Which Ukrainian politician would you most like to meet with?
“Ukrainians are dissatisfied, the opposition is in jail, that’s all I know about the political situation in Ukraine as I’m from Russia and this is my first time in Kyiv. I wouldn't like to meet any of Ukrainian politicians, except Yulia Tymoshenko. However, I would like to ask her about personal life rather than politics.”
“I would like to meet with the former Kyiv Major Oleksandr Omelchenko. I like him both as a person and as a politician. It would be great to have him as a candidate on the future local elections.”
“There is no person in the government I would like to meet with. Good people do not go into politics in Ukraine.”
“I think I would like to meet with President Viktor Yanukovych. I have plenty of questions for him. I’m curious about his reaction on the growing feeling of disgust and resentment among Ukrainians.”
“I would like to spend an hour with the former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. She is an interesting woman. It would be great to learn more about her private life.”
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
