June 7, 2014, Kiev (Kyiv), Ukraine, the day of inauguration of Mr. Poroshenko as the elected president.
The local Ukrainian guard of honour had to stand for some hours at +32 centigrade, so one of the soldiers got a heatstroke, dropped his rifle and was close to falling unconsciously just when Poroshenko was indifferently passing by.
December 14, 2014, Poroshenko's official visit to Australia.
Quite another attitude, isn't it? I do not remember state leaders giving their bows to local guards of honour.
So who is Mr. Poroshenko?
In my humble opinion, it's more about serf-master (or, if you wish, puppet-master) relation than a proper behaviour of democratically elected president of an independent country, having a certain level of self-respect and respect to the people of his country.
