Today Ukrainians have to choose between their two last remaining presidential candidates. The most popular choice seems to be the Pro-Russian "let's-go-back-to-the-Empire-and-let-Russians-abuse-us-some-more" Yanukovich.
For these reasons, I hoped she would win. That is, until she organized a disgusting religious event, which was a kind of a huge public prayer. I understand that she only did this to score points with some of the more obtuse, uneducated voters. Still, this quasi-religious posturing is really unattractive. And understandably scary.
I feel truly sorry for the Ukrainian voters who now have to choose between two almost equally lousy candidates. Ukraine just doesn't seem to be able to catch a break for the past 350 years.
