Why most western journos didn’t tweet what Poroshenko said during the debate
Want to know why Moscow correspondents and just about every western journo didn’t tweet what Poroshenko said during the “debate” today?
BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW UKRAINIAN.
Somehow, the requirement of knowing the language of a country you cover goes out the window for Ukraine.
I recall an “expert” on Ukraine asking a Ukrainian organization that was tweeting in Ukrainian to switch to Russian so she could understand the tweets.
I’m almost surprised non of the journos didn’t complain about Poroshenko speaking in Ukrainian…
