Now look at some of the rare treasures I’ve stumbled upon in the Letters section (Ctrl C, Ctrl V):
'I have stood up for your interests and will keep doing it', – Nadiya from Poltava region
Dear Victor Fedorovych,
I have struggled for your interests and I will keep doing it and I pray for you. I wish you knew how much it costs me. We have a farm but my husband is very ill. People assault on us because of you.
As long as my heart beats, I'll stand by you. You will win!
Orzhytskyi district, Poltava region
Or how about this one:
"Dear Viktor Fedorovych, the people, the Constitution and the law are on your side," reads a letter from Anatoliy Aleksandrovich
In view of this, you and your party comrades should not make any decisions which would contravene your pre-election promises. The President will not dissolve parliament. Even if the parliament is dissolved, your political party can get about 50% of the national vote, provided that the Party of Regions honors its pre-election promises.
If your party comrades deviate from their pre-election promises, your party may get less votes. If you abandon formation of the coalition (that is to say by removing communists), you will be definitely crushed.
The coalition which was formed should not be reformatted. Anybody who wants may join it. However, any ultimatums, for example, "We will join only if they are removed," are unacceptable.
You should follow a firm, tough line with the "orange". They view your compromise steps as weakness. The year 2004 exemplified it.
The fact that you won elections means that the Ukrainian people entrusted their future in your hands, and they agree with your program.
The main thing is that the law is on your side. And they should not even try to adopt another unlawful decision, similar to the 2004 ruling of the Supreme Court which was not based on any legislative norm.
I wish you health and success.
Here's one hell of a letter, worth UNICEF's attention:
"Every day we wear POR scarves and carry flags with us!', Mykhailo, a schoolboy from Zakarpat'ya (Western Ukraine)(Click on the link. Don't miss the visuals.)
Dear Victor Fedorovych,
Mykhailo, the 8-th year schoolboy from a Tyachiv comprehensive school, addresses you.
Back in 2004, during the presidential elections, my family and I were very worried about you. We gave you a lot of support in the run-up for the post of Ukraine's president. I delivered election campaign symbols and wore a blue ribbon on my sleeve. Though it turned out otherwise. My father was sacked – an orange 'plague' came to power.
At the moment we are getting ready for the elections again and are anxious about You and the Party of Regions. My friends and I are spreading election campaign symbols again and we are worried about your victory.
Every day we wear POR scarves and carry flags on our shoulders. We are canvassing young people for POR, because here is our future.
When we win, and I believe in that, I'd like to ask you for help – arranging an animal shelter in our area. This is my dream. I am sure that you will pay attention to my request and I thank you very much indeed. I'm enclosing the photos taken in my room – a ' Yanukovych mini-headquarters'.
With great respect and gratitude – Mykhailo

From the speech at IX congress of Party of regions
Dear electors! Sixteen years ago a fate gave us a historical chance – independent sovereign Ukraine. The primordial dream of the Ukrainian people, which was forged in liberation battles for ages become true. The country of Ukrainians stoped to be fata morgana. It is filled up with plans and ambitions of people and politicians to build prosperous and strong country with happy citizen based on the one of the oldest European nation.The interesting thing is, her resume hasn’t been updated. Apparently, in "one of the oldest European nation" some happy citizens' careers can be more dynamic than their Web sites.
