See this important defense of the progress of reforms in Ukraine agianst the rising tide of impatience, cynicism, skepticism, exaggeration regarding the shortcomings of the orange government, etc.
And see this earlier account of the Tymoshenko government that he wrote in May during the fuel-shortage crisis.
And once again also read Terry Hallman's defense of Tymoshenko on his maidan.org blog.
Also look at my three pieces on this blog (Tymoshenko's Tribulations 1, 2, and 3) about the whole gas shortage affair and the issue of her populism--Kuzio's more recent piece linked above, btw, to some extent echoes my assertion that to cry about her populist policies that, "It's god-damn socialism, I tell you!" is hyperbole.
