Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom
« on: 19:10 05-Sep-2019 »
The film is becoming famous in Hong Kong now because of the on-going democratic movement.
It's time for Ukrainian Government to get more in touch with Hong Kong Citizen, selling right of abode, property, government bond etc.

In Russia we only had two TV channels. Channel One was propaganda. Channel Two consisted of a KGB officer telling you: Turn back at once to Channel One. Yakov Smirnoff

Things move very slowly out of Ukraine unless there is money, free stuff, or a rich foreigner involved  :P

This movie was produced by Netflix.

Kind of an over generalization considering several Ukrainians are listed as some of the world's richest people.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ukrainians_by_net_worth

I think more accurate would be that an average Hong Kong citizen is wealthier than an average Ukrainian citizen.

For example, a little quick googling reveals that a livable salary in HK is around $6500 per month for a single person with around half of that going to rent/mortgage.

$6500 is a lot compared to what an average Ukrainian university grad will make if they work a normal job in Kiev. If every dollar of that $6500 goes towards basic living needs (food/rent/transport/utilities) with little to no disposable income or savings then what are we really talking about? Similar to Americans a HK citizen might be one paycheck away from living on the street.

I'm not sure what you are trying to compare between HK and Ukraine. They are apples and oranges.

It was available there before, as the movie is on Youtube, but only in light of recent events there did they stage large public viewings.

Hong Kongers are raging against a machine they can't beat unlike Ukraine. But like Ukraine, the world will let them sort it out themselves but eventually the CCP will win. Also there will be no Russian invasion to throw a monkey wrench into the works.
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

Ireland was part of the UK. In 1922, the south became Ireland (Irish Republic) while the north became known as Northern Ireland. It was therefore, and remains today, a part of the UK.

The 1980s to which you refer concerns attempts to get Northern Ireland to rejoin Ireland.

The Hong Kong of today is quite different from Ireland's 1980s situation as the citizens are seeking freedom or, ideally, independence from China.
