Korolevska's party is a satellite party set up by PoR, to make sure the opposition doesn't get the majority! You'll see, during the elections all the votes for her party will go to Yanukovych! We all know that Shevchenko was always with PoR, so now he's probably being paid millions to pretend that Korolevska has the people's best interests at heart. It's all a very clever set-up (just look who's financing the party), which people will unfortunately fall for.
