    That is some crazy shit you have there.   What basis for it?   You do know she was jailed on "corruption" charges largely because she was Yanukovitch's main political rival.  If you want an actual gangster it is the new Prime Minister in Crimea AKA the Goblin.

      She was jailed because she did it. And yes it was also political.  She's totally corrupt. Her Wikipedia page is full of things. The whole place is corrupt yet you get the same cast of characters going for the presidency over and over. In the US they would be destroyed by the press yet you give them a free pass. Hell, Romney got killed for not releasing tax returns. When she showed up at the Maiden, no one cared. But if you want to back the "gas princess" go right ahead. The future of Ukraine looks bleak indeed.

    •  Oh, she was corrupt alright. But they didn't (0+ / 0-)

      want to jail her for what she actually did. Maybe it was hard to prove or maybe too many powerful people were involved. So they came up with some ridiculous tramped up charges.
