What's Happening in Ukraine and What's the Significance of It All?



Here are links to four interesting posts on the Ukrainian presidential elections.

Was Mr. Viktor Yushchenko poisoned? For an interesting story, go here. It rather looks as if he wasn't.

Last Friday the Guardian (London) ran two interesting stories. Jonathan Steele writes that"Yushchenko got the U.S. nod, and money flooded in to his supporters." See"Ukraine's postmodern coup d'etat" here.

And James Meek reports on former economist Yulia Tymoshenko, who is heavily involved in Ukrainian politics and backs Yuschenko. See"The millionaire revolutionary" here.

Over at counterpunch.org Professor Gary Leupp of Tufts University writes that"Poll Results Aren't the Real Issue" and examines how Ukraine features in geopolitics. Go here to read the story.
