You're reading: Vox Populi with Yuriy Onyshkiv: Who is better for Ukraine as U.S. president – Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?

“For [President Viktor] Yanu­kovych’s Ukraine, Obama would be a better choice, because he does not care what is going on in Ukraine. He removed Ukraine from his priorities. For Ukraine in general, Romney is more preferable, because after the Iran issue the next thing on his agenda is Russia and after that, the situation with human rights, including, in the post-Soviet countries. If he does not get involved into a war with Iran, he would pressure both Russia and Yanukovych.”

“I consider myself a democrat and I think that Romney is more aggressive compared to Obama. Therefore, I think that Obama is more suitable [for Ukraine].”

“The most important thing for us is that the U.S. and the EU keep their current position regarding undemocratic developments in Ukraine. I think that the U.S. policy favoring more democracy in Ukraine will not change regardless of who wins presidential race in the U.S.”
