What a difference a REAL PATRIOT President makes!

During the dark years of orange mafia rule Ukraine economy SLUMPED by over 9% - worst economy fall not only amongst Europe but also amongst the CIS economies. The orange traitors and their xoxol diaspora pimp and sex trafficker cronies turned Ukraine into banana republic known only as a chep sex tourism destination full of children alcoholics and prostitutes.

The Ukraine people rose and disposed of the orange menace and their US masters during the BLUE REVOLUTION of 2009 and elected THEIR President - mr Yanukovych. In result the Ukraine economy is GROWING and the Ukraine people are much better of compared to the dark times of orange mafia rule.

Bravo to the ONLY democratically elected President in the Ukraine history - mr Yanukovych.

The bumper crop and the EURO 2012 are one-time events. To use them as (an integral)part of a set of statistics to give the impression that Ukraine's economy is doing well is absolutely dishonest.
