Dear Russia


Dear Russia,

You definitely don’t know me, but I’m writing to beg that you please don’t cut off the gas supply to Ukraine on January 1. Without gas, I won’t be able to cook on the stove, have hot water, or even have heat in my home.

I know Ukraine owes you a lot of money – 2 billion dollars to be exact – but it is the middle of winter, not to mention a day for celebration when said deadline must be met. Can’t the deadline be extended for some time in an act of compassion?

I wonder if this note will have any affect on you whatsoever, or if I should scurry to the market tomorrow in hopes of buying an electric kettle, space heater, and extra blankets? Please try to come to an agreement with this poor country soon because if not, this little popsicle might not make it.

  1. 2 Billion??

    What no Craigslist for cheap goods in the Ukraine – WTF?? 🙂

    I think your next post should be a top ten list of all the reasons to never visit Ukraine in the winter.

    What’s the return policy on those items? I would def. go buy them and then return them after.

    Yeah, seriously. Just checked some news and it looks like they might be coming to an agreement – I hope!

    UPDATE: We still have it, but we are running off reserves… and accused of stealing gas
