Poroshenko Disgraced Himself Due to Ignorance of the Geography of Ukraine November 5, 2016 News Translated by Ollie Richardson 01:22:00 05/11/2016 Tvzvezda.ru Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko disgraced himself during a speech at an economic forum in Lvov, declaring that the Ivano-Frankovsk region isn’t Galicia. The video of his blunder was published online. The Ukrainian leader said that along with him came a resident of the Prykarpattya, energy Minister Igor Nasalik. And, as was said by Poroshenko, Nasalik is not Galician because he’s a native of the Ivano-Frankovsk region. The hall immediately began to correct the President of Ukraine: this region is still a part of Galicia. Poroshenko was both surprised and confused, and hurried to cover up the embarrassment. “Well, thank God,” the Ukrainian leader exhaled. Copyright © 2016. All Rights Reserved.
