Education Minister Dmytro Tabachnyk, has always been a controversial figure because of his antagonistic views towards western Ukrainians, Ukrainian nationalism and his pro-Russian view of history. Valery Khoroshkovsky continues to remain in his position as the Chairman of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) despite continually embarrassing President Viktor Yanukovych. Read the story HERE.

What civilized country on this planet

would have a non-descript individual masquerading

as 'education' minister....when this persons hates the

country he is living in....and hates the inhabitants

of that country even more.

This is only possible in the bandit country

of Ukraine. Mr. tabachnyk is an anchor hung around the necks of

Ukrainian students. He is a destroyer of legitimate education

and should be removed promptly. His biases and his utter contempt for

Ukrainians must be neutralized by sending him to russia

where he will feel more comfortable.

West is values

East is greed

Ukrainians need a grass root &quot;Ukrainian is Beautiful&quot; (not better) campaign.

Start with yourself,

than the family,

and in the neighborhood,

school / workplace / church,





then the world.
