You're reading: Motyl: Yanukovych has no computer in office?

That Yanukovych doesn’t hear journalists is half the problem. He doesn’t hear his citizens. He wakes up in [his palatial estate outside Kyiv], which is surrounded by a six-meter-high fence and guarded, not by the Berkut special forces, but by an Anti-Aircraft Defense unit of Ukraine’s armed forces. He travels in a heavily guarded cortege along the Kyiv-Nova Petrivka highway…. Then he takes cordoned-off streets to get to [the presidential building], where he ends up in the closed bubble of the presidential administration…. His circle of associates is confined to his closest advisors, hunting friends, and his fawning subordinates. Every time Yanukovych goes out he is accompanied by an army of guards… There is no computer in Yanukovych’s office.

OK, I saved it for last. There is no computer in Yanukovych’s office. Come again? Yup, you heard right: There is no computer in Yanukovych’s office.

Now, Leshchenko is too good a journalist to have gotten this wrong, so, when he says Yanukovych has no computer in his office, he means Yanukovych has no computer in his office. That also means he has no Internet, no Skype, no e-mail.
