Yeah, it’s STILL a thing

Hey remember when Maidan cheerleader Timothy Snyder told us how progressive Euromaidan was?  Well, about that.  Had this happened in Russia, it would be all over the news. But Ukraine now supposedly supports “European” values, ergo the story only gets coverage from interested news outlets.  I’m thrilled that Ukrainian voters rejected the far right at the polls, but if they want to be seen as anything other than backward nationalists no different from those they are fighting with in Eastern Ukraine, they had better reject these politics in society as well.

    Ukraine is a deeply religious state. They hold Christian values, which means no faggots. A country can be European and conservative – look at Poland.
