I've just posted excerpts of Belarusian LJ conversations at Global Voices Online - here.

Zhyve Belarus!


While I was writing, Natalya Vitrenko's people have set up their tents - in between Yushchenko's - and turned the music on. Assholes. Because of them, I at one point accidentally deleted a rather big chunk of text and had to re-write. It's impossible to concentrate when stuff like Moya rodina - Sovetskiy Soyuz ("My motherland's the Soviet Union") is blaring outside your window almost non-stop, interrupted only by "Voyna narodnaya, svyashchennaya voyna " ("People's war, holy war"). Jerks.


A wonderful comment by estee to my post about Vitrenko a few weeks ago - I should have pulled it out of the comments section a long time ago:

How to explain who the hack Vitrienka is? Hey, Neeka, remember that recent local joke:

«If Vitrienko could take aLL voices speaking in her head, she'd probably reach 3% threshold in upcoming elections»..

Oh, but still some local specific: voice=vote in ukr. :=)


Tomorrow's the last day - and then it'll be quiet!

  1. The strongest association Vitrenko carries for me is her hilarious campaign poster from the last election.

    For me, Vitrenko will always be "the Hand Lady".
