You are the bum and a provocature! Any slogan for free-thinking Ukraine is good. Russia will lose its fight for Ukraine. Ukraine will be free and Russians will learn to respect Ukraine and her Language. And bastards like you will have nothing to say.

Kiltschko you should use your money to support a Political party with European Values....Kiltschko are you also afraid of a lady

Yanukovych and Putin are afraid of a Lady. Yanukych can not sleep he has nightmares thinks of free Yulia.

At the moment the Ukrainian people have two choices 1/. Yanukovych and his influence of Soviet Russia 2/. Yulia and her walk towards Europe .

I hope in the future Ukraine will have more options / variants ,

If the people in East Ukraine love Russia and the Soviet mentality let them move to Moscow. Most Ukrainians want a better life and we all know Europe is the best way forward. Yanukovych and his Russian friends will never allow this because the European values are to honest for their corrupt ways of business and Gas contracts.
