I don't want to invade the EU thread with Eastern Barbarians Politics and I had no my own political thread for a long time so here it is. Please, behave. I want it to be a nice place.

If it is in UEFA and\or Eurovision song contests than it is Europe so we can discuss Turkey, Kazakhstan, Israel and other 100% European countries here.

To get it started. I am ready to answer any questions regarding Ukrainian internal politics if anyone is interested.

I wonder, does the latest russian road trip to Syria, along with its "international volunteers" ease up the situation in East Ukraine?

Filled with stuff which probably only makes sense to people from Australia & NZ. Seeing as I like to occasionally invade the Europe & American politics threads, it'd be nice to have a place where you can discuss how things are done differently in your own country & compare.

It is much calmer last few weeks. There are no artillery strikes, few small arms firefights + "mine war". I doubt that it will end in a lasting peace but so far it looks like an actual ceasefire.


As for Australia -it is a joke and Eurovision song contest reference joke but why should it be a bad topic to learn news from Australia? :)

Ukraine had local elections. They are still counting but results are more or less known.

Some highlights
1) 46.6% turnout. Some may say it is OK for local councils voting but I wanted to see more.
2) President's party got 10%-30% depending on a region. Something is wrong with my junta. To be serious Poroshenko is losing support
Russian Agents I mean "Opposition Bloc" (former Yanukovitch's "Party of Regions") still got 15-40% in South-Eastern Ukraine. Meh, but they had 70%+ in 2010 local elections so I think it counts as progress
Many votes are lost because they went for small parties that failed to pass 5% threshold That means there are demand for brand new parties.
Right Sector and PM's party didn't participate. Official reasons are "there are no sense to participate in corrupt elections" and  "We want to focus on working in the government and doing reforms". Real reason is their abysmal ratings.
Few new mayors. Most large cities will have old corrupted thieves in charge Too many old idiots voted, too many young idiots ignored elections

I might pop in here from time to time as an "australian representative", heh. There's certainly interesting things occurring in the Balkan regions, that's for sure.

Putin is the only Russian that doesn't say they approve of Putin - because he is an honourable man and wishes to give the opposition a chance.

Because 146 % is local russian meme.
During duma elections in 2011 on federal channel the voting results were shown, and in some regions the sum of percents magically surpassed the 100.
 Like : 58,99 % voted for united Russia, 32 % for communist party 23 % for liberal democratic party, 1,46 % for patriots of Russia, 9,32 voted for apple, and some guys  for right deed.  And the highest of overall percents surpassing 100 was 146
