Keeps getting more interesting:
    Originally posted by Natalya Zinets/Reuters
    Ukraine's opposition scored a key win Wednesday in its drive to overturn what it says was a rigged election, when parliament sacked the government of Prime Minister and president-designate Viktor Yanukovich.

    Several hurdles remain before opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko can claim outright victory in a crisis that has threatened to tear apart the ex-Soviet state that sits between former master Russia and an expanded European Union.

    The vote passed at the second attempt through secret ballot at an unruly sitting of the assembly, with Yushchenko's backers sporting orange scarves and ties his campaign color.

    "It is an important and serious victory for us but there is still a lot to be done," parliamentary deputy Mykola Tomenko told the crowd in nearby Independence Square, taken over by opposition supporters since the disputed Nov. 21 presidential election.

    The opposition has vowed to use "People Power" to win demands for a new election soon.

    Approval came just before the start of efforts by international mediators to help settle the crisis. Deputies had also voted to create an interim "government of national trust."

    Outgoing President Leonid Kuchma made clear he would not easily give up his battle with the opposition, rejecting its key demand the presidential run-off his protege won be held again.

    "Any rerun would simply be a farce. I cannot see it in any other way and I will never support it as it would be unconstitutional," he told a meeting of economic officials.
Good.

Think Putin is sweating right now?

Just a comment:

In the last thread, someone (I think you Grimis) criticized the Europeans for not getting involved. Well, they have been getting involved, and are going to continue to get involved in this process.

Just a quick response to yet another bash of the Europeans by some people here.



Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

That was me. I actually criticized Western Europe for not getting involved, as the Poles and the Czechs have been involved early on because of their common backstory in decommunization. I still see nothing about the EU, France, Germany etc. getting involved.

Incidentally, there are some conspiracy theories accusing Yanukovich of having Yuschenko poisoned...

Well except that in almost every story on the matter, such as in this one (dw-world.de) the EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solano is mentioned as being involved in the process and working with all the sides.
