It's hard to realize that it was just a few months ago that the whole Ukrainian election was up for grabs and it wasn't at all clear that the good guy would win. Now a few months later the good guy is steamrolling all over the place, looking into past corruption and making good contacts all over Europe. And we can thank Aussiegirl for all the work she's done in keeping us abreast of developments--and is continuing to do.
