You're reading: Who will take responsibility?

Some will blame the Russians or the EU, or anybody but themselves.
Is anyone in Ukraine willing to share the blame, or in a broader sense take
responsibility for Ukraine’s course?  Or
let Russia and Yanukovych make that decision.

The Ukrainians had a nascent democracy shortly after the 2004 Orange Revolution, and they blew it by electing crime boss as president in
2010. That’s the long and short of it, while the literati almost unanimously
were consoling themselves and all the losers that “the Orange Revolution is
irreversible.”

 Intransigence  of Yanukovych towards the requirements
projected by the EU was the obvious venue that undermined the prospects of an
agreement and dashed the expectations of those who believed such a deal is
possible. Yanukovych has successfully played the hocus-pocus of misleading
Ukrainians and much of the world community by repeatedly claiming that Ukraine
will fulfill all the requirements for the Association Agreement.
