Yanukovych responded today, during a visit to Kherson, to the highly critical PACE report which was published several days ago on the 25th of January.
"I'm used to discussions on the language of facts. If there are facts, what is there to talk about? I'm prepared for discussions at any level. I'm always only interested in concrete actions," said Yanik.
Ah, lucidity - its a gift the PM possesses..
And why aren't the opposition using this report - an arsenal of ammunition with which to 'bash' the Yanuk government and anti-crisis coalition?
Just one quote from the report:
"On 11 January, the Verkhovna Rada was scheduled to elect the new [Ukrainian Parliament Human Rights] Ombudsperson. To our indignation, however, the ruling coalition parties presented the candidature of the same person [Nina Karpachova] that had discredited the independence of the Ombudsman's office in Ukraine for months.
