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...

Colonel Cassad had a good one about this:

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

As I said before,   the Ukraine is a joke that gets funnier each time you tell it.


Too bad that both of them didn't get knocked out.

The only bigger joke is the insanely corrupt USA.

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.  :)

If I was Levchenko, the first guy I would feel like punching is the annoying prick wearing the Lawrence Welk-Light-Blue jacket who keeps pawing him.

It's the fucking wild west out there. Here's an extraordinary clip of tough-guy Lyashko 'hunting separatists':

I think Pelosi went after a republican recently, but the C may not have landed a punch

What a little prick and he sets off my gaydar too. Lyashko was the kind of guy that got fragged on his second day in 'Nam.

Very appropriate video for ZH Fight Club.

But I was almost expecting to see Howard Cosell step into frame after the KO and start talking to the big guy..

Thank God CNN did not cover it. The thought of Anderson Cooper interviewing Lyashko and giggling together is enough to make me wretch.

With Strelkov resignation following Russian Zionist Kurginyan stirring shot up agains him. It seems the stage is being set for the defeat of the militia.

As soon as Ukraine joins the EU, Western Europe will quickly find out what it is like to have a nation of gangsters in its midst.

It would be fun to watch John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi duke it out in Congress. My bet is on Pelosi, the large amounts of botox she has in her system probably give her superhuman strength.

How about this -- any time the DC elites want to start another war, they have to raise the revenue with fights on pay-per-view.  Barry Bare Knuckles Obama vs. Bad AttiTed Cruz, just $49.99, click the blue button.  Fists only -- no throwing chairs (wink wink).

Pelosi vs. Palin could cover the cost of bombing ISIS.

Keep the proles happy with SNAP and circuses.

Nothing like a solid punch in the face to end the babbling of a mouthpiece. I'd give my left jewel to see that happen to a handful of select US politicians. IdI'd give the right too if I could  be the one dishing it out.

Going down is sort of a habit for Lyashko. He's known to be, ummm, a bit light in the loafers.

Lyashko likes doing the down low on underaged boys. This is a requirement to hold senior office for a wannbe western oriented country.
