Tired of Our Ukraine Shenanigans

Why is this putz still in a position to make any such
comments at all? From RFE newsline:

ORANGE-REVOLUTION ALLIES. Roman Zvarych of Our Ukraine
journalists in Kyiv on May 16 that his bloc has
suspended talks on
the creation of a ruling coalition
with the Yuliya Tymoshenko Bloc
and the Socialist Party,
Ukrainian media reported. Zvarych explained
that the
move was taken in response to Yuliya Tymoshenko's
public statements that her bloc will get the
post of prime minister
and the Socialists that of
parliamentary speaker. He stressed that
Our Ukraine
will not accept an "ultimatum." Zvarych also said
Our Ukraine wants the three 2004 Orange
Revolution allies to request
that President Viktor
Yushchenko hold a meeting with them. "[We want
request that] the president receive leaders of these
forces in order to find a joint way out of
this situation," Zvarych
added. Yushchenko is Our
Ukraine's founder and honorary chairman.
Oleksandr Turchynov of the Tymoshenko Bloc told

journalists on May 17 that the talks between the
three forces were to
be restarted later the same day,
UNIAN reported. JM

Translation: Our Ukraine is still dragging its feet, pissing people
off, and this time engaging in some BS about gentlemanliness:
"We want to talk to you, but only if you are nice."

And only if you don't make demands that reflect how
Orange voters

Kuzio got it right here (Kyiv Post editorial).

[Update: I forgot that the Post has started making its older op-eds
available only for money, true to their mission of making Ukraine
over in the image of Western-capitalist paradiso. In short, Kuzio said that
the West should change its image of Tymoshenko, as she appears as
the only political leader left in Ukraine--beside Moroz?--serious
about taking on corruption.

Though I am not 100% confident of her sincerity, I want t
to see have another go at it: see what I wrote here.]

And Bob has been right all along about

I see we have dealt with the same issue on our respective blogs. I cannot see why this soap opera never seems to end. Still, there is not more than a week left now before a government must be formed, according to the constitution.

I have added a link to your blog in my links section.

In your recent post on this matter, you mention that Moroz has been proposed as PM. To my mind, that would be something!
