The guy at the ned of his raod to fame, came to his senses, and acts with decency and class.

Something no one in the whole wide world can say about Tymuchenko..

No wonder Ukraine is in such a mess.

Many believes it was Jula Tymuchenko who poisoned Yuschenko.

After her public display of desregard for law country and colligues,, no doubts it was Julia only who had benefited from a poisoined Yuschenko, and it was her only who was after his job, impatiently agressively...

Yushenko had class and decency, as he exits his post, people salute him!

As Tymusenko is being dumped, it reminds peple of a country tolitet,,,,

It stinks, it needs to be isolated...

Good job Juchenko...

He has done a great deal to cause divisions and hatreds in the country. His statement, in this light, is a wellcome one.

But nothing in politics changes much. Politicians change their colors, but are in essence, always same.

The rush of the &quot;international community&quot; to recognize results, and all the institutions falling in line, has much to do with the realization that another round of shenannigans would have split the country, with long-term consequences. This is the only reason for being so congratulatory, so quickly. And Yuschenko is joining the chorus.

Tymoschenko will continue to be the joker, using her only weapon, her tongue, to cut to pieces anything anyone will try to do positively for Ukraine. She is capable of defining night as day, and day as night. And people will believe her. It will be a breeze for her to pick to pieces any Yanukovic program or initiative. The idea is, in a few years, she will look good again.

It may not happen as she wishes, or better put --- those who prop her up wish.

The country may not survive the continuation of chaos, and it may be time to de-sovietize, and divide the country in two halfs. That may be the only permanent solution.

Its so sad, Tymu is done finished, she will live politics as a spray dog.

Thank God wcked witch is out government, out of sight..

No sense trying to resurect her,,, she is like a pair of old shoes; stinks and falling to piecies..

Its cheaper to get another pair of shoes, than to mend an old useless onne.

So much real talents in Ukraine, who needs this turtle to keep the nation divided while she robs it and sucks it dry,,,

Monika Lewinski is looking for her in America, wants to teach Juliia how to treat a States man..

She should know,, she learnt it on Clinton when she worked for the mossad

Tymu is not a joker, but a sick joke.

No one cares about her anymore.

She will quit politics, as she has sunk lower then her sewer style mouth.
