I'm not sure you can buy these T-shirts if you live outside Kyiv and outside Ukraine - but here they are (Andrei Chernikov, thanks for the link and for the wonderful article (in Russian) in Obozrevatel!)...
Victor Yushchenko T-shirt:
Yulia Tymoshenko T-shirt:
Hey, it would just be so "klyovy" to get those t-shirts. But Yulia Tymoshenko in profile DOES look like Princess Leia of Star Wars. So does that make Yushchenko Han Solo? Ha! And the rebel forces do wear orange in Episode IV! Sorry for rambling, maybe the proceedings are getting to me...ReplyDelete
Finally someone guessed! May the force be with you.ReplyDelete
WHY does Yushchenko have the RED STAR ?????ReplyDelete
Is that serious ?!?!
Hm, someone may not understand what is so weird in this red star... Well, at least in Poland, no one would have positive associations with this symbol. Actually, I personally would never wear a T-shirt with a red star exactly as well as I wouldn't wear a T-shirt with swastica...ReplyDelete
Yushchenko and the red star??? :-PPP
OK, a last comment, just not to be misunderstood:ReplyDelete
I associate the symbol of a red star with Stalin.
The same way like I would associate the symbol of swastica with Hitler... :-/ Sorry...
Yesterday on the street I saw a girl with a very Yulia/Leia hairstyle. I definitely see that trend returning here. *grin*ReplyDelete
I say to-MAY-to, you say to-MAH-to.ReplyDelete
Pretty clear what you're saying, Ania. But the take really was for Yushchenko to look -- warts (or red star) and all -- like El Comandante, Che Guevarra. El Che, after all, was a dyed-in-the-wool revolutionary who exported revolution wherever he went. Stalin or no.
P.S. Are you related to Ania, the singer?;)
