It looks like the gloves may have finally come off. Last night, one of the local channels broadcast a broadside from Our Ukraine directed at Party of the Regions. The gist of the half hour show? That the election roster of Party of the Regions contains people who have a serious criminal past. To readers of this blog, this will not be news. LEvko has been posting about this for weeks.
The thing about that program last night was that it was so compelling. It had the style of one of those expose shows in America and it was well done, complete with film footage. I had to keep looking down at the corner to see the Our Ukraine logo to remind me that it was a political commercial.
This is welcome to see. To call these guys shady would be understatement in the extreme. Some of them are just bad and they have a real chance to be elected to the country's Parliament.
HBO should start another series on the mob when the Sopranos ends. Call it, The Verkhovna Rada.
