Fading orange

Little over a week after they celebrated the second anniversary of the 2004 Orange Revolution, the Ukrainian Parliament (the Verkhovna Rada) sacked two of the revolution's figureheads: MFA Borys Tarasyuk and Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko.

The President and Parliament are still quarreling over the legitimacy of this last move. This will lead to case in front of the Constitutional Court when the President challenges this decision. During the Orange Revolution a compromise was reached were key Ministers in the government are appointed by the President and approved of by the Parliament.

Meanwhile the Revolution's Jeanne d'Arc, Yuliya Tymoshenko, MP, tries to initiate a referendum on the dissolution of parliament.

Куди йдеш, Україно?
