Zhirinovsky Gave an EXCELLENT, Prophetic Speech About Ukraine - in 1998! (Video)

Love him or hate him, he is brilliant, a great orator, and one of the smartest people on the Russian political stage.

In this blistering speech from 1998 he argues that the newly formed country of Ukraine is completely controlled by the US, that it is not a real country and never was, that Kiev is Russian, and that Gorbachev is a traitor.  He explains the history of the Ukraine, how parts of it were seized by the Catholic church working through Polish proxies.  It is good stuff.  Well worth a listen.

The interesting thing is that what he is saying here all became widely discussed and understood only 16 years later when Ukraine broke into civil war.

Well worth a listen.
