Hypocrisy to the limit.

First.......he continuously lies about the democracy in Ukraine ha ha ha !!!

He can't write....so he gets some one to write for him ......disgusting

If Ukraine is a great place to do business...is there not one ! publisher in Ukraine that can print his book of lies??

And ......where did the money come from to publish this book??

Normally Ha ha, a gov't would print brochures, set up websites, etc. aimed at potentital foreign investors.

This is the only time in history, a sitting leader has written a book about extolling the virtues of investing in his country.

What a joke.

Then to have it published in a foreign country !!!

Yanuk has lost touch with reality.

He must be removed from power,,,,,,

A sure sign of shoddy journalism is trying to invent controversy where there is none. Good on Yanuk for publishing a book in English to promote Ukraine, thats a lot more than these clowns posting here are doing for the country.

There is nothing wrong with publishing a book if he wrote it yourself.&quot;Proffessor&quot; Yanukonvict, the illiterate thief, inserted other peoples writings into his book and robbed the budget to print it. You should be ashamed of him.

The book still had to be translated, edited and printed by Aug. 19, raising questions as to how this was achieved if Yanukovych claimed to have finished it only in August. Molden Verlag told the Kyiv Post that the process of editing, translating and printing takes at least 11 to 13 weeks.
