Copy Cat

Earlier this week, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was given a Bengal albino tiger cub as a this story seems familiar. Apparently Yulia wants to take it to negotiations with her when it grows up. If so, this could be the first step towards the now annual Ukrainian-Russian gas price renegotiations that we will actually be excited to watch. I wonder which of his many gifted animals Putin would take....apparently he has been given enough to open up several zoos.

However, we know Putin is good at taking down wild cats so I guess this is not the solution to bilateral relations after all.

Umm, in case you missed it, she had the good sense to donate it to the zoo in Yalta.

Ahhh, but it seems there's more to the story, if you've been paying attention to what's going on in Ukraine.

Seems that the Yalta Zoo has had several animals die.

Why? Well, it seems that the owner of the zoo is also somewhat of a shaker-upper in politics.

And the corrupt people being shook up didn't like it.

So what better way to get back at someone than to kill the animals in the zoo?

Ain't sovok legacy and sovok mentality just - sick, twisted and rotten beyond belief?
