Dear Hal,

It's a good thing Amado is on our side, wouldn't you say?

The people in Kiev in the Ukraine would be proud to have him (we have to go slow with Amado, otherwise we'll alienate him! wink ).

Amado should be given top honours for wanting to go out on a limb for a "fake country."

All lack of seriousness aside, why DID they choose orange as their colour? Any ideas?

I remember meeting Yuschenko here at the legislature.

His presence is rather overwhelming (I not only shook his hand, I actually kissed it!)

When I told him I was never in Ukraine in my life, he shook his head in disbelief and said, "What do you mean . . . how can you . . . I mean . . ." I responded by saying, "I promise to go soon, sir!" smile

The man who was his translator was known to me - I met him two years prior and I knew he was a government aparatchik (as he admitted to me himself).

They had him closely watched that day!

Slava Ukrayini!

Alex

Dear Hal:

Does that sign language lady, Natalia Dmytruk(?), who precipitated the break from "canned" broadcasts, deserve to be called a patriot and a nationalist?

Alex,

My blood pressure was sky rocketing as my face became darker than the orange jacket I am wearing.

Then I realized it was you, joking of course, but tha still didn't stop me from reporting you to the administrator for your anti-Ukrainian setiments. biggrin

Dear Alex:

Judging the creativeness and doggedness of Yushchenko and of his millions of supporters, like that lady sign language broadcaster, the color orange is/was most appropriate.

It is said that is a rare combination!

Perhaps when your soldiers who will doubtless be stationed in Ukraine in future at several sites come home, they'll bring with them some corrective grammar .
Nah, we have to invade Canada next. That place is full of subversives. wink And since they don't spend much on defense anymore, the invasion should go pretty smoothly. wink biggrin

The I-Day is on!

His Highness, G.W. Bush II, together with his scrappy general, Colin Powell, have landed somewhere in Canada to annex the Dominion as the Northern State of the U.S. of A! wink

The 'separatists' in Ukraine have come up with a great name for their 'entity': South-Eastern Ukrainian Autonomous Republic. Why so great? In Ukrainian it is Південно-східна українська автономна республіка (ПіСУАР), the acronym transliterates as PiSUAR. Enough said! biggrin

Фалсіфікаціям - ні! Махінаціям - ні! Понятіям - ні! Ні брехні!
Ми не бидло, ми не козли, ми Україні доньки і сини!
Разом нас багато - нас не подолати!

I have not watched a single episode of "Clochemerle" but, judging by the number of biggrin from above, this MUST be a hilariously funny British comedy at its best!

(Too many adjectival adjuncts?)

KO63AP, what/who will prevent the other side from proclaiming itself the "Greater Western Ukrainian Independent Republic?" biggrin

For your edification Amado try these 2 sites

http://www.phill.co.uk/comedy/cloche/

This may be a peculiarly British bit of humour

Amado,

the simple fact that there is no "Western" or "Eastern" or any other division of Ukraine. There is but one, whole, united UKRAINE. The western regions of Ukraine could long ago have dumped the rest of the country and formed a more 'Ukrainian' Ukraine. But they didn't. Ukraine is not just where the Ukrainian language is spoken by the majority. If that was the case a passport and visas would be needed to pass through some parts of Canada and the US! wink

Most people in Ukraine feel strongly about the unity of the country, even those not ethnically Ukrainian. On the other hand you have opportunists/mafia who think they can grab more for themselves if they don't have to answer to the rest of the country, and those who have been lead to believe that their region really runs the show and doesn't need the rest of the country. Sadly, these people will end up paying the biggest price if there is a split.

IMHO if it did go to a fair vote (please, stop laughing!) the separatist movement will fail.

Now, if we can only start working on reclaiming some lands currently occupied by our neighbours.... Just kidding! :p

Нас багато - нас не подолати!
