A new information tragedy in Ukraine. It started so innocently: the nationally conscious patriotic website Nedelya.ua organized a survey. The question was: which politician would you entrust with governing your country?

41664 votes were cast. The results were a knock-out blow for the organizers–a full and crushing victory for Vladimir Putin. Treason!

Let’s look at the results:

Putin: 84% (34,905 votes)
Lukashenko: 5% (2032)
Xi Jinping 2% (820)
Zhirinovskiy 2% (708)
Poroshenko 1% (538 votes)
Merkel 1% (430 votes)
Marie Le Pen 1% (426 votes)
Nazarbayev 1% (318 votes)
Obama 1% (244 votes)
Timoshenko 0% (176)
Lyashko 0% (170)
Yatsenyuk 0% (158)
Kolomoysky 0% (150)
Simonenko 0% (130)
Kuchma 0% (86)
Yanukovych 0% (116)
Tigipko 0% (76)
Kravchuk 0% (32)
Yushchenko 0% (32)
