You're reading: Tymoshenko’s life may be in danger

The Kyiv Post reported on Sept. 11 that a statement from
the Batkivshchyna Party demanded that Tymoshenko be examined in
independent clinic for possible poisoning in connection with the death of her
former cellmate in Lukianivska jail.  

It all goes back to the prima facie disaster that was a
collective epochal blunder perpetrated by Ukrainian voters who elected Viktor
Yanukovych as Ukraine’s president in February 2010. Mainly because of a bad
economy, two million fewer voters went to the polls than did on Dec. 26, 2004 when Viktor Yushchenko was elected.  Yanukovych won in 2010 despite common knowledge
of the record and background of both candidates in the runoff election, Tymoshenko andYanukovych.

The election of
Yanukovych was disastrous in its consequences because it means an end to honest
elections in the foreseeable future, unless the risk of a violent confrontation
between the present regime and the opposition becomes acceptable.
