Cabinet cancels meeting

By Aussigirl

According to the BBC, the Ukrainian Cabinet today cancelled a planned meeting after protestors barred entrance to the Cabinet building. Protestors have vowed to stay in Independence Square in Kyiv until Yushchenko is sworn in. Yanukovych has appealed the results of the election to the election commission. If that fails he has vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court. Evidently the election will not be declared finally over until all appeal have been exhausted.

Yanukovych aspires, obviously, to become the Al Gore of Ukraine. I wish him much luck and fully as much success as Al Gore had in this country. Full speed ahead, Yanu -- more power to you. The people will just wait until you are finally gone. Then you can grow a beard and get fat and start screaming your head off like your hero.

Let`s hope that Yanu has the same results as Al (blood and)Gore. The danger here is that Ukraine has a more powerful neighbor intervening. (The Russkies, I`m sure, would have liked Gore to become President, also, but lacked the power to influence our election-despite George Soros and Move-on.org.)I am worried about the extent of Moscow`s influence on Ukrainian courts, and about Moscow ``making an offer they can`t refuse``.

Aussiegirl, I learn something new every time I come to your site! As always, time well spent!
