Exactly.
I hope the girls will be satisfied with the results of their highly motivated strategy.

Re: Ukranian Protest

If this is what they do to protest, I wonder what they will do while partying

For some reason Blick dedicates half a page to these Ukrainian protests every second week or so ... one becomes addicted . Needless to say, all guys are focused on that page

Honestly, do they really protest? to me it looks more like exhibitionism in disguise.

Re: Ukranian Protest

These women have been imprisoned, abducted and abused by the security services in a country where the opposition leader is lying sick in jail and they are using the best way they know to gain attention. Its working.

If you have ever read anything about them, you'd know that they are highly motivated, intelligent and articulate individuals. It is way more than exhibitionism

Honestly, is there a difference?

Isn't everybody who carries their protest onto the streets to some extent doing it because they want to be seen?

These women are just taking it one step further.

If you're going to do it, you do it right. They're playing the protest game as it should be.

As it was said, they are highly motivated, intelligent and articulate individuals--but could they even fathom that their plight would make it all the way to EF!

You are right, but the unusual thing about it is obviously that they flash their beautiful naked parts to the world. Don't get me wrong, it is not that I dislike it

To my understanding they want to protest against women used as sex objects but dressing (or undressing ) like they do contradicts the purpose. But this is only my opinion. The bottom line is one way or another there are always women breasts in the Blick news

And your opinion is wrong.....

The group was set up to promote womens rights in Ukraine and they would argue that they are using their femininity to do that as it is the only thing in Ukraine that could possibly get the attention of the world. In other words, they are exploiting the system the are trying to change in order to draw attention to it - they are saying "Why is it that we smart, well-educated women can only get your attention by getting our breasts out?" And they seem to be right.

Saying "They are protesting against exploitation but they are getting naked so that's a contradiction" misses the point so badly, I'm afraid
