    If Ukraine entered a psychiatrist's office today, it would be leaving in a straitjacket, Spanish journalist Javier Colas believes.

    If today Ukraine went to a psychiatrist's office, it would leave the office in a straitjacket, Spanish journalist Javier Colas was quoted as saying by the El Mundo newspaper.

    According to Colas, "Ukraine can be called both anti-Russian and pro-Russian nation."

    And these double standards dominate the political landscape and defines he behavior of Ukrainian President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, Colas says.

    The article stresses that if there are new military setbacks, the ongoing war may well turn Poroshenko into a "political corpse."  Earlier, he promised to win the war in a month, Colas reminds.

    President Poroshenko will sell his business because he is sure he will be in the presidential office for a long time, although Poroshenko has yet to deliver on his promise to sell his "chocolate empire" Roshen, said Colas, as cited by El Mundo.

    Poroshenko insists that selling his empire is a tricky task, but Colas cites Ukrainian media as saying that Roshen revenues increased nine-fold last year.
