As reported by the Russian newspaper Segodnya, foreign advisers and businessmen are jumping the ship in packs.

They either know that default is coming ,or their pockets are full, and it's time to reap the rewards of a few months’ work.

Good bye!

These folk who were being branded the saviors of Ukraine, who were supposed to bring the country closer to the elusive European dream, are now showing their true colors.

Translation via Fort Russ:

Just a few hours ago the honest heart of the Estonian girl Jaanika Merilo could not stand the sad spectacle of what is happening in Ukraine , and she left the post of Deputy Minister of Economy.

This is not the first case of this kind. Earlier the Ukro-American Alexander Borovik and a Georgian Jaba Ebanoidze had resigned. Even the infamous "hawk" John McCain had enough brain power to refuse to cooperate with Poroshenko regime.

...

Soon it became evident that exported from Tbilisi [Alexander Kvitashvili from Georgia], the head of the Ministry of Health does not understand anything about healthcare, and the hot Estonian girl is occupied with selfies in the "nude" genre instead of economy.

...

The flight of foreign advisers cannot be considered desertion: it seems that the West had already given up on Ukraine, thereby giving the go-ahead to junta helpers to abandon positions. It seems that Ukraine is really being prepared for default, since advisors in the economic sector are leaving their posts: no one wants to be a scapegoat.

...

No matter what, but the wisest people in Ukrainian politics and business already understand the inevitability of the collapse of the country, and are taking up seats on rescue boats. Some even have to give up part of their assets, but it's a small price to pay. As they say in the East: "Praise God, that he took only the money!"
