True...

But in a democracy, you have no censorship, no electoral rorting, no political arrests - and a free and fair election so these same Ukrainians can change their mind.

Yanukovich is removing the ability of Ukrainians to change their minds... that is the problem here.

Revolt is the only answer, if they want change in how political power is executed in Ukraine.

Total change of the political faces of Ukraine, and give back the power to the people.

Next, fire all judges and judiciary officials appointed by the politicians, and reshuffle the whole judiciary system.

Power to the people

Ukraine sadly deserves everything it gets for putin Profffessorr yanukonvikt in power. This turd is destoying the Ukrainian nation and democracy for a few rubles - his is JUDAS.

Who is the real winner here - Not the Ukrainian people - putin is laughing as he keeps his boats in the Crimea, has probably got the Gaz pipelines in his pocket, and on top of that is raising the Gaz prices.

Now Yanukonvikt is changing the law to sell land to foriegnours, the russkies will buy everthing, and then Ukrainian will be paying rent to the krelin to live in their own native lands.

The kremlin with yanulonvikt in the pocket are taking you for idiots.

You need to cut out the cancer and get rid of yanukonvikt before it's to late. Ukrainians rose up numerous times before and they can do it again. Live up to the national anthem - Sche nev merla Ukraina.

I remember being on another Ukrainian forum where most of the commentators preferred Yanu over Yulia, being totally blind to the incompetence and corruption of Yush, thinking Yanu was too dumb to do what he's doing. Guess they were the dumb ones.

Sad for Ukraine that there were too many that thought that way.

Sad for Ukraine that Yush hated Yulia far more than he loved Ukraine, to allow this corruption to win the presidency, doing everything he could to undermine Yulia rather than Yanu.

Dumb, Dumb, Dumb!

Those are &quot;common&quot; burglars, quite normal they are prosecuted. All that scum amassed unbelievable fortunes depriving the people from their welfare. They must be prosecuted and punished.
