It is a shame for all Ukrainians to have such people in power. Ukrainians are great nation and they deserve better. And better will come! The present government (at least majority of them) should reserve some “good places” in local prison.

The reality is that the vast majority of Ukrainian's find this sort of thing simply 'clever' and wish they could do the same ... as the articles contains the following 'Umland said Ukrainians have grown accustomed to such cheating because it is so commonplace. “In Ukraine everything is corrupt anyway with people paying for their [universities] degrees,” he said. “It’s like with corruption'

Spot on! Best comment so far! What's more, it is considered chivalrous, good skill and a sign of success if you manage to swindle someone out of their money, cheat the authorities, wrestle someone esle's business from them by threat of violence or blackmail, achieve something by dubious means, if you come across as someone rough, tough and shady. On top of that, it is considered perfectly normal to brag about it on every corner, so that others could watch you in secret admiration and die from envy as you cruise by in your expensive SUV. Same shit happens in Russky land.

Oh, oh, also an everage punter seems to like intimidating appearance as a sign of authority and prison jargon, so obviously a good sense of humour and charm wouldn't fly.

Good point, firstly we have to start from ourselves.

If we ask an average Ukrainian student – How many people he/she knows who paid at least one bribe during university time we realize how big the problem is.

Plagiarists can be simply defined as individuals who are too lazy and, or, who are not capable to think for themselves. More often than not these same people also turn out to be chronic liars. Yanukovych Senior and Junior are excellent examples of the sickness that permeates the Government of Ukraine. Those students that honor respect and dignity should avoid the Yanukovych example as they would for any disease.

Considering Yury's previous publications, it is surprising that he hasn't accused Yanukovych younger of burning of the Alexandria library and murder Kennedy. The extremely unilateral daily giving of a material puts objectivity of the journalist under serious doubt.

Please learn English before posting drivel comments. Google Translate's algorithms aren't strong enough to translate your words based on warped Soviet thinking.

What can be expected from both Yanukovychs'?

It's not like they have an education.

These guys are rough and tumble donetsk mafia types.

No one is certain if they know how to sign their names.....let alone

write a paragrah!

In a written response to the Kyiv Post, Yanukovych Jr. said the allegations &quot;are untrue and essentially libel, which can be prosecuted by the laws of our state.”

This may be true because Yanukovych Sr. dictates the &quot;law&quot; and pre-orders what the ruling will be as evidenced by the Tymoshenko persecution.

Can't remember the names of Hussein's sons. Hope in future names of Yanukovych sons will not be remembered as well.

Most, if not all, doctoral dissertations in Ukraine are simply &quot;cut and paste&quot; jobs.

It's true. Especially among politicians and their families. Their degrees are not reflective of knowledge, but instead stink of patronism. It's ingrained in their life patterns.

It is very sad such thugs have come to rule the country and no one, seems to care. A bunch of &quot;gusts&quot; are essentially a bunch of no bodies.

Hats off to the author, Yuriy Onyshkiv
