I want to have quick access to these videos, so I'll post them here. This kind of comic relief is something many Ukrainians need right now. Can't be just me alone, right?

Yanukovych, Medvedev and the wreath:

As I wrote elsewhere, it reminds me of something out of a 1980s French comedy - I keep thinking of 'Nevezuchiye'/'La Chèvre' with Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu... :)

Also, I really liked how one of Kyiv friends put it on Facebook, "The little Big Brother comes to the rescue of the big little brother"...


Surkis picking his nose, then wiping his hand on Shufrych:


  1. I keep having these spontaneous bursts of laughter today, every time I think of this video. Can you imagine if it fell on Medvedev? It would've downed him! Too bad Yanuk didn't faint--would've been his signature reaction to objects unexpectedly hitting him.

  2. So, how are they planning to punish the wreath? Kto vinovat?
