I came across a graphic illustration of a contributor's differences between the three Slavonic brothers. The main problem with Ukraine is that they keep changing chefs all the time! Too many cooks spoil the broth. Especially a succession of thoroughly bad cooks. First chef was a crapshoot, an ex Bolshevik. Pineapple face Yuschenko was never quite the same following alleged poisoning in the tough Ukrainian politics. Opinion appears to be unanimous among ethnic Ukrainians that fourth chef Yanukovych was a thief. Poroshenko was too rich rich to not have been a thief. Last chef is graduate of Kiev's acting school

Russia kept the cooks to a minimum: one excellent chef with a hmmmm not so bad assistant in the person of Medvedev.

Belarus played it safe with one chef.

I have the sneaking suspicion that a lot of people in this world are getting rather bored with (or even hostile to) those three countries (one of which was entirely unknown to most of us before the current war).


Russia has always been a pain in the blank.

Ukraine has always had a rather unsavory reputation. (Let's be honest.)

And who in the blank even knew Belarus existed?

With gas prices rising.
With food prices rising.
With another variant possibly causing mandates again.
With violent crime still raging.

A lot of Americans may be thinking: "Good luck to you, President Z. I hope that you guys kick the Russians back to kingdom come. But I personally am exhausted and must now move on."

You do sum it up right. I was having a long chat by phone earlier today with my junior sister, and the conversation went along the same lines: pain and costs at every turn, and few can even pick out the three Slavonic brothers on a map!

Funny thing is me and my sister came to the conclusion that Fu Manchu in Beijing may be the only one smiling through it all. Because Russia is on the ropes, Fu Manchu probably gets to buy Russia's natural resources at bargain prices. Because most western companies are leaving Russia, Fu Manchu is quickly stepping in to fill the void.
