Its currency, the hryvnia, is plumbing new depths this week. Languishing at all-time lows against the dollar, the currency has lost almost 40% of its value against the dollar so far this year"

This is news of the Ukrainian currency which has been losing value at a steady rate and winter is still months off! Of course this means the average Ukrainian family has less power to purchase the goods the EU hopes to sell to them! The Donbass Rebels are fighting for time, Putin is staying away from military action to buy time. All the signals for Ukraine's economy are negative. The economy serviced the larger Russian economy and markets. That is now over. Imagine the end of the Ukrainian's economy as being only 6 months away. Februray will be a critical point. Unless a huge victory is won in the East, the IMF gives the full loans and the EU steps in with perhaps 25 billion in instant free money to get through till next summer.

First of all. None of them care enough about the job or each other to resort to fists in the face when violations of the law are perpetrated with such regularity in the U.S. House of Representatives. It's like taking a daily "constitutional" over the porcelain convenience and refusing to flush.

Second of all. The American people should have been putting their elected representatives on stretchers 25 years ago for the job performance they've been giving us.

The only thing that would match the crimes and treason that have been committed at this point is a rubber body bag in an unmarked grave!

I'd like to see this happen in Congress. And all-out...a real beat-down. With someone being dragged out of the chamber and curb stomped on the Capitol steps.

Won't happen. They're all on the same side ... like the Harlem Globe Trotters and the Washington Generals.

Looks like another episode of the DC US and Israeli reality show "How to Turn a Country Upside Down."

Here we have two Ukrainian pols fighting over who will get the DC US and Israeli lucre and who will not.

An American, not US subject.

These are the guys that the US is counting on to sort out the 'problems' in the East!!!

You couldn't make it up.

We have heard of putting boots on the ground and it normally applies to soldiers. Perhaps this lot need an injection of politicians instead? On second thoughts...............

Such physical violence was not uncommon BEFORE the February 2014 Kiev coup, but has become ROUTINE since the Kiev coup, especially by members of the Right-Sector and Svoboda (whether as Parliament members or simply thugs - more like "enforcers" to ensure other members of Parliament vote the "right way".). (My wife, who has lived in UKraine and Crimea most of her life, states that fist fights in Parliament were also common; only much MORE COMMON and often VIOLENT since the coup.)

The Right-Sector and Svoboda are the two neo-NAZI parties, whose members still walk the halls openly armed with rifles and pistols of the Ukraine Parliament and other government buildings, along with oblasts (states) and outlying cities' administrative buildings. They have beaten up and/or physically threatened members of Parliament along with regional and city officials in various parts of Ukraine, with many of these incidents available on VIDEO sites such as YouTube.com. They have even burned down the HOMES of their political opponents, including other members of Parliament, including right in Kiev itself.

I'd like to see Vitaly Klitschko in one of these impromptu bouts. I bet he could mop the floor with at least three members of the opposition before the security guards finally tasered him.
