MOSCOW – In a surprising concession, the Kremlin announced Thursday that soldiers captured in Ukraine earlier this week were indeed from the elite First Airborne Division of the Russian Air-Landing Forces (VDV), but it was due to the Ukrainian border inexplicably jumping over them “out of nowhere,” sources confirmed. “This is all very simple misunderstanding comrades,” Defense Minister Pyotr Rurikid assured reporters at a televised press conference. “Ukraine is very unstable country, no? Event at Chernobyl was fault of lazy Ukrainian serfs at helm of complicated machinery. Ever since border between Russia and Ukraine been fluid. Question?” Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed the troopers were acting in a peacekeeping role with direct orders to remain on their side of the border, and that the Ukrainian border intentionally sneaked in behind them. According to sources at a press conference in Moscow, a reporter from Russia Today, a known bastion of free speech and journalistic integrity which is in no way a Kremlin propaganda outlet, asked if the aforementioned paratroopers were indeed delivering humanitarian aid to the innocent orphans and adorable puppy dogs of Donetsk. “These things happen all of times in former Soviet Bloc,” said Rurikid, as his face lit up with a winsome smile while completely ignoring the question. “Subjects and verbs switched for humorous effect. Is slyly poke of fun at ponderous bureaucracy. I tell you other one. Why did road cross fat mother-in-law of dirty Ukrainian muzhik?” At press time, the Kremlin had also announced that the Ukrainian border has further leapt over three Russian armored divisions and a corps of motorized infantry, who are at present speeding towards Kiev to right things with the nearest cartographer.

Bazooka Joe says: August 29, 2014 at 10:14 PM Actually, this is all true. I asked the golfer-in-chief and after initially denying knowing anything, he finally conceded that he had authorized the secret weapon, Tigger 1, deployed to the Ukraine forthwith. That way, everybody will focus on this new news and leave him to more important matters like fund raisings and golf games. Joseph Diamond says: August 28, 2014 at 10:28 PM Borders will do that! I remember in another life I opened my tent flap and saw something strange near our beach. I send my eldest sons to investigate! They returned and reported…..”Papa, they are Europeans from across the great water. They want to meet you and ask for permission to camp by the great water on out sand.” So I met with the Europeans. We smoked the pipe of friendship. We wrote on their paper….Forever the Europeans will live in peace here on the beach. The red brothers will live in the trees forever…The white skins will live on the beach near the great water.” The border moved! I lost track at the Mississippi. Pretty sure it was that way! joe Joel Wasserman says: August 28, 2014 at 10:28 PM In fairness, the soldiers could also have been led by an Army lieutenant. Jamie Wishert says: August 28, 2014 at 1:28 PM They need Chuck Norris to tell the border to “Stay!” Robert Duncan says: August 28, 2014 at 12:44 PM I’m surprised the Ruskies didn’t end up in Brownsville. Those borders tend to be so confusing. Angry Warrant says: August 28, 2014 at 12:44 PM Why doesn’t he give the REAL reason: That damned Jumpmaster there on the LZ, sitting in his buttoned-up BTR-90, all hunched over and reading his Turbo Meter under his shirt. “No winds. No winds here!” He says. “Jump’s a go!” Then the troopers get the green light and are out in 25 knot winds and end up in the parking lot of Rick’s Donut and Bake Shop. Grrrrr!
