Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has invited former British prime minister and Iraq War criminal Tony Blair to join his "International Advisory Council on Reforms". According to Interfax

The Council was set up by the president in May 2015. It includes Elmar Brok, the head of the European Parliament (EP) Committee on Foreign Affairs; MEP Jaczek Saryusz-Wolski; Karl Bildt, Swedish ex-foreign minister; Slovak ex-prime minister Mikulas Dzurinda; Lithuanian ex-prime minister Andrius Kubilius; and Anders Aslund, a Swedish economist.

Blair recently resigned as the Middle East envoy representing the US, Russia, the UN and the EU. His tenure as a "peace envoy" is widely regarded as a complete failure. We're sure he'll do wonders for Ukraine.
