What does Yanukovych know about "Liberty"?

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

...good thing this isn't in the Politics section, because I would have a few more words to add.

A reply from one of my FB friends from Ukraine: he knows a lot about it, he got it twice!
