 Yanukovych Promised a Minister to Rip his Head Off After the Elections

Yesterday President Yanukovych held an all Ukrainian council on the development of the real sector of the economy.

During the meeting the head of state advoctaed for the improvement of the structure of the Cabinet of Ministers and instructed the government to develop a set of long-term programms. The event ended with rough address of Mr. Yanukovych to Minister of Economic Development and Trade Petro Poroshenko, reports Kommersant Ukraine.

The Minister asked Viktor Yanukovych to support the introduction of utilization duty on imported cars as a response to the same duty introduced by Russia on September 1. "We now have a unique opportunity to protect the national machine manufacturers - just set a just utilization duty. We need to to adopt the draft as well as pass the law. The draft was adopted a week ago but the importers are going to different institutions and write groundless notes and impede the process. Mister President, I ask for your help", said the Minister.

What came next was unexpected:

"Something always hinders a bad dancer," said the President (ironic Ukrainian saying that testicles always hinder a bad dancer)

"Well... I wanted to... I am sorry...," stumbled Poroshenko.

"What are you telling here? Who are you telling it to? I will rip your heads off, very soon, right after the elections," fumed the head of state.

"Oh well, thank you. We will act without your help then," replied the Minister.
