Below is a video that purports to show the Academic Ensemble of Moscow Military District performing a musical mocking Europe and the Ukraine for their dependence on Russian natural gas. They joke that if Ukraine joins NATO, they'll just cut the gas. If Russia doesn't win Eurovision, they'll just cut the gas. And as a favor to their Belorussian friends, hey, they'll just cut the gas. Maybe we'll luck out and Ketchum will arrange some tour dates right here in the States.
