Not only has Ukraine advanced to the FIFA World Cup quarterfinals (in a less than inspiring or encouaraging match), but Yulia Tymoshenko will soon return to the prime ministership, heading a revived ‘Orange’ coalition. That was always the only outcome that made sense, though the Party of Regions, which won the irrelevant plurality in the March elections, is not taking it well, promoting a blockade that forced the coalition deputies to meet in parliament’s movie house.
Tymoshenko will immediately face the pressing issue of the conflict with Russia over gas and is calling for a new deal that does not involve intermediary companies. Today there were protests over gas price increases that BBC reports were as big as the Orange Revolution protests of late 2004.
