I'm spending much of my time out there and when I'm home, I'm reading about it or watching it on TV. I woke up this morning from a dream in which I was marching with a rally up some Kyiv hill...

The world outside Ukraine doesn't seem to exist anymore...


  1. Looking at those shirts earier on the company's website, I saw one that didn't make sense...

    What doees "You will answer for the goat" mean?

  2. Because Yanukovich once called opposition supporters "kozly" (goats). It's a prison slang.

    -- Mishah

  3. "asshole" is probably the kindest translation of koziol.


  4. "Kozel" (goat) is widely used as a mild term of abuse in Russian. Most people don't know what it means in prison, though then again most people weren't given 3 years, 4 months and 24 days to find out. The phrase "za kozla otvetish" is proverbial. Something like "are you talkin' to me?"

    Another Misha
