Kyiv Post

Many of us at the Kyiv Post would have loved to have gone to pop superstar Madonna’s Aug. 4 concert in Olympic Stadium. But given the modest pay of journalists, everyone here opted not to spring Hr 700 to Hr 13,000 for tickets.

Another not so wise or smart reply from a damaged product of the sovok mafiosi.

No, carl, what they are saying is that they have standards and ethics - something which is sorely and tragically lacking in Zookraine.

What they are saying is that they reject the attempts of Akhmetov to buy favorable news coverage by means of "gifts" rather than good deeds for the country.

It would be a great idea for Zookrainians to stop their stupid habits of making simple things complicated, and of twisting everything into lies.
