Commenting article: Adam Michnik: Putin’s Impunity

Adam Michnik is a Polish historian, intellectual, and former dissident. Currently, he is the editor-in-chief of Poland's leading newspaper "Gazeta Wyborcza".

By annexing Crimea, Vladimir Putin behaved like the Godfather. He told Russia and the world: either your brains or your signature will be on that contract. This policy has proved successful, though nobody knows for how long.

He's just a psycho-nut from Turnu Severin.

...;-)... the InternatiOnal Law,.....I qUOte.....

To warfou and Huib van den Doel : thanks that You both didn't mention the Internatianal Law. Great. As for the
rest, I qoute You:
(1)"the referendum was a bluff because many voters were imported from Russia and there weren't any INDEPENDENT international observers present"----(a) many voters from Russia? Well, a couple of names, if possible. And don't forget, please, that ALL voters were registered and ANY name can be at any moment checked by UN/ USA/EU representatives, if their wish be. What's the problem? (b) ALL International Observers were invited to "present", ALL of them, simply a FACT.
(2)"...all the "observers"...were from parties that are regarded as suspect, rightist and xenophobic (Bolen en Cie, for instance)"---any FACT about, say, that very "Bolen en Cie", OK?

Huib van den Doel - 22 Mar 2014 // 09:41:12

It's telling that all the "observers" that came to the Crimea were from parties that are regarded as suspect, rightist and xenophobic (Bolen en Cie, for instance). Tell who your friends are, and i'll tell you who you are.....

I do not "spit" on the Crimean people. I just say that the referendum was a bluff because many voters were imported from Russia and there weren't any INDEPENDENT international observers present, only those paid by Putin. What regards the credibility of these international observers I can only say that they included one Polish guy, Mateusz Piskorski who was even designated by Russians to lead the "independent observers' commission". This guy is a "Samoobrona" party member, which party is similar to the Bulgarian "Ataka" (aren't they financed from the same source, are they?). He is also "director of international institute for geopolitical issues", a body whose reputation is even not as big as its name, located in a small private flat in Warsaw, and believed to be sponsored by Russian secret service. Piskorski is completely unknown in Poland, and the Samoobrona has less than 0,5 % of votes. So, that is why I say the referendum was a bluff, dear sushi.

Brevity ;-)!!!....A brief remark, Seedo-copro: I have no smallest "phil?a"/liking to "k?pros"/excrements
i.e. to the above Куче говна (Pile of excrements) and its stinking components.

Seedy - 21 Mar 2014 // 10:23:01

Slop-py - to quote Shakespeare: "Brevity is the soul of wit". Your incomprehensible muttering appears to be the "soul" of some form of insanity - or at least coprophilia, since you appear to both love it and talk it... ;)

sa-sha - 21 Mar 2014 // 09:32:30

To Seedy: not bad, on the whole, "incomprehensible prat" especially, since it - in MY Russian equivalent - does fully describe the unholy, or, better to say, the malodorous trinity: "Сиди" (Seedy)+ "хуй-б-ал-бес"(Huib...) +
"Бздила гороховая" (Beh...), in summary it gives: "Куча говна" [Купчина лайна]. Taking into account Your
linguistic talent, You will learn it by heart easily: Seedy-Куча говна. I "forgot" Warfou since that pedrillo spits on the entire people of Crimea but he can't swim, I'm afraid ;-).

Huib van den Doel - 20 Mar 2014 // 17:51:24

Probably the only country in Europe (?) that conforms to the usual description of a fascist state is Russia: the cult of the leader (see him entering the room under the hollering: "Vladimir Vladimirowitsj Putin") lack of democracy, judiciary under the control of the executive, extreme nationalism and xenophobia, repression of minorities, ethnic or otherwise.

"Not to mention their ultra-Catholic anti-gay fascism"

Well, we all know why YOU are so concerned about this "anti-gay fascism"...It cannot be the "fascism part", because your writing is clearly 100% fascist propaganda. Maybe you are a closet..."back-scrubber"?


Seedy - 20 Mar 2014 // 15:26:13

Sushi - since you claim to be a linguist of sorts: what is the Russki for "incomprehensible prat"....I don't suppose it's "Sa-sha", by any chance? ;)
