But there's always a silver lining
According to Interfax, the Ukrainian parliament is considering some guarantees for ex-presidents. I guess this means he won't be walking the plank into the Black Sea anytime soon.
Yulia Tymoshenko said:
"The parliament will soon consider a draft law concerning all former presidents and a certain system of guarantees and protection for them. The future of Leonid Kuchma is not a question for the government. It is up to law enforcement departments to investigate his activities."
