    "Cynical banderites...I mean, bandits"--Poroshenko's curious slip of tongue

    By J.Hawk

    Several news outlets (and not a few Russian blogs) are discussing Poroshenko's difficulty in choosing the right (wrong?) words when discussing the case of the SBU officer alllegedly killed by militants of Kolomoysky-linked Dnepr-1 battalion a few days ago. The video shows quite clearly that Poroshenko initially referred to the killers as "cynical Banderites", then paused, presumably realizing what he had just blurted out (I mean, the pause is long enough to see the wheels slowly turning in Poroshenko's head), and "corrected" himself by emphatically saying "bandits". I can see the confusion--Banderites, bandits, what's the diff? Ukraine's self-described patriots will surely agree.
