Ukrainian Party of Regions to protect citizens in the face of political purges
The Ukrainian Party of Regions will again be trying to protect and defend citizens in the face of political purges which began with the formation of the orange coalition government. The Party of Regions, led by ex-prime minister Viktor Yanukovich, said Thursday that highly qualified men and women who were doing their best for Ukraine were the first to be found redundant. The Party of Regions finds political persecution inadmissible. More than 18,000 employees of the executive branch of power were fired by orange President Yushchenko and orange prime minister Timoshenko about two years ago.
Is this the beginning of a process to separate East Ukraine from West Ukraine?
