Info on what they have found in his palaces in previous thread: http://www.fark.com/comments/8151971#new

People now asking for food because they discovered a zoo with exotic animals in his "yard".
Gold found, houses, golf course, a huge piece of a (real they say) Greek temple, indoor swimming pool, boats, hovercraft, trailers, lakes, ... .

Many people were instilled with a love and caring for current/world events in grade school. And those of us living in democratic republics do fret over what's going on there right now.

It appears as if he's fled to the North-east regions and the former capitol during the Soviet occupation decades ago.

For all intents and purposes, the Ukrainians won their revolution, though they're going to lose a sizable percentage of their country as it secedes so as to keep ties with Russia.

Also, it's not entirely outside the realm of possibility for the Russians to launch an invasion in the name of 'restoring stability' to the whole of Ukraine.

But, that'll have to wait until the Olympics are over and that gives the Ukrainian people a good chunk of time to get solid control over their military and ensure that such a thing isn't possible.

The only thing that remains to be seen, at least to me, is whether or not the eastern provinces become their own state or if Russia annexes them directly.

Shows how much attention I've been paying to the Olympics, doesn't it?

Yeah, things could get messy pretty quick after Sunday if Russia decides it wants the whole of Ukraine as a buffer state still.

I don't know how many people in this world still exist with the potential to be shocked at the notion of a leader having lavish homes and vast luxuries that are denied the rest of us.

Still, good pics.

According to NBC, they're over two days from now.

I'm not, if that's what you're saying.
What I am surprised about, is that there are still people who didn't believe the possibility of this to be true. Even stranger, they thought Bertuk, the titushki, and the Alfa (sniper?) groups were all non-existent. That's the real shocking fact.

But obviously Corrupted into a MAN through her mastery of the dark powers of bribery, intimidation, and lies.  Now a husk of her former beauty, she instead resembles the shambling corpse of Richard Nixon.

Those headlines say so much about the writers and "publications". About the rest of us? Not so much.

When you're making BuzzFeed look good you are doing it wrong.

That's weird. All this embarrassment is already something of a bad hair day for him I guess, but he's making it even worse by going off the deep end like that.
