Dubinsky was Kolomoiskyi’s little pet. Sharii worked for the Kremlin.

They had different owners, but the essence was the same. Both Dubinsky and Sharii could create and run their own projects in parliament.

Now both have fizzled out.

Palchevskyi also lost out in the local elections. The Kremlin will have to prepare a new project.

Let me remind you: Sharii was a project that was not aimed at Putin’s active supporters, but for those who seem to be for an independent Ukraine.

But for Russian-speaking, Soviet-thinking people, nostalgic for the USSR, sausage and wide trousers. These are lumpens.

But unlike Liashko’s grannies from villages, a “little pet” has a bought electoral group of aunts from Barabashov’s market and the 7th kilometer.

I now generalize, if anything. Because I myself know very intelligent people whom fate has thrown into such markets.

But I’m talking about a tendency.

Now, if, at the insistence of the SBU or the Ukrainian government, the Sharii’s channel is closed, or at least Sharii is restricted of pursuing politics here, the Kremlin will have to launch new projects to influence various segments of the population.

And time goes by. Time is playing on us.
