    Ukraine’s New President to Visit Brussels Before Russia

    MOSCOW — President-elect Viktor F. Yanukovich of Ukraine, who tried during the campaign to shed his reputation as an obedient Kremlin ally, intends to make his first foreign trip after taking office to Brussels, not Moscow, officials said on Tuesday.

    Mr. Yanukovich, whose inauguration is on Thursday, is scheduled to visit the headquarters of the European Union next Monday for meetings with senior officials. He is to hold talks with the president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy; the president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso; and others.

    Later in the week, he is likely to go to Moscow to see President Dmitri A. Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin.

    Mr. Yanukovich’s decision to travel to Brussels seems intended to send a message to the country that he is serious about bolstering relations with Europe and that he will not be beholden to Russia. It may also help in his effort to appeal to voters who supported his opponent, Prime Minister Yulia V. Tymoshenko.

    Ms. Tymoshenko’s base is in western Ukraine, where people tend to yearn for closer ties to Europe and reject Russian influence. Mr. Yanukovich won the Feb. 7 election by 3.5 percentage points by rolling up large margins in eastern Ukraine, which is more oriented toward Moscow.

    The Kremlin offered no reaction on Tuesday to Mr. Yanukovich’s decision to go to Brussels first. Under the departing Ukrainian president, Viktor A. Yushchenko, relations with Russia were very tense, and Russian officials seem pleased about just not having to deal with him.

    Ms. Tymoshenko, who dropped her legal challenge over the election on Saturday, is refusing to step down as prime minister, and Mr. Yanukovich is seeking to assemble a coalition in Parliament to dismiss her. His move to woo the West may improve his chances of garnering support from deputies who may otherwise vote for her.

    Europe has long been worried about political instability in Ukraine, which has a large manufacturing economy and serves as a conduit for Russian natural gas.

    In an opinion article in The Wall Street Journal last week, Mr. Yanukovich wrote that he wanted Ukraine to be a bridge between Russia and the West.

    “A Yanukovich presidency is committed to the integration of European values in Ukraine,” he said, later adding, “We are a nation with a European identity, but we have historic, cultural and economic ties to Russia as well.”

        Inauguration was nice. He seemed respectful.

        But I think the door closing in his face is a sign.

          What do you call respectfull? Patriarch Kiril blessing him? Or chosing the son of Prison Boss as Head of his Administration? Or denying Ukraine's aspirations to join NATO in his speech? Or his being unable to sing Ukrainian Anthem?

            From here, I was only able to see parts of it. So I only saw him getting out of the car, walking in, him speaking the words to become president, and all the things presented to him.

              You can judge about him by his guests, and among them a criminal auuthority Yura from Yenakievo (Donbas), formally a Parliament deputy, presently huding away in Monaco and arriving here for the innauguration ceremony of his probably godfather.

              And, besides, European Flag in Europeiska Square was taken down for some reason, instead Kyiv was 'decorated' with Russian Flags.

                Viktor Yanukovich cuts his own wage to 50%

                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

                            (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.

                              Ukraine's Yanukovich suspends membership of Regions Party upon becoming Pres

                              KIEV, March 3 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovich has suspended membership of the Regions Party following his election to the presidential office, spokespeople for the party's press service told Itar-Tass Wednesday.

                              The duties of the party leader have been entrusted to Nikolai Azarov.

                              Ukrainian legislation demands that the country's president be a non-partisan person.

                              Yanukovich took the post of the Regions Party chairman almost seven years ago -- in April 2003.
