New Ukraine Administration Reeling

President Yushchenko fired his prime minister, Tymoshenko, along many other members of his cabinet in the wake of scandals involving his son and others. Tymoshenko says that she will be running for the post of prime minister in the parliamentary elections of 2006. It is sad to see these former allies in the battle to free Ukraine now pitted against each other politically...somewhat reminiscent of the early 1790s and Jefferson and Hamilton's clashes.

Reports from Ukraine say that many of the citizens are very disappointed with the direction that Yushchenko has taken the country and are ready to go out into the streets yet again.
