And the matter is not at all in the color of banners or belonging to any kind of opposition. Although, judging by the messages sent to me from the editorial office, which are beyond the comments, then I really opposition. Even your First Channel.
Yes, on the “First”, all Ukrainians can put pots on their heads as much as they like and tell them that if not tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow, that’s all, cranks.
And in this they are right in their own way. Vyshivankov with us and Klitschko and Lightly they have plenty. About how you Gaidar and Sobchak ... Ah, Gaidar is now with us. Everything is to our shore, their wood lice ... But you also have it, and you should not deny it, yes.
But the "first" has its own Ukraine, and I have my own. Somewhat different, but what is. And the fact that it does not all fall in ecstasy from the name "Bandera" and do not pound their heads against the floor at the sound of "schenevmerly" - this is just an interesting moment. The mind, like its absence, they bring together. The question is who and how. I'm just for those who brings the mind together, and who does not stand out bile at the sight of the Ukrainian flag.
What does it matter which flag: red with a sickle and a hammer, yellow-blue, black-white-yellow or white-blue-red? Geniuses and idiots are enough under any of them.
More than two years ago, I began with merry stories about what was going on behind the scenes of the Rada. We laughed together. Well, it seems to have matured, and now I just want to show Ukraine normal people. He does not want the “first” to show - well, okay, we'll get along.
I will tell you to start about happiness and luck. Is it the same? Maybe lucky person to the fullest?
We have such a city. And the little man is complicated. Well, it's hard to call him just a peasant. Therefore, I will not particularly intrigue, and with my thoughts you should "suggest" something to you. In our Rada holiday: a new source of income for deputies. And this source was opened not only by the deputy, but by the head of the party and faction!
The chairman of the parliamentary faction of the Radical Party, Oleg Lyashko, declared 571 000 hryvnia winnings in the Ukrainian national lottery. In fact, Lyashko declared three wins: 283 560, 153 485 and 134 000 hryvnia. In rushing, right? Only you can envy.
That's the truth, say money to money. Something's not swimming here, but Pan Lyashko seems to be doing nothing, but swimming towards him. Or does?
How else to explain 740 thousand dollars, 90 thousand euros and 890 thousand hryvnia, which he showed in the declaration? It is clear that not everyone can look at it, but who can - he will not lie to me. There are tsiferki such.
Now, in the course, "the card will trample" all the people's deputies ...
The truth is, here is a house and a couple of land plots for 15 000 000 hryvnias, which Oleg bought on the occasion recently, are causing questions. It is not good, of course, to look into someone else's pocket, just for yourself. For the future, I wonder how or how you can earn so much? Probably Lyashko "unloads cars somewhere," according to an old specialty ... Or not cars?
And why is it that money and work don't go in one hand? One job, the other money.
The rest of the "population", well, before people called them, even for the use of heat energy can not pay. People came to work, but there is no money. Moreover, Kyivenergo writes that we owe 1,3 billion hryvnia (for heating it is 741 250 000 hryvnia, the debt for hot water is 582 140 000 hryvnia). The housing and utilities organizations are still 682 million hryvnia. All in all, Kiev owes 2,6 billion hryvnia for heat ...
Already frost on the spine ...
And Kiev is no longer dolphinarium "Nemo" ... October 22 all beloved dolphinarium is closed. By decision of the Pechersk district court of Kiev. For inappropriate use of land. The dolphins lasted a year without sewage, but could not argue with the land. What a dolphinarium to woodlice, when you can build a beautiful wasteland there! It's a shame. Sorry for the dolphins. They are smart. And honest. And people are sorry that they loved to stare.
But you can talk endlessly about Kiev filth for a long time. To be honest, tired. Smack such that it is necessary to clean the mandibles every time. And it is like extra expenses.
So I will show you another strange Ukrainian town. The weirdest of all that I saw during my vacation.
Welcome to Kamenetz-Podolsky with me. One of the oldest cities in our land. Perhaps the most ancient. If you believe the archaeologists, then for 10 000 years BC here someone lived and ate mammoths. Well, the city itself was ranked as 9 century AD. But история there is on the Internet, we do not need it. To whom it is interesting, he will find and read everything himself.
The city itself is simply enchanting, as are the people living there. But they, however, "with a cherry on the cake," or, in our opinion, with a cockroach in my head. Yes, even with how! African, no less. This I tell you as a special. On cockroaches.
I will break the charm of Kamenetz into three parts.
Part one. Patriotic.
I arrived in the city already during the day for which a huge “thank you” to our “Ukrzaliznytsia”, patroness of queues and snails. It's like you Railways, but in the worst incarnation. Slow and rotten. But I will walk along this terrible structure some other time, I don’t want to spoil my mood.
I arrived on a very special day - the Day of the Liberation of Ukraine from the Nazis. Not a round date, but still. I wanted to, really wanted to see how it would not look like in Kiev. From Kiev, I confess, already sick.
And late. It is a pity, but everyone has already gone. The day was nothing according to the weather, so that all residents and guests used it to the fullest. Well, I, too, of course, in accordance with the task.
What I did not see in the city at all. For the whole day I did not see a single already familiar black and red cloth. Not a single leaflet or agitation. Nothing, which would remind of pravosek or Bandera and Petliura fans, although it was here, for example, that the army of Simon Petliura completed his combat journey.
I’ll say right away that I didn’t have a guide-guide because I found it, I found it.
This is the only thing of the modern. And "Heavenly hundred", and those who ... did not come from the ATO. No comment, and here's why.
And this is a monument to the soldiers-liberators Kamenetz-Podolskogo. There is a difference, if in my opinion.
Wreaths - wreaths, but as if fresh flowers will be more.
Speaking of decommunization and all of this:
I am sure you will like this approach to the question.
Sadly, modestly, but goose bumps from numbers, to be honest.
Well, here, too, everything is clear, is not it?
This is another place. Generally kamenchan such an approach to the memory of fellow countrymen - remember all. And this is respectful.
In general, in the city of memorial places dedicated to the Great Patriotic War is not just a lot. And everything is in a very decent condition, there are no traces of vandalism, paint, and similar disgraces. Not Kiev or Lviv definitely.
This, as the editors have already enlightened me, your Black Knives was noted.
Finishing the first part, I want to say only one thing: in order not to talk about complete degradation and other democratic pleasures there, dear Russians and residents of other republics, you take one thing for an axiom: Kiev and Lviv are not all of Ukraine. There's just a percentage of ducks more. But in ordinary Ukraine everything can be like this: calm and dignified.
And on one monument, doused with paint, we have much more of these: well-groomed and with fresh flowers. Just about this normal people do not scream from TV screens, do not earn their ratings. This is just a memory, but we can remember. At least, have not forgotten how. Yes, and not soon forget how, believe it or not.
Here is another proof. "Heroes in prisons" is about all sorts of Aydarovsk and tornadov heroes who are now prisoners. And please, black on red (straight in company colors) opinion. Good and capacious.
Then I finish the patriotic part, and turn to the second part.
Part two. Just a city.
Kamyanets-Podilsky, who arrived to him for the first time, simply kills outright with his purity. And technical quirks. How do you think this is a structure?
That's right, bike parking. I have never seen anything like this in any city. Well, you can simply and without spending too much metal, make the arc? Without the emblem of the city, without artistic forging? Of course it is possible. But not here. Here they strive to show with all their might that they can and can. And they love their city.
Remove the pillar with modern signs, and take a dip back on the 250 years. Not a home is a time machine. And there are many. And all in a very good condition.
Cobblestone as in Lviv, but here's the problem: not a single stone was everted.
And it amused me. Seeing parking for greats, I thought that the wheels were honored here. An, no.
Such a bicycle path is a bone walker, with a slope a not weak and sharp turn. And around the corner - a test of the ability to ride in the form of a pillar.
Local extreme zone. Catcher on the cable. How much you go - so much yelling.
He looked down, thought ... and began to look for a detour. I was just on the wrong side. But I am a normal hero, and, as you know, they always go around.
You know, and Raphael, too, used to draw on the bottoms of wine barrels ...
And this is a monument to me. To the tourist. So it is, everyone is open-mouthed.
Tavern and Cave Monument. Well, coffee.
You will laugh, but this is a sightseeing bus. Or an armored personnel carrier. And there are a few of these. Apparently, rolling on the pavement every day is the death of any suspension, except for the military.
Monument soft spin. Previously, it was either a Lutheran, or a Catholic church. But then it was taken up by the Orthodox and slightly modernized. Look poppy funny, is not it?
Part Three The fortress.
But, of course, the main attraction is the fortress. How much it was built, rebuilt, only experts can say, but beauty ...
By the way, this is a fortress-movie hero. She participated in a heap of films, somewhere she played herself, somewhere she did not. The most famous role - La Rochelle in the movie "The Three Musketeers". Here!
The old castle is the quintessence of everything. Undiluted This is a must see and touch. Everything is at the mercy of reenactors, they are here and shaman.
And this is the 16 century field bread maker. Clay Now do not tell, historians, that Napoleon introduced the first field kitchens. We were the first!
By the way, the fire is not just burning. His baker spread his bread and baked bread. And I also treated myself, and I tell you, quite interesting. Something between lavash and flatbread. Yummy.
Here, in fact, the whole tour of the Ukrainian city of Kamenetz-Podolsk. Short, of course, but alas. I took, of course, a lot. After all, the beauty around. And the people, by the way. With faces.
I will tell you so, my dear readers. Let everyone sees his own. They will not be remembered for the night, but if someone wants to see in Ukraine only dirt and snores from the Rada and all kinds of "heroatalons" grinning into television cameras, is your will. Here, as they say, you will not be forced by love.
But I repeat once again - Kiev and Lviv are not all of Ukraine. And our baboons from the Rada, crooked-language "hero ATO" - this is not the whole nation.
And who wants to see what I try to show you, well-groomed and clean monuments, fresh flowers on the graves of ours and your ancestors, who together beat one enemy, people who do not see the Mordor hordes in the east - then yes, I, your voluntary but a very diligent assistant, I will continue to show you another Ukraine.
I really hope you find it helpful to see it. Because I, an old cockroach, still believe that sooner or later we will become people and we will not visit each other tanks.
So good day to all of you and the belief that it will be so! And, as always, until the next meeting!
