    Fists fly in Ukraine's parliament after an opposition lawmaker grabs Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk from the podium during an annual speech. The prime minister and his allies are accused of corruption, and MP Oleg Barna says the people will remove him if he doesn't resign.

    Place is seriously fucked up. Glad my grandparents got the hell out of there when the Reds took over 100 years ago. Uncle Joe gave them the word about the insidious effects of rampant corruption earlier this week from the very same podium. I guess a few folks took him seriously! (By the way, this is how every large gathering of my extended family ends up. We have a wedding coming up in February - can't wait!!!).

    Like many other eastern European countries, it's a bunch of tribal areas knit into "country" - with religious extremists on the southern border and Mother Russia all around. Before there were nukes lying around, we could afford to ignore this type of shit. Now? Not so much...

    JOSEPH BIDEN, America’s folksy vice-president, is not known as an enforcer—except in Ukraine, where he has become the spearhead of American policy. This week Mr Biden made his fourth visit to Kiev since Ukraine’s Maidan revolution and delivered a fiery speech in parliament, imploring the country’s leaders to eradicate “the cancer of corruption”. He invoked the “Heavenly Hundred”, the protesters slain on Kiev’s icy streets in 2014. “Their sacrifice, to put it bluntly, is now your obligation,” Mr Biden roared.

    Even as Mr Biden was speaking, Roman Baidovsky faced a panel of expressionless judges in a cramped courtroom halfway across town. Mr Baidovsky’s 23-year-old son, Sergey, was one of the Heavenly Hundred. Sergey’s killers and their superiors have yet to be punished. Incompetence has hampered the investigation, and the old guard in the security services have undermined it. Most crucially, says Taras Hatalyak of OPORA, a human rights group, “there’s no political will” among the country’s leaders to pursue the cases, an assessment echoed by senior Ukrainian lawenforcement officials.

    Ukraine is absolutely a failed state. It was a failed state when the last guy was running it, and it's still a failed state under the neo-nazi govt installed by the CIA

    Also, most Russians/slavs don't like Stoli. Russian friends of mine call it "Latvian Toilet Water"
