Meanwhile in the Ukraine this just happened

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/ukraine-elects-a-television-comic-president-by-a-landslide/ar-BBW9N4e?ocid=spartanntp

KIEV—Exit polls show a television comedian backed by a shadowy billionaire has won Ukraine’s presidential elections with a crushing majority that may ultimately be greater than 70 percent.



Zelenskiy is a clown whose humor is, to say the least, broad. Not long before election day, in one of his comedy skits that aired on Ukrainian television, Zelenskiy played a sex-obsessed middle-aged husband so overwhelmed by the sight of a popular young singer’s breasts that he dared not stand up. “It’s as if I am stabbed with a sword,” he told his wife, alluding to his unwanted erection.
Not so funny, really, but the now soon-to-be president of Ukraine does not care if his old jokes were a little crude and more than a little salty. He knows people love him.


end of times, anyone?

For the Iran/Iraq gas pipeline?

5. I dont understand why Ukraine....

makes the news so frequently. Almost daily, they're in the news. I dont have an issue with them, but I dont see why that's the case. Yes, the Russians are always on their ass! And maybe that's why. Poor Urkraine!
