Lutsenko Goes On
Interior Minister Resists Rada’s Furlough, Says Constitution on His Side

One of the three untouchables in the Yanukovych Cabinet, Interior Minister Lutsenko has ignored a parliamentary bid to temporarily relieve him of his duties.
An investigation commission has been set up in the Anticrisis-controlled Rada to conduct a probe into his activities.

With the backing of President Yushchenko and Constitutional lawyers, the besieged Minister has stood his ground. It is still unclear whether the three ministers (Interior, Exterior, and Defense) will quit on their own volition, leaving the Yanuke Cabinet to its own devices.

Why mess with Lutsenko, anyway? There's no explanation other than he must have been a real pain in the ass for the immaculate region whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, will remain undisclosed.
