Ukraine President Dissolves Parliament, Announces It On Twitter

Tyler Durden's picture


Last week we were intrigued when the Ukraine Central Bank announced its FX market intervention plans not via 'trader sources" or Bloomberg but through its Facebook account (which later failed as the Hryvnia pushed on to record lows). Today, we hear perhaps even more important news - that Ukraine President Poroshenko has dissolved parliament. This was not entirely surprising news given recent political breakdowns but his chosen medium to disseminate this crucial (and potentiall detsabilizing) news... his Twitter account.

The crucial Twitter account to follow for all Ukrainians...

yes madness, but if he dissolves parliament does that mean he can rule without any opposition at all, i.e. become the great dictator of all ukraine?

I'd prefer people to make important announcements on twitter.

That way the bullshit media doesn't have a chance to "filter" the information for their purposes, like Huffpo and other propaganda outlets do every day.

He was afraid that if he went through Ukrainian news outlets the story would become:

"Russian tanks cross border... SS missiles close Parliament.

I wonder what sort of image this idiot is trying to portray, because this incident gives me any confidence this guy is a complete US stooge.

Something that Chupacabra forgot to turn on?

I know what it is to disseminate information, but not quite sure about decemenate

Is this the State Dept and CIA run by Jonathan Pollard's friends and relatives?

The Ukies need to get smart and go after these oligarchs in Kiev and give them an Italian Job - like the one Mussolini and his girlfriend got.   They were hung upside down at an Esso (Rockerfeller-Red Shield oil) station.

Yes, madness...

Not using any IT technology (hardware and software) product of markets for giving a message.

Madness, the fact that governments still exist.

to mark the end of the match.

Insane. The NWO seems to think that the best way to communicate with the masses (or propagandize them) is via Youtube , Facebook and Twitter...? The latest annpuncemnets not surprising considering the "communication" regarding the downed airliner was pushed out thru same channels. An airliner shot down and about 300 people killed and "evidence" is presented in social media,only?? And now this? Very few reasonably reliable facts have been presented. Perhaps the conspiracy nuts have been right all along? It´s just smoke and mirrors from the western side.

I'm sure this move has nothing to do with Pornoshenko calling the parliament a bunch of traitors for not going along with his genocidal/neo-con crap?

Its way worse..

with that illegal coup and all, backed with wonton murder.

What has NK to do with this again?

How many people from other nations have died as a result of internal Russian oligarch corruption?

It was as illegal as geting off Hitler.

And there where presidential election so he is legal president that represents Ukranians.

I see you missed the 5-6 mth period before the legal elections.

Hell of a show man, Gloria and Yulia in the depraved dyke dungeon..

People sniped in the head left and right, with a bunch actually burned alive..

All under the allCIAing eye, that part they left out, cause that would be illegal...

There was no need for propaganda. Remember those videos of the beatings?  Kiev parliament did a fine job of demonstrating dysfunctionality all by itself. 

This might be a gesture of good faith to weed out Nazis in anticipation of a deal with Putin. Something is cooking, definitely.

They where fighting all these years. Also when that Putin criminal puppet with his family was in control (after he was throuwn out for steeling just too much from Ukranian people).

Yeah, $5 billion of our tax dollars (and counting) to replace thieves with mass-murdering Nazis backed by oligarch-funded private mercenary armies.

USA, USA!!!!
