    Fantastic, isn't it? But one can hardly blame them, as Lyashko's public beatings are such an established feature of rump Ukraine life.

    However, neither compare to Drinking Football, which in the village of my childhood, was played on a full sized football pitch where all team members had to comport themselves in fancy dress. Usual choices were variations of full length evening gowns complete with an accompanying parasol and elbow length formal gloves. Whenever a goal was scored it was compulsory for the scoring team to run off the pitch and hurriedly down a pint of bitter from the full sized oak barrel on the sidelines, before returning to the fray. Competitive sport and quaffing large quantities of alcohol rarely result in any form of sporting achievement. Likewise with politics, I guess.


    Ukraine has nothing on sweet English village sporting activities of a bygone age.
    Ye olde rural England, a green and pleasant land where men were men, the sheep petrified, and both died young.

    We must extract the sword of truth from the stone of modernity and boldly set forth into, er, our past:

    Default A discussion on terminology

    A number of readers of this thread have protested at my decision to use the d-word with reference to a fascist nonce.

    These objections led me to search the internet in search of wisdom. I have found some, courtesy of Hank Johnson (D-Ga), and feel obliged to share it with you:

    Why does no one object to the G word? Is it that giantism is socially regarded as acceptable? Is Big really better?
    The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

    In a word, size-ism. There's a lot of it about. We need to fight it in our daily lives, preferably armed with an enormous grant from Soros. After all, what's more important to any self-respecting Anglo-American progressive - a Yemeni or Donbass child's life, or a beastly word?

    Default Shocking footage emerges of Lyashko's victims at play

    Somewhere up the Bosphorus, two grown men, victims of Oleg's "improvements," battle their inner demons. Heart-rending. Those of a sensitive disposition should unquestionably look away:

    Leader of Ukrainian Radical Party issues nuclear ultimatum after Trump revokes his visa

    February 7, 2017 - Fort Russ News

    Oleg Lyashko, Facebook - Translated by Kristina Kharlova

    My 10-year U.S. visa, which I just got before the New Year was just revoked. The consular officer said that he had such instructions from Washington.

    And I have instructions from the Ukrainian people - to demand that the US fulfills its obligations to Ukraine under the Budapest Memorandum, otherwise Ukraine will have to restore nuclear weapons to protect itself.

    Also, we strongly condemn the new IMF memorandum, which preserves the status of Ukraine as a resource colony. I think it is because I stand for the national interests of Ukraine, not Moscow or Washington, the unprecedented decision to revoke my visa was made.

    Good-bye, America!

    I will pay a visit when Ukrainians will choose me as their President. And now instead of visiting US, I will visit our people who need not a visa or a visa-free regime but work and a decent life.

    Oleg Lyashko
    ***

    Amnesty International has condemned Oleg Lyashko for kidnapping and "harsh treatment" of anti-government activists while being completely above the law as a people's deputy and accused Ukrainian authorities of failure to enforce the law.

    Oleg Lyashko has recorded a video of the brutal handing of his captive, the anti-government 'separatist,' for which he has earned strong support among the radical elements of Ukrainian voters.

    In March, 2014, Oleg Lyashko kidnapped Arsen Klinchaev, Lugansk deputy from the Party of Regions. While bragging about the kidnapping on his Facebook, Lyashko described Klinchaev as a leader of Lugansk separatists.

    Lyashko threatened his family, promised to hang him for flying Russian banners and upon release promised he will shoot him next time.

    Disturbing video of the kidnapping can be watched here.

    Lyashko has advocated for capital punishment for any 'traitors of Ukraine'. He was one of the lobbyists advocating for the creation of Azov battalion. He took credit for the bloody attack on Mariupol in May 2014.

    Lyashko is wanted in Russia for the kidnapping and torture of Mariupol resident Dmitry Chaikovsky.

    Oleg Lyashko was sentenced to 6 years behind bars for embezzlement of state property. He served one year.

    In 2012 a 16-year old boy accused Lyashko of rape. In 2012 Lyashko was prevented from taking 12 and 14 year old boys from Crimean orphanage to Turkey, which resulted in a pedophile scandal.

    In 2014 Lyashko ran for president of Ukraine.
