I just watched the last part of the recent PBS interview with The Ukrainian PM and couldn’t believe how he finished the interview with Margaret Warner……

This is Margaret’s response to his bizarre answer to her question….

The hyper-kinetic Yatsenyuk, who has been nicknamed “The Rabbit” for his uncanny resemblance to the Soviet version in Winnie the Pooh, saved his best line for last — when I asked him what he thought it would take for Ukraine to prevail against the Russian bear. He leaned back and took a breath. “In my childhood, my mom told me a number of fairy tales. And the bear is a very good animal in Ukrainian fairy tales,” he mused. “But in reality, it’s better to have a bear somewhere in the zoo.”

“In a zoo?” I asked, not sure I’d heard him right. “The zoo,” he said. He needed say no more.
