A good interview well worth watching. However the BBC hasdenonstrated once again they has no idea what is going on in Ukraine. They continue to push their anti Russian bias.

Note the interviewee called for a paliamentry system in liune with other European states.

This is not a East versus West stereo type conflict, as portrayed in the western media and promoted by the US administration. It is false and misleading to present it as such.
The only real long term solution is for Ukraine to initiate constitutional reform, establish a truly democratic Parliamentary system of governance in line with other European States. Remove power from the Office of the President and hold fresh Parliamentary and Presidential elections under the new system and soon as possible. Putting an end to the destructive and divisive personal power struggle between the President of Ukraine and the people’s democratically elected Parliamentary representatives.

Americans do not have a parliamentary system and as such they do not understand the benefits of a parliamentary democracy. Canada,Great britain, Australia, Scandinavia and all or Europe except France) are governed under a Parliament system.

If Ukraine wants to become part of Europe then it should model itself on European systems and adopt European values and not have forced on them the dictates of Presidential rule. Democracy is about representing the people and rule of law not Presidential decrees based on the wishes of the minority.

Fresh elections without constitutional reform will do noting to resolve Ukraine's ongoing political crisis and the personal power struggle between the President of Ukraine and the Parliament.

As long as Yushchenko remains President Ukraine will be continue to suffer perpetual political crisis.
