Mr. Bershidsky assures us as an ‘insider’ with many contacts in the Ukrainian Coup government, in its many iterations, that it is all those corrupt self-seeking Ukrainians, who are at fault for the 40% inflation rate of 2015? It’s not the picture of those pensioners reduced to penury that pricks your conscience, no! Its all those Western or Westernizing political/economic actors, bureaucrats, Neo-Liberals and other Free Market/Austerity riff-Raff, imported to save the Coup from itself- have failed to root out the endemic corruption of Post-Soviet life.
Like Pilate, he washes his hands of his record of support,his record of Coup Apologetics and Putin hysterics, that all have been for naught. Those Ukrainians are no longer worth his time! Even a call to the dull witted political hack Joe Biden led to what? his wholehearted support over the phone! Its called a kiss off Mr. Bershidsky ,as you well know. This isn’t your first nor will it be your last bad political bet. Except that you can’t seem to rid yourself of a certain residual guilt, of course not over the lives lost in pursuit of your shared ambition to check to evil Putin, and bring Ukraine into the Neo-Liberal fold. Where are Nuland, Pyatt, NATO, The EU and The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies or your sometime allies Right Sector and Svoboda?
