You're reading: No compromise with Yanukovych regime

It reminds
of the refusal of Vyacheslav Chornovil to face Leonid Kravchuk in a televised
debate on the eve of Ukraine’s first presidential election in 1991. No one
could convincingly explain that faux pas, except attribute it to insufficient
experience in political gaming.

Now, in the
wake of the recent election, taking the parliamentary seats by the opposition,
as it should be done, would not by itself diminish in any way their resolve to
solidify the pressure against the fraudulent regime or to weaken their hand.

At the same
time, the opposition must continue to demand re-voting in as many electoral
districts as it deems necessary, and not show willingness to “compromise” on
this issue – as inexplicably suggested in a recent op-ed in the Kyiv Post (“Advice
to Opposition: Take seats, organize,” https://www.kyivpost.com/opinion/op-ed/advice-to-opposition-take-seats-organize-315798.html,
 Nov. 8).
