Ah, the message is clear -

Can only be played on YouTube
Play back on other sites has been disabled.

I found it on YouTube and assumed it would be OK here. Thanks for providing the direct YouTube link.

That explains it! i wondered why.
Three photos of the now famous ostriches taken by yours truly just under a month ago.
And remember that Yanukovich said - "they were just there"....  right...






And this third photo appears also on the Mizyghoria sticky post
Only when standing next to a human do you get some idea of the size of these animals -
who just "happened to be there".... Strange.. you think somebody would have noticed them before, wouldn't you... ?!  rendeer

And a video clip - just under 2 minutes long - of Yanuk's brain working in overdrive at the bbc interview - about the ostriches....
With subtitles in English.

"I supported the ostriches, what's wrong with that?" Viktor Yanukovych speaks to Newsnight

And some great headlines about bandit-President Yanukovich and his ostriches....

Yanukovich Ostriches' Celebrity Status Causing Them Stress

And from Florida Newstime
Ukraine's deposed ruler Viktor Yanukovich's ostriches suffering 'sexual problems'

Yanukovich’s opulence: Russian baths, ostriches and golden golf clubs
http://www.thenational.ae/world/europe/yanukovichs-opulence-russian-baths-ostriches-and-golden-golf-clubs
Even the most cynical Ukrainians, who streamed to see Viktor Yanukovich’s luxury estate, rubbed their eyes in disbelief when they were confronted by the scale of the opulence he built around him and kept secret from the outside world.

=====

And if you're wondering - yes, Yanukovich did say that he "supported" the ostriches, rather than "kept" them...
He began to get confused.... Lying and lying does begin to take its toll on people - usually. Putin excepted.
