They can open criminal cases...

I can get a date with the girls from Nikita. But it's very unlikely.

Yanukovych will not prosecute the man who sponsored him for his first try at the Presidency, with whom he fixed his initial victory, and with whom the Melnychenko tapes show him discussing getting rid of Gongadze.

A different administration might put Kuchma on trial together with Yanukovych, for which reason Yanukovych will not allow a free election.

They'll open a case against Kuchma and other politicians when pigs fly.

But - I'm willing to give them a chance.

I'll believe it when I see it.

No government will ever follow through with charges against a previous one or its members, it would open them to the same

it might even force accountability, then what would the parasites do?

There should be no charges here. This is an event of the past and we should forget about it.

What is the meaning of, &quot;Thou shalt not kill&quot;?

Yes, indeed.

So if Kuchma kills you, it's an event of the past, and we should forget about it.

Great words to live - and die - by.

Stupid twisted sovok relic bass ackward mentality.

Why have a criminal code at all if you're not going to pay attention to it?

Yanukovych putting his only 2015 Presidential rival on the defensive?
