Ukraine Politics

OK. Ukrainian politics should be the new gordian knot of political analysis. President Yushchenko is now down to 1.9% popularity. Party of the Regions is in the lead and Yulia's gang is in its usual position of #2. The Rada will actually consider Yushchenko's proposals for amending the Constitution, after initially delaying any thought on the subject - except no one is quite sure what those amendments really mean. Yulia is in Poland celebrating the collapse of communism and Putin has turned the screws a little more by saying gas transit to Europe could end in July.

It's more entertaining watching Gordon Brown's struggles in Parliament and the disintegration of the government. So, until someone figures out what is going on here in Ukraine, that's what I intend to do.
