Ukraine | West changes attitude to Ukrainian Poroshenko

In Ukraine, the presidential election is coming. Opponents of the Kiev regime are still unable to participate in them, but for those who recognize the government that controls most of Ukraine, there is some semblance of democracy. The incumbent president Poroshenko is fighting for his re-election and is facing stiff competition. Recently, sociologists have shown that Tymoshenko and Zelensky are ahead of him in popularity.

Ukraine | Martial Law Won’t Help Ukraine’s President

Editor’s note. The essence of the article is clearly formulated in it’s last sentence: Poroshenko is not competent leader for securing Ukraine’s clean break with Russia.

USA | US expert threats Ukraine with new ‘colour revolution’

Diane Francis a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center has written an article with slightly hidden threats to Ukrainian president Poroshenko. If he doesn’t change his policy a new Maidan will take place. Maidan is a traditional Ukrainian name for mass street protests against ruling elite. Previous Maidans led to reactionary coups and took to power more and more corrupted nationalist politicians. But Diane Francis doesn’t mention extreme rightists in power, but is able to see corruption: “Unfortunately, 2018 is starting to shape up like 2013. President Petro Poroshenko consolidates his power by foot dragging on reforms promised to Western donors, then by harassing opponents. Like the Yanukovych era, there is no rule of law, no parliamentary accountability, and no effective pursuit of corrupt officials or even of Yanukovych who stole billions. Conditions resemble those that led to the 2004 and 2014 “street” revolutions”.
