Couple of gems from DoniNews quoting a guy in Kiev who should perhaps now be watching his back
This was stated by Sergey Belashko, the director of the Agency of Social Communications, at a press conference in Kiev, reports The Politnavigator.
‘If we look at the relationship of subordination, we can speak of neo-feudal relations. When a person tries to get a post, the first question to him is whose you are. Either he is a man of Poroshenko, or Yatsenyuk, or someone else. The situation is the same down to the sub-rayon level. Even posts of a rural surveyor are not taken without connections - either it is a daughter of the chairman of the village council, or a niece or a friend's girlfriend. Having taken this position, a person must pay his patron an administrative rent. And the rent is an integral part of the functioning of the political class,’ explains the expert the situation in Ukraine.
Such a forecast was presented by Sergey Belashko, he director of the Agency of Social Communications, at a press conference in Kiev, reports The Politnavigator.
‘The main strategic error made by the Ukrainian regime in recent months is that, I do not know why, but they thought that time was on their side. However, time is working against them. In fact, it has already worked, and they have run out of it. Now, within just a few weeks, we will obviously see a fundamental change in the disposition. Either Ukraine will start the implementation of the Minsk Agreements and take painful and unpopular decisions, or it will lose the support of the West. At least, the support of the European Union, as the US support is of a different nature. Ukraine is just a small fragment of a mosaic map of the American politics,’ pointed out the political scientist.
