Kabul Did It, Why Can't Kyiv?

Hat's off to Kabulians (Kabulites?), who not only charged the Mayor for corruption, but terminated his job and sentenced him to four years in prison. He also has to give back the USD 16,000 he misappropriated.
More here: Afghanistan court sentences Kabul mayor for corruption (BBC). There's an arrest warrant out, and he's on the "lam". Imagine how full the Kyiv jails would be if the corruption bar was dropped to a paltry USD 16,000 -- wouldn't even cover ONE of the Oligarch's watches.

It would ostensibly be more efficient for the Ukrainian society to maintaing a big jail made of pure gold then to have all those soviet-minded thieves and freaks in public service. But we, Ukrainians, will continue having them as the worst shame for the Nation because we are not able to take a responsibility for our own lives, communities, and our country. We will continue to let them rob the Nation and inhibit it's development until we wake up and understand what the words "freedom", "independence", and "democracy" really mean. But will we ever "wake up"?..
