Prosecutor-General and State Security Service [SBU] thrown at Tymoshenko
Decision by National Security and Defence Council theoretically opens up path to direct presidential rule
The war between Viktor Yushchenko and Yulia Tymoshenko is gaining momentum. On Wednesday a resolution by the NSDC dated 10th February was announced, [read it here]in which the gas agreements concluded by premiers Tymoshenko and Putin were 'blown to bits'. The agreements were called a threat to the security of the country. The Prosecutor General's office and SBU have been specifically instructed to verify the legality of the actions of the Ukrainian officials (i.e. Tymoshenko) in signing the treaty with Russia.
On Tuesday the head of the parliamentary temporary investigation commission investigating the functioning of the country's gas transport system, Ina Bohoslovskaya, promised to refer the matter to the Prosecutor-General's office, requesting the opening of criminal case against the premier and her removal from office for misuse of her official position during the gas talks with Moscow.
After a decision is made by the NSDC, if the Prosecutor-General's office reveals problems with Tymoshenko, her removal could theoretically take place (Yushchenko wanted to deal with the-then prime minister Viktor Yanukovych during the spring crisis of 2007 in a similar fashion).
What happens next? As we have already written, political scientist Vadim Karasyov, who is close to the presidential secretariat, considers the introduction of direct presidential rule an alternative to the "economic dictatorship of Tymoshenko".
The 'Segodnya' article adds that others are not sure about this. "Yushchenko is not capable of dictatorship, it is not in his character," says Mikhail Chechetov..
