The only thing that restrains them is...

The only thing, which restrains BYuT from voting for the beginning of the impeachment procedure for President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko today, is the fixed date of the regular presidential election. BYuT faction leader Ivan Kyrylenko claimed this in parliament on Tuesday, voicing the faction’s indignation with the frustrated voting for the draft laws, necessary for collaboration with IMF.

“Today we have to acknowledge: 5 years ago Ukraine elected an anti-Ukrainian President”, Kyrylenko stressed. “If the parliament did not appoint the regular presidential election on October 25, 2009, the BYuT faction would vote for beginning the impeachment procedure as early as today”.

In addition to traditional accusations of Yushchenko of “destroying the national currency”, “ruining the banking system”, etc., Kyrylenko said something more original: “President Yushchenko, with his not voting in the Verkhovna Rada, occupied an anti-state and anti-Ukrainian position”.
