Business New Europe: Spoof ad in Ukraine puts cat amongst the pigeons
It started as a joke, but a billboard sporting a Ukrainian babushka and her cat has gone viral and is seriously embarrassing the government of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Two weeks ago the ad appeared on a billboard in the industrial town of Dniprodzerzhynsk, the heartland of political support for Yanukovych and his governing Party of Regions. Accompanying the picture of the old woman and her cat was the caption: "I learnt that my grandson voted for the Party of Regions, so I re-wrote my will to give my house to the cat."
