The biggest achievement perhaps is to more starkly reveal the greed and moral bankruptcy of many who hold positions of leadership.
This newspaper, by the policy of the publisher and longstanding tradition as we enter our 19th year, will never be a partisan or opposition newspaper. To support one political force or another cheapens independent journalism. Regrettably, many Ukrainian journalists are forced into choosing sides and consequently fail to fairly report both sides. Some wear three hats at once – opposition politician, social activist and journalist. We just want to stick to good journalism at the Kyiv Post.
That said, we by far see the greatest threat to democracy and Ukraine’s economic prosperity coming from Yanukovych and his supporters, including the ruling Party of Regions and most oligarchs.
