Ukraine vote on hold after court ruling
Guardian – Nov 26, 2004
Markian Bilynskyj an opposition analyst said that if the supreme court failed to produce the right result for Mr Yushchenko his supporters would set about paralysing the country’s communications network. He suggested army units in the west could disrupt pipelines carrying Russian gas and oil to Europe. Ruslana Lezhychko the Ukrainian winner of the Eurovision song contest announced a hunger strike in support of the opposition. Hundreds of state TV journalists also began protesting. And last night approximately 100 members of a police unit went over to the protesters’ side – one of them read a statement of support and the crowd shouted “Good guys!” As the crowd showed no signs of ebbing – despite a temperature of minus 6C – hopes of a political compromise that would satisfy both sides seemed to fade. Mr Yushchenko also ap peared to reject backroom deals saying any negotiations would be “transparent”.
