Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich,
We have learned that you want to send troops to Crimea, to protect the rights of the Russian-speaking population.
In this regard, we have a major request – send troops to the Vologda region. We’re all entirely Russian-speaking and our rights are very much infringed. Our patients cannot get the drugs and treatment they need, the quality of education keeps declining every year, clubs and children’s groups keep closing, and our agriculture is almost destroyed. We’re all suffering.
“As we say in Odesa…” is the beginning line of many an anecdote.
Odesa, Ukraine’s capital of humour and creativity, since 1972 has been hosting the annual festival of humor, Humorina. For this and other reasons Odesa was known as the “capital of humor” even in the Soviet Union.
Russian-speaking Odesites decide it’s time to tell Putin to go home.
0:45 Hello? Vladimir? Good day to you sir.
0:52 Just so you know, Vladimir –
0:54 neighbors don’t behave that way even in a communal flat in Odesa
0:58 so flush the toilet, turn off the lights – and go home.
1:03 Go home, Vladimir!
2:33 Odesa on the line. I am a doctor, a sexopathologist
2:39 Honestly, I work in hospital #10.
2:43 Vladimir, listen. You’re over 60.
2:46 You ain’t got what it takes for Crimea much less Ukraine.
2:49 Best for you to go home, Vladimir
