    Picture Translation

    Can somebody tell me exactly how this translates? I get the general gist of it (The Muscovites are sending the Ukrainians some "gas-free" champagne -- har-har), but don't understand it word-for-word. Also, does цi in Ukrainian (as well as це perhaps?) just mean "it?"

    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    No, this is Ukraine's own Champagne. Not sent from Moscow.

    це = это
    ці = эти

    And let those cursed Russians choke on their gas.

    москаль = musovite, but colloquially for 'Russian'. I think it mat be derogatory.

    Got it, thanks! Now I understand why I didn't understand much Ukrainian when I was in Russia...

    Поперхнуться is not the modern Ukrainian word for 'to choke' rather a russification.

    The Ukrainian is Задушити or Засмір... I forget how it ends.
