Oliver Carroll has allowed himself one of the most idiotic and uninformed comparisons on Twitter…
The term “animal show” was likely inspired by “zveriachi bobyt’ia” (animalistic beatings), a term coined by the Ukrainian media, who were almost ubiquitously for the Maidan. It was almost like the owners of the media supported what was happening in central Kiev. Also, the revolution was not just televised but it was properly organized with media support, buses, food, blankets, tents, portable toilets etc. Furthermore, the state apparatus was paralyzed by sabotage an inaction.
The Russians in fact have more self worth because they would not wreck their country like the Ukrainians did. Imagine if anyone tried Maidan in Ollie’s native United Kingdom, how long would he last? Besides, this British interloper appears to support the opposition tactic of drawing out the kiddies, that is mobilizing teenagers for protest. I think the Russians are masochists allowing this creature to live and work in Russia.
And also, the claims that children were beaten are in themselves a propaganda tactic. In Kiev, it was later discovered that many of those beaten children were over 30.
