Petro Poroshenko “Willy Wonka” New Ukraine president

Petro Prorshenko; Ukraine's Chocolate and sweets Billionaire is elected president of Ukraine.

“But that is how things work in eastern Europe”  Petro Poroshenko; Ukraine’s Chocolate and sweets Billionaire is elected president of Ukraine.

We might think it strange to vote a chocolate factory billionaire as president of the country, we voted for a man with red Speedo’s  (aka underpants) to run our nation.

Even in the east where he was least popular, at least 1 in 3 people voted for him. With such a large primary vote a run off was not required.

So now there is talk of corruption, How Poroshenko got his billions, his connection to Euromaidan via his TV channels etc.

Curiously much of his wealth come from Russians enjoying the old Soviet era chocolates and sweets that his factories produce. Could the tensions over Ukraine and Crimea be solved by the taste buds of Russians?

Stranger things have happened.

So what does he actually look like?

Crimea Ballot stuffing

Why have an illegal referendum, when you can make a mockery of democratic process at the same time?

Saratov RUSSaratov: Home to significant arts institutions and significant Ukrainian and German populations

Russia begins to lose support for the war despite all the propaganda. Could this be the start of Maiden style protests in Russia. More and more evidence of  Yukanovich’s dirty deals with Russia and the oligarchs are emerging. Russia has had a similar history of oligarch control, so are Russians beginning to wake up to the possibility that change is achievable, and that freedom is a spreading contagion. Can Russians overthrow their own oligarchy like the Ukrainians have done? The first step is to see through all the lies, propaganda and fear-mongering.

This great article shows the bravery to confront force with peace and deescalate a volatile situation, an the propaganda creating the conflict where none existed.

Mrs Mamchur, who is herself half Russian, blamed a ceaseless barrage of Kremlin propaganda for creating and stoking artificial tensions between ethnic Russians and others, especially Ukrainians and Tatars, on the peninsula.

Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine are really one slavic people,” said the Colonel. “The divisions are only formalities. Whoever gave the order for this operation set brother against brother. It’s a crazy situation.

‘Sybil’, A surprise award winner from Ukraine, shilling up whatever point of view is paying at the time. Proof you can’t always believe what you see in the media.

In war, truth is the first casualty.
