Delegation led by Zelensky grossly violated Arab etiquette in Qatar


On April 5, 2021, a Ukrainian delegation led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy grossly violated the diplomatic etiquette adopted in Arab countries during an official visit to the state of Qatar. During the reception with His Highness Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak and Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba crossed their legs, showing the soles of their shoes. Moreover, the soles were directed towards His Highness and the President of Ukraine.


It should be noted that everyone else who took part in the event kept both feet on the floor. In Arab countries, throwing one leg over the other is regarded not just as lack of culture and a manifestation of disrespect for the interlocutor, but as an insult. Arabs' feet are considered "unclean" even if they are well washed.

Note that even in Western countries such a negotiating posture is considered inappropriate. This was noticed by the Arab, Ukrainian, European and even American media. A real scandal began on social networks, the question arose of what the protocol service of the President of Ukraine was doing. After that, the press service hastily removed the photo from the website of the President of Ukraine. However, some of the remaining photographs still show Ermak's expensive shoes and a woman's bare knee.


A girl from the Ukrainian delegation also violated the rules of etiquette. In an Arab country, she must wear either a pantsuit or a long skirt. The knees should not be visible in principle - this is considered obscene and vulgar.

Sources close to the Emir of Qatar informed that His Highness paid attention to the "details." However, he can condescend to the incident with the "poorly educated barbarians" and nothing catastrophic will happen between Doha and Kiev.

The influential state of the Persian Gulf is not at all opposed to becoming even richer, given the signing of 11 interstate agreements and 2 investment contracts. But the conclusions in Qatar were definitely made and they will be more careful in dealing with the "wild" representatives of the "European nation", since "the residue remained."

    pigs sit, sprawled in front of hereditary kings and princes
    who invites them at all and for what merits
    just because the West called them a favorite servant?
    even I, who is far from etiquette and ostentatious politeness, is ashamed to look at this idleness in suits
    or is it studio block 95 on tour?

      I must say, for the sake of justice, that these "hereditary kings and princes" twisted camels' tails two or three generations ago.

        then ush you need to be honest and fair to the end
        two or three generations ago, the ancestors of those who fell apart in suits were themselves with tails and hooves

    Well, the "Foreign Minister" should have ("in his work" and "preparation" for the previously announced tour of the Maidanoprezik in the Middle East) himself knew the rules of etiquette in Arab countries, and told his colleagues in "Quarter 95" , so that "your knees do not shine" ?! winked
    So, there is no reason to blame the servants from the "protocol service" if the ignorant "gentlemen" ("God forbid z slave-pan!" request
    As the saying goes:

    even put a saddle on a pig, it won't become a horse anyway!

But the conclusions in Qatar were definitely made and they will be more careful in dealing with the "wild" representatives of the "European nation", since "the residue remained."

    - The local venerable site audience is so "deeply concerned" about the rules of observing exotic etiquette; that somehow I missed the main thing ... - and how fruitful was this meeting of the two main representatives of the states of Ukraine and Qatar ...
    - In fact ... - "11 interstate agreements and 2 investment contracts were signed" ... - This is what has been done ... - And this is the main thing ...
    - And what kind of "knees", "heels" and "soles of shoes" were involved ... it's all somehow ..............
    - Maybe this was done on purpose ... - to create a more "spectacular effect" ... - And it is worth "adopting" ... - Hahah ...
    - That would be so S. Lavrov; or M. Mishustin; or M. Zakharova or even our guarantor himself ... - that's how they would easily come with similar visits to Saudi Arabia (and not only) and behave ... - "just as relaxed ... how ...". - and still achieve the same results ... - Hahah ...
    - And the fact that at the same time

    The seniors cried,
    Their wives and maids
    Dogs on the couches
    And the children in their arms.

    - this nuance "is not so important anymore ...
    - The main thing is what is more important for our Motherland ... - and everything else ... - and not so important ... - Or not ??? -Hahah ...

    A girl from the east worked for us as a cleaner in the office ...
    She worked well and worked for herself, no one paid attention to her, but who looks at the cleaning ladies?
    But for some reason I started looking at her ..
    But she is beautiful, there is a mole on her cheek, a crescent eyebrow, slender as a cypress, and she says that she is singing, her gait is that a swan is swimming! Become my wife, she will be faithful to me, she will not drink beer, get a tattoo on her ass and waste money on makeup ... and she will not watch specific videos and even more so she will not dream of starring in them.
    Not immediately, but I realized that I fell in love with her !!!
    And so I somehow decided after work to wait for her and kind of invite her somewhere. I wait for her at the entrance, one hour, two ... but she's still gone. Well, I decided to return to the office to find out what was going on ... I go everywhere the light is off, on the nearest table is her work coat, brushes, rags, a bucket, etc. And I see that she is sitting behind the monitor of our boss !!! Oh you, what would you !!! - suspicious thoughts, such as espionage and theft of information, crept into my head !!! And I thought I was pretending to be a lamb.
    I walk up to her quietly from the back, looked at the screen and there .... and there is a draft of our boss's thesis !!! Our boss is a beautiful woman with a gorgeous car, but arrogant, stupid and greedy, moreover. And we went over the ears that they say a second higher education is received !!! It turns out that Gulnara will do her work for her, and she, having received a diploma, will throw her out as unnecessary without even paying !!!
    Unable to restrain myself from such injustice, I grabbed her dressing gown, rags, brushes and threw them into the oven !!!
    Immediately there was heavenly thunder, lightning flashed and black smoke poured down ...
    What have you done, darling? !!! - shouted Gulnara, and immediately the FMS officers burst into the office and began to knit her ...
    What have you done, darling? ”Gulnara shouted again, because I had a patent and a work permit in my dressing gown, now I am deported and we will not be together !!!!
    I rushed to free her, but the FMS officers rudely pushed me away and I hit the wall and fell unconscious ...
    I woke up in complete silence ...
    .... Where is mine, Gulnara, I shouted to the heavens, but the heavens were silent ... Where is my Gulnara, I asked the moon when I went out on the balcony on sleepless nights ... but the moon was silent, lowering its eyes ...
    And as soon as the morning wind whispered to me - With the first caravan go to where Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva are ...

        Yes, you can get vaccinated at least a hundred times, only it was good for you, but somehow we have been living without vaccinations for 20 years and do not get sick.
