#Maidan Diary: WE ARE ALL FOREIGN AGENTS & EXTREMISTS!

Responses to the “Dictatorship Bill”
…’cause sometimes all you can do is just shake your head
and laugh.

Ukraine has now joined China, Vietnam, Burma and Gambia as a place where social media can land you some serious jail time for slander against a public official, for disseminating extremist materials (slandering said public official through derision/criticism, or otherwise), providing internet access to such materials, creating or containing “content” (the dissemination of which is against the law), amongst other information-related violations.

God forbid we spread the slightest “content” whatsoever. The following are mere vacuous vehicles towards a small humorous reprieve from the topic:

1. “Don’t drive behind me, I’m 5th!”

2.  “Viktor Federovich [President Yanukovych] – may I go to the toilet?”

3.   “And what are you in for?”
“I drove in a column with 6 cars.”

4.  (Combining word play with the “Bomba” meme in bad Ukrainian):
“Careful: Foreign Agent”

5.  “Foreign Agent”

#6.  Please do not “like” our blog. Remember, this is NOT to be construed as “content” in any form. It is completely mindless activity, without content or form. The poster says:
WARNING:
Any post on Facebook, which has been “liked” by more than 5 people without first obtaining the permission of police, is to be treated as “extremism”! 1606917_656481767750536_218089648_n
#7.  Defensive helmets are verboten (police need unfettered access to your skull),
but the bill said nothing about strainers and pots – the latest stylin’ street fad.

Humor turns defiant:

Protesters in Kiev take to streets with mouths taped shut by "dictatorship", helmets and mask
