One man stands in the way of Ukrainian integration into the EU~Putin's puppet!
Mark my words~The Ukraine led by the Puppet will go to the Puppet Master Putin~and ultimately under the Umbrella of The Bishop of Moscow~The God on Earth alliance of Krill and the unholy Ras-Putin~

If there is truth in your comment then we must be thankfull that 'Putins puppet' may save us from the EU and fools like you that would have us part of a failed attempt of a single state Europe. Concentrate on your own countries dire problems and we will take care of our own.

It is clear that the President and Government are behind all efforts to kill opposition in Ukraine. I hope the people of Ukraine will be clever enough to understand what's going on, but I doubt it after the they elected Yanukovitch. If the next election gets lost for the opposition, Ukraine will be lost for a very long time. It wil be a march to the Feudal system of the 18th century then.

Well, well, a word from the "president" - who claims he is unable to "interfere" in the show trials of political opponents - and this case is immediately dropped. How about the credibility of the "president", anyone? Anyway, the pressure on media is not likely to decrease, the PoR mafia has only found there may be other ways to crack down on media freedom, like limiting the access to the channel by having it removed from cable networks.
