As I have mentioned before, Tymoshenko really appears to have suffered a great deal in Yanukovich’s dungeon and now she is clearly “gone fishing”.  The latest telephone leak (thanks SVR, and keep up the great work!) shows her actually suggesting that the Banderites *nuke* the 8 million Russians living in the Ukraine.  She also proposes to make Russia a scorched field.  Let me immediately reassure everybody – the Ukraine does not have nuclear weapons, never had them, never will have them.  You can take that to the bank.  To Tymoshenko’s partial exculpation, she is clearly venting in a fit of frustrated rage and not actually giving orders to a (non existing) Ukrainian military.  Still, this is a very good illustration of how all these freedom loving, smiling, Ukrainian nationalists really think.  Keep in mind that Tymoshenko’s party “Batkivshchyna” (or Fatherland) is by far the most “moderate” (to the extend that any of these Banderites can be considered moderate) and that Klichko’s Udar party is worse, that Tiagnibok’s Freedom Party (aka “Social Nationalist” party) is even worse, and that they all are comparatively sane and moderate when compared to Iarosh’s “Right Sektor” who can only be compared to the Croatian Ustashe or the Hutu Interahamwe.  And its the Right Sektor which currently has all the guns (only small stuff, thanks God, stuff that is only useful to terrorize civilians, not something you could use against the “Polite Armed Men in Green”).

But listen for yourself to that crazy conversation (in Russian, not in Ukrainian, I would add):
