A silk purse out of a sow’s ear

One of many amazing quotes from  ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’  election guru Roman Lyagin, that didn’t make it into the final version of my story in Foreign Policy today:

 “We’re trying to become people of the world. I’m the first person in my family with a higher education. My grandfather was a cowherd, and I’m organising the elections for a republic.”
