In the past two weeks, adults in Ukraine and Europe (especially those entrusted to run countries and governments) have given us a superb lesson in stupidity and incompetence.
Self interest, selective justice, coercion, ignorance and a complete lack of interest/understanding from Western Europe have all been displayed in the almighty international cock-up known as theAssociation Agreement.
Like never before, Europe’s adults have shown that they are unable to govern, and why a new generation of leaders is desperately needed.
So, while our politicians and diplomats continue their playschool pranks in Parliament and continue to shame our countries and our continent, I am delighted to share this alternative view from Ukraine. A collection of optimistic excellence from some exceedingly talented kids.
There were Stalks (those birds that bring babies), Cossacks, Cats (of course), horses, houses, ducks, rainbows, fields… and many many more colourfully-painted Ukrainian cliches. Yes, there were a few tough-talking adults, some bad haircuts and some questionable musical performances, but who cares because there was even a painting of a marshrutka!
Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy Ukraine “through Children’s eyes”
