Feline Felon Strikes in Kharkov… Scarfs Down Upscale Meat Products… MEOW!!

00 Cat Criminals in Moldova. 20.10.13

______________________________

Ukrainian media reported that a hungry homeless cat in Kharkov snuck into a local meat-packing plant, eating and ruining over 6,000 Ukrainian Grivna (25,960 Roubles. 2,320 Renminbi. 22,960 INR. 371 USD. 471 CAD. 477 AUD. 328 Euros. 247 UK Pounds) worth of meat products. The cat, who reportedly spent several days in the plant after sneaking into its finished products area, seemed to prefer the good life. Workers say that he sampled only the plant’s most premium delicacies, giving the feline a magnificent feast. After workers finally caught the cat, they handed him over to an area shelter. He’s in a cage, fed nothing but dry cat food. Shelter workers nicknamed him “Balyk”, which means “fish” in Turkic languages, and a brand of cold smoked meat products sold in the former USSR. Presently, the stray is in 45-day quarantine, after which they’ll put him up for adoption. Dozens of local residents have already voiced their interest in adopting the debonair thief; they can do this when his quarantine is up. The Ukrainian cat shares his love of meat and seafood delicacies with a Russian cat caught earlier. Last month, a stray in Vladivostok broke into a seafood shop at the city’s international airport, eating and sampling nearly 1,000 USD (70,080 Roubles. 6,250 Renminbi. 62,085 INR. 1,270 CAD. 1,285 AUD. 885 Euros. 665 UK Pounds) worth of seafood. The “Admiral” hockey club adopted the Vladivostok stray; he became the team’s official mascot.

______________________________

On Thursday, a Greek government source told Athens-Macedonian News Agency. The source said that Greece, along with other countries, succeeded in “preventing [the EU Foreign Affairs Council] from imposing a Cold War climate in favour of introducing new sanctions against Russia, this climate has improved in the last few days”. On Thursday, EU foreign ministers adopted a decision to keep in force the existing sanctions against Russia until September 2015, but stopped short of imposing new sanctions. The source emphasised, “[This is] a considerable success of Greek diplomacy”, commenting on the Greek delegation under new Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias. The new Greek government repeatedly spoke out against introducing new sanctions against Russia, emphasising that restrictions would bring economic problems to a number of European states, including Greece.
