source: jurnal.md



One of Viktor Yanukovich’s first steps as president was reducing his own wage by half.

Besides, he ordered the number of administration employees, vehicles and expenditure to be reduced with 50%.

This way, he intends to save money for increasing ordinary citizens’ pensions and earnings.

According to Ukrainskie Novosti, former president Yuschenko earned about 60.000$ yearly.

This criminal has so far done nothing but harm, and will do a lot more of it.
The puppeteer tycoons give him enough money - he could happily reduce his wages by 100%.
By the way, whom do you mean by 'cirtus nazis'?

Yanukovych seeks new, EU- friendly image with Brussels trip

Quote:
(KIEV) - Ukraine's new president, Viktor Yanukovych, will make his first foreign trip Monday, visiting Brussels in a bid to reshape his image as a Kremlin stooge and cast himself as a champion of EU integration.

Yanukovych, who was inaugurated Thursday, will meet European Union president Herman Van Rompuy as well as the European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso and EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton.

By making his first foreign trip to Brussels rather than to Moscow, where he is due March 5, Yanukovych is aiming to soften his pro-Russian image and reassure Europeans of his intentions, analysts said.

"He needs to demonstrate that he is not a Russian stooge," said Amanda Paul, an analyst at the European Policy Centre in Brussels.

Russia had been hoping for warmer relations with Ukraine under a Yanukovych presidency after years of confrontation with the country's last president, the fervently pro-Western Viktor Yushchenko.

Yanukovych's trip could even "provoke a jealous reaction in Moscow," said Dmitriy Vydrin, an independent political analyst in Kiev.

In comments likely to be welcomed in Brussels, a top Yanukovych aide said ahead of his trip that he would not seek to bring Ukraine into a Moscow-backed customs union comprising Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

"The customs union directly contradicts and will severely complicate Ukraine's membership in the WTO," said Irina Akimova, Yanukovych's first deputy chief of staff.

Therefore "this cannot be the issue of today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow," Akimova said in comments posted Saturday on the website of Ukraine's Inter television channel.

Russia had earlier suggested that Ukraine could join the customs union. But any such move by Kiev would irritate the EU, which is in talks with Ukraine on creating a free-trade zone and is keen to keep the country from falling into Moscow's sphere of influence.

Brussels was alarmed by the prospect of Ukraine joining the customs union because it would be "a revival of the Soviet Union, a complete change of Europe's geopolitical map," a Ukrainian diplomatic source told AFP.

Yanukovych's trip is hotly anticipated, the source added, saying "no other trip has been organised with so much interest" from the European side.

Brussels will need to demonstrate its support for Ukraine, a former Soviet republic of 46 million people strategically located between Russia and the EU, after years of failed bids for closer EU-Ukraine integration.

"The EU should use this opportunity to strengthen relations with Ukraine, pushing for reforms, but offering assistance," said Paul. "The EU should send a strong message that it sees (Yanukovych) as being pro-European."

At the same time Brussels is hoping Yanukovych will implement badly needed economic reforms that have been blocked by the recent years of political instability in Ukraine, the diplomatic source said.

"They are tired of the mess and hope that under Yanukovych the state will start functioning better and that the promises will be kept from now on."

Another hot topic will be supplies of Russian natural gas that transit via Ukraine. The EU will want reassurances that there will be no repetition of the Russia-Ukraine gas disputes of recent years, including the one in January 2009 that disrupted supplies to over a dozen European countries.

Yanukovych will want to discuss the creation of a consortium between Russian energy giant Gazprom and European countries to upgrade Ukraine's pipelines, said Nico Lange of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Kiev.

Under Yushchenko, the participation of Russia in such a consortium would have been unthinkable.
