“Le courage c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; c’est de ne pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant qui passe, et de ne pas faire écho, de notre âme, de notre bouche et de nos mains aux applaudissements imbéciles et aux huées fanatiques ”.” – Djordje Kuzmanovic

Blog - Zhirinovsky on 2006 Ukrainian TV
1st part of video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYe2ZamKQ78
Relations between the West, Russia, Ukraine & the SCO being discussed on a Ukrainian TV programme in 2006. It’s very weird to see the now Ukraine president Petro Poroshenko & his nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok together listening to an energetic Zhirinovsky... Surreal! Nearly a decade later, it is nevertheless very VERY relevant today to pick up on some of the points made on this TV show.
Zhirinovsky might be seen as a clown in Russian politics, but some of the points that he made were very perceptive. I do not condone or agree necessarily with the whole content, but the points made back in 2006 are astonishingly pertinent in a number of political areas, especially in understanding the geopolitical mindset & the lead up to events in 2014. It is a shame that Zhirinovsky’s bombastic comments about China & Russia & SCO nuclear might & invincibility, hinder what otherwise some valid & thought-provoking points.
Notice at the beginning of the show, Zbigniew Brzezinski refers to Russia as a no-man's land between Europe & China. That should have been a serious warning alert to Russia, but who really paid notice to it then?

2.32 “… it in Brussels, they are going to pack it in a box, your new elite!”
Fast forward to late 2013, the unboxed elite were at Maidan square once more.
3.42 “Same thing happened on your Maidan, half of them fraudsters & scoundrels”
Ditto for Feb 2014 events but substantially worse in format with Oleh Tyahnybok & co leading the way forward.
6.36 comment about Russian Black Sea Fleet,
Oh, the irony since Russia has now Crimea & a Black Sea Fleet that is being overhauled & modernised rapidly.
8.32 comment about future gas dispute btw Russia & Ukraine in 2008, “So you are going to freeze”. >
Ummh, it did happen not in 2008 but in 2009.
