Euromaidan in Kiev – “To The Barricades!” – Invasion of The Madhouse
Originally published on our Telegram channel Beorn And The Shieldmaiden
German 2014 satirical ZDF television-show “Die Anstalt” (The Madhouse) play out political cynicism and absurdity of the event in Ukraine 10 years ago
A few days ago a protester in Serbia, either really ignorant or sold-out, sported a flag with “Euromaidan” on it.
The absurdity of this is off the charts!
So, let’s return to the events of the Euromaidan in Kiev 10 years ago, which lead to the tragedy we are witnessing now.
Let’s gaze back through the prism of satire to ZDF on the 15th of March 2014 – 3 days before Crimea in a referendum decided to return home to Russia.
The brutal honesty and the razor-sharp multi-layered humour of this program leaves no doubt that the events in Kiev were correctly understood in Europe.
Enjoy the show, and remember the freedom of speech, which is now unimaginable on any mainstream Television channel in today’s “European Garden” – or, as Hitler preferred to call it “The Blessed Pastures of Europe”.
Nowadays, the whole program, had anyone been allowed to produce it in the first place, would have immediately been banned as “Putin’s Propaganda” threatening “our democracy” – yes, criminal charges would probably have been the result.
2014 is only 10 years ago, nevertheless watching this show resembles something from another world.
