As the current regime has clearly decided that they will not only pass judgment but will determine what the former Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko's, sentence will be in the nearest future, there has been a great deal of speculation of who will be the opposition.
At this point the spin doctors of the project that has been an ongoing on for the entire period of Ukraine’s “independence” seem to be ready to capture the hearts and mind of the readers of the Ukrainska Pravda website. From an authoritative source, I can state without a doubt that “nothing else matters!” If it comes out on Ukrainska Pravda that is the only exit point that is really important. From there in gets redistributed in various formats, be it electronic, print or other means of broadcasting, very often without reference to the source.
Right now those same spin doctors are trying to position Arseniy Yatsenyuk as a possible oppositional candidate to the current regime of Viktor Yanukovych, the current President of Ukraine, and those who live by his rules of conduct.
They state that there is a campaign called for the “Front of Change” which appears to be headed by Party of Regions, financier, Rinat Akmetov and is in fact is a project of David Zhvania, who former President Yushchenko even implicated in his dioxin poisoning, even though Zhvnaia is the godfather of one of Yushchenko's children.
Now who in their normal minds could consider this to be anything more than a political front -- same money and same people?
All this aside, besides where the money could be coming from? Why would Akmetov try to shoot himself and those he is clearly sleeping with, in the foot? Clearly, once again it is the divide and conquer strategy.
Regardless, who is Arseniy Yatsenyuk? I my mind, he is simply another political project. Much along the ilk of Kravchuk, Kuchma and Yushchenko by those who want to make Ukraine their economic haven and zone of plunder.
He is not a leader, but someone who is accountable to his financiers. While, Yulia may have ghosts in her closet, everyone knows this. Yatsenyuk is far from Yulia's stature in charisma, knowledge or independence and values. While his spin doctors have tried to position him in the past as pro-Ukrainian, he does not measure up to the stature of Yulia Tymoshenko on many different levels.
The choice of his career, in my opinion had very little to do with his interest in legal matters, but rather, as a method of being a part of the old Soviet nomenclature. Hailing from Chernivtsi where there was quite an active pro-Ukrainian student movement when he was studying; he chose not to be involved, hence I have every reason to question his pro-Ukrainian sentiment, as should everyone else.
Like many of the Komsomol ilk, he chose a career that was planned for him, planned and laid out in a manner of which those of the communist ilk could all return to power and subdivide the country.
Yatsenyuk is clearly not leadership material for the Ukrainian nation. Maybe as part of the politico-economic project called Ukraine, however, not for the good of the common Ukrainian people.
