Yulia will die for Ukraine 2012/4/25 9:09:22

“Russia’s puppet governor Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych, incapable of seeing Ukraine’s potential as one of the wealthiest nations in Europe and a world player, is now faced with the very real possibility that Yulia will die a martyr.  If Viktor Fedorovych thought his crass, crude, politically sophomoric bullying would win the day then he’s finally about to get a reality-check.”

Pawlowsky: “The decision by 13 of the 16 national football teams who have decided to set up their home base camps in Poland sends a very clear message. Stay away from Ukraine.”
