Dirty man for a dirty job?

President Yanukovych today proposed his old pal from the 'bad old days in Donetsk', Viktor Pshonka, for the position of Prosecutor-General of Ukraine.

Parliament will certainly 'rubber stamp' and approve his appointment Thursday.

The big-selling 'Segodnya' newspaper, carries a piece entitled: "Pshonka could probably throw Tymoshenko behind bars, says source".

'The source' considers Pshonka's main task will be to provide a "final solution to the problem Tymoshenko" by "bringing the investigation of abuses in the government of Yulia Tymoshenko to their logical conclusion", and that he will not waver in this matter.

The current 'vlasti' are apparently annoyed that their recent politically inspired, high media profile audit/witch-hunt of Tymoshenko’s government was not as successful as hoped, and did not produce the results they had expected in last Sunday's regional elections.

Pshonka background is distinctly "chequered" to say the least. I have written several blogs in the last few years about this character. Type in his name into this site's search engine for more...

Unless immunity is removed, anti-corruption remains as empty words, or worse. Immunity protects Ukraine's most malignant cockroaches. They are the source of corruption, the same as rats were the source of the bubonic plague.
