You're reading: Boris Danik: Ukraine would be better off without Donetsk, Luhansk oblasts

How could the vote be counted in those regions, where
government buildings are controlled by hoodlums who not only defy Ukraine’s
government, but also are or pretend to be at odds with Russia’s president on

A well- kept secret seems to be that the interim President Oleksandr
Turchynov is not making the kind of mistakes that characterized his predecessors.
In other words, he makes sense. Not perfect, but then again not like the 20-something loonies who have entered the presidential race (I don’t mean
Yulia Tymoshenko who could still be the best-qualified choice, or Petro
Poroshenko, viewed by many as a wild card, despite quicky endorsements).
