Ukraine to Become Parliamentary Republic?

Good piece in today's Russian 'Kommersant'

A quote : "The Ukrainian Supreme Rada voted to override the president’s veto on the bill on the state government late last week, turning Ukraine into a parliamentary republic. Nearly all tools of power will go to Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich, President Viktor Yushchenko becoming a purely nominal figure."

The full Russian text, which can be read in Ukrainian in 'Korespondent'. The author suggests BYuT's motive in supporting the motion to override the president's veto is to force Yuschenko into calling early VR elections.
