A Good Example

Ukraine is celebrating the Day of the Armed Forces today. The war is going on and the past couple of months haven’t been good. 

During the festivities in Kiev, a man raised his arm in a Nazi salute and yelled “Ukraine above all!” He was immediately arrested. Nobody anticipates the President to give a speech explaining how this was a good guy. To the contrary, everybody knows he’ll give a talk to condemn this kind of thing in the strongest terms. The media on all sides of the political spectrum expressed horror and condemnation that this happened. 

And it was just one fellow at a huge event.
