Zeka het!

My favorite Euromaidan protest slogan is "zeka het," which literally means "prisoner, out!" It references Yanukoch's two stints in jail in his youth.

He wasn't in prison for anti-communist agitation. This is no Ukrainian Nelson Mandela. What I hear (but have not confirmed) is that he was in gang that punched victims out of the blue and stole their fur hats.

Hats, democracy, what's the difference?
