Those Ukrainians

They can surely combine fun – or, rather, irony – with tragedy, Gogol style. The police operation to clean up Maidan was indeed named “Boomerang”. No kidding. I checked several sources. First I thought it was a joke.

Still, Kiev is far but Russia is here, and observing local mass media in action is scary. Last time I saw this sort of distortion was in 1980 during events in Poland. Then Afghanistan around 1981. Mass strikes were called “isolated instances of breaking labour discipline” back then.
