Proving once again to be one of free Ukraine's staunchest supporters:

Poetic Justice

Valentina Lisitsa during interview with Russia Today was cut off immediately when she mentioned she supported the Euromaidan. LoL

So much for freedom of speech in Russia.

One just can't make stuff like this up. LoL

WOW! The moment @ValLisitsa says she supported #Euromaidan #Russia's RT immediately "loses" her signal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6ZiFErxRMg&feature=youtu.be&t=8m39s ? by @MatBabiak

They probably would have been quite happy at RT if they let her get about two more sentences out.  Her detractors say that she is lying about being an early supporter of Maidan.

...certainly not a "fan" of Wikipedia bullpoop (isn't it all pretty much just that...?  ::))...nevertheless, unearthed this obscure little gem that should send a chill down the spine of all real Americans...

"...with the thought that she was 'just another blonde Russian pianist,' Lisitsa almost gave up on her career as a concert pianist, and contemplated working as a translator for the CIA [ ??? ??? ???], but changed her mind at the last minute..."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentina_Lisitsa

...the more you know...

...she's butt-Fugly, too...

Her agent found a better picture...

BUTT she continues to spin how she has right to say whatever she wants...

BTW - Anyone in Spokane, WA. Thats her next schedule appearance. Maybe folks there will try and voice their opinion aswell.
