Some more OP's

37% of Ukrainians trust Yanukovych fully or at least sometimes. Tymoshenko is trusted by an almost identical number of Ukrainians. A lot more detail [in English] from this recent OP here.

Yuriy Lutsenko, leader of the 'People's self-defence' movement does well too [bad news for PoR], as does Vitaliy Klychko, but the most striking statistic is the degree to which all of Ukraine's politicians are mistrusted. Least trusted are VR speaker Oleksandr Moroz and Communist leader Petro Symonenko.

If there were to be VR elections in the near future 36.7% of voters would definitely or probably vote for PoR.

35.2% would definitely or probably would vote for BYuT.

The figure for NU is 25.3%

On the list of 100 richest Ukrainians are 16 'Donetskiye'. Of these, 7 are PoR VR deputies and one is a Socialist party VR deputy. These 16 'Donetskiye' also include Vitaliy Hayduk - secretary of the National Security and Defence Council, deputy prime minister Andriy Klyuyev, and Serhiy Bubka - who is #3 on Yanuk's cell-phone directory list.

Do any of these richest Ukrainians relish the uncertainty of early elections?
