We have no idea who’s been dressing Medvedev these days, but someone needs to put down the vampire books. Otherwise, we can only assume that dressing like a vampire CEO is the appropriate attire for putting a beat-down on Ukraine.
On his blog (yes, Medvedev has a blog), everyone’s favorite president figured this would be a good time to give Ukraine some pointers on how to run a country. The highlights:
1) Nikolai Gogol is now the “son of both Ukrainian and Russian peoples.” (Glad we sorted that out.)
2)“Illusions” motivate the Ukrainian government’s view of Russia.
3) “The leadership in Kiev took an openly anti-Russian stand after the Georgia War.” This is not allowed under Section 6 of the “Official Rules for Former Soviet Republics” handbook. (Ukraine, you should have received a copy at orientation.)
Lastly, Medvedev noted:
“I hope that the new leadership of Ukraine will be ready for the break through” in relations with Russia.
This was the official translation. A more accurate translation could read, “Tymoshenko: You. Me. Disco.”
