Today's Ukraine Update:

Looks like Yushchenko's right hand woman - Yulia Tymoshenko, who Disocshaman refers to as "Ukraine's answer to Margaret Thatcher" - has taken charge of rallying the opposition. She has organized the delightfully-named "Committee of National Salvation", and is trying to stop the eastern regions' calls for secession, and is organizing a rally at the Supreme Court tomorrow (today?). She has called for current president, Leonid Kuchma, to dismiss Victor Yanukovich from his current position of Prime Minister as a result of the election violations, and is threatening to essentially place him under house arrest if the following demands are not met:

1) Discharge Yanukovych from his position of Prime Minister, because of his instigation and support of the falsification of the election and in the separatist actions;

2) On the demands of of the decision of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) of November 27, immediately to begin an investigation into new candidates for membership of the Central Election Committee;

3) Discharge from their positions the directors of the Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regional administrations -- the initiators of the break-up of Ukraine;

4) Give a deadline to the Attorney General and the Security Services of Ukraine to open a criminal investigation against the separatists/secessionists of Ukraine.


"we are able to ensure that he will not make a single step without complying with our demands"


Meanwhile a blockade of the Russian embassy continues, and the belief in Russian interference is unquestioned among Yushchenko's supporters.



The sign reads "Putin - don't become a terrorist" (pic from postmodernclog.com)

I expect to arrive at work and have more information - being as the Supreme Court convenes at 11AM in Kiev - 5 or 6 AM Philly time.

Prime sources for news are :

Maidan
and Kyiv Post.

I grant you all that I have more interest in this than the average American, but do you still not find this story undercovered and fascinating? Or is it just me?
