You're reading: Back Story: The Kyiv Post is not an opposition paper

This might come as a surprise to some: The Kyiv Post is not an opposition newspaper.

I do not write this with tongue firmly planted in cheek. It is not a disingenuous statement to appease. It is not a ploy to avoid any pressure. In other words, the sucking sound you hear is of a country in transparency hell – not our newspaper sucking up.

However, in a recent meeting with the pro-administration website obozrevatel.com, it was flatly stated that our newspaper was considered oppositionist. I stopped the editor with a denial, but he smiled as if to say, “Yeah, sure. My cocker spaniel is a cosmonaut.”
