Has anyone seen eccentric Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetsky? The city’s nominal chief, stripped of most of his duties by the President Viktor Yanukovych administration, has been out of the public eye for several months.
Now even the prime minister claims to be wondering where he’s got to.

Mykola Azarov told the head of the city administration, Oleksandr Popov, to “bring him back to work.” Azarov had earlier said Chernovetsky’s role had become similar to that of the “Queen of England,” after Popov was effectively appointed to run the city by Yanukovych.

Insiders at city hall say Chernovetsky is not even in the country. Analysts suggest a deal has been struck with Yanukovych’s ruling Party of Regions that he disappear from public view in exchange for immunity from prosecution in connection with various accusations of corruption.
