Bliff

What the Ukrainian word for “bluffed” sounded like in the commentary of protesters behind frozen snow walls in Kiev’s icy Maidan square last week. They were analyzing Viktor Janukovytsch’s offer of cabinet posts to two of the three opposition leaders, with himself remaining at the helm and no early elections before the scheduled one in 2015.

The offer was made on 25 Jan 2014 and the Ukrainian opposition turned it down on 26 Jan 2014.
