The undemocratic corruptive behavior of the government at all levels is killing the positive impact of the unprecedented strong political will of President Viktor Yanukovych and his ability to consolidate the political team.
Lack of democratic capacity prohibits Yanukovych from fulfilling his main commitment: to set the country in order. This same lack of democratic institutional capacity, which is understandably perceived as the president’s team natural inclination to evil totalitarian repressions, puts the long-awaited and vitally needed reforms at the brink of losing the momentum.
The proposed reforms will not succeed in the way expected. The government has done everything to persuade Ukrainians that we do not want the reforms that we do not and cannot understand these reforms But is it true that Ukrainians do not want reforms? No, Ukrainians want reforms. We simply do not want to be passive blind victims. Neither does the president want a protesting nation.
