“The unquiet Ukrainian.”
Send in the clowns.
12 JULY—Interesting. Few readers are likely to give any more of a damn about Andriy Melnyk that I do, but let us take note together: The Kiev regime’s ambassador to Berlin has just been dismissed. This was reported a few days ago in Bild, the German tabloid. I read of the Bild report on RT.
I have taken note of Melnyk on several occasions since the Russian Federation launched its intervention into Ukraine on 24 February. The man is a body part The Scrum, being a publication for the whole family, will not name. He makes Liz Truss, who has to be the stupidest foreign secretary in modern British history, come over like Clemenceau.
Melnyk has been kicking around the foreign ministry in Kiev for most of this century. He was first appointed ambassador to the Federal Republic in December 2014 by Petro Poroshenko, who assumed the presidency after the U.S.–cultivated coup the previous February. The chronology is not quite clear, but he appears to have been reappointed to the same post two years later. And there he has ever since served, a man who has met, at least to date, the approval of the Zelensky regime and, to one or another extent, the regime in Washington that controls the Zelensky regime.
