This is beginning to sound and look much like the Robert's Right Wing Court system in the United States, and the present President of Ukraine is beginning to look more like the former U.S. president gwbush.

Yulia has too much support, and this kangaroo court business will die just as she was cleared on 24 May 11, but the present President will not quit trying to isolate her because he fears her presence in the next election. He knows that he cannot win again, because Ukraine is becoming a dictatorship like that under Kuchma. Yulia will prevail.

As well, the United States wants the missile defense system that NATO is advocating, and they will turn their power toward Yulia for their own interests.

Yulia will be the next President of Ukraine.

He is a servant of the devil and must do what he's told under any circumstances.
