Oleh Tyahnybok, who appears in the picture accompanying the article is basically a fascist. Strib, is this the "opposition"? -------------------------- From Wikipedia "On July 20, 2004, Tyahnybok was expelled from the Our Ukraine parliamentary faction after he made a speech in the Carpathian Mountains at the gravesite of a commander of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. In the speech, which was aired on television in the summer of 2004, he made comments like: "[You are the ones] that the Moscow-Jewish mafia ruling Ukraine fears most" and "They were not afraid and we should not be afraid. They took their automatic guns on their necks and went into the woods, and fought against the Moskali, Germans, Kikes and other scum who wanted to take away our Ukrainian state."[10]"

And, the next in the queue for leadership? Arseniy Yatseniuk. From Wikipedia, "he wants European Union membership for Ukraine and he sees this "because this means standards and values – a [high] level of education, medical treatment, pensions, employment, freedoms, new technologies, and progress"" ---------------- Really?? He may want to examine how pensions, high levels of education and employment have fared in the EU's banker's war on Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Portugal, Ireland.
