World’s Most Egg-citing Parliament

The Ukrainian Parliament is more entertaining than most. C-SPAN should add it to their mix of non-U.S. content, although we’d lose some in the translation. We can understand the chatter at the House of Commons. Only us Ukrainians can understand this stuff.

The latest comes to us courtesy of President Yanukovych, who signed an extension to keep the Russian naval base at Sevastopol, in exchange for a 30% discount on natural gas deliveries. It’s no yolk this goes against Article 17 of the Ukrainian Constitution: “The location of foreign military bases shall not be permitted on the territory of Ukraine.”
