Late one night last March, billionaire Igor Kolomoisky, then still governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast region in the Ukraine, was coming out of his office, and Radio Liberty’s journalist Serhiy Andrushko asked him what he was doing late at night at the office.

As the KyivPost put it, using extremely offensive language, Kolomoisky suggested that the journalist ask him about “the Russian saboteurs who seized the building” rather than just “wait for a chance to see Kolomoisky.”

“Why don’t you ask about the corporate raid at Ukrtransnafta? Or how the Russian saboteurs got here, huh?” Kolomoisky said. “Or you are just sitting here with your fucking Radio Liberty, waiting to see Kolomoisky? Why are you sitting here like a hussy waiting for her unfaithful husband? Have you shut up already?”

Now quotes from Kolomoisky’s legendary tirade has been turned into a series of T-shirts, by Svitlana Kriukova, economics editor of “Vesti. Reporter” magazine, and she’s selling them through her website, The Telki (The Hussies).

Seven designs are available, for 222 hryvnia, or $9.5.

Kriukova says that she received 200 orders on the first day of sale, mostly for the XXL size.

Kriukova writes on her Facebook page that “the orders came from (bulky) deputies of the Svoboda and People’s Front parties, as well as from journalists and photographers.

“All customers want to get it until Monday. We thought why they do this? And then understand that the session starts in Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s parliament) on Tuesday.”

She also received 150 orders from Moscow.
