MP Kseniya Lyapina NUNS: To all viewers and listeners, to all citizens who have experienced stress during the last month, let me apologize on behalf of our entire coalition, our team mates, that we, unfortunately — intentionally or unintentionally — have created, via this adolescent democracy of ours — so immature — that we have created so much stress for society. We Nasha Ukrayina believe that we must overcome this state of adolescence, find political will, lay aside personal fears and concerns, and proceed with fulfilling the tasks you laid out before us. Moreover, I’m confident that we are able to fulfill them.
Lyapina, who ran the Council of Entrepreneurs at the Cabinet of Ministers, comes across as a true-Orange lady.
She steers clear of scandals and turf battles. She does not appear to have a hidden agenda, which puts her in stark comparison with Baloha’s shyrka squad, aka United Center.
The mouth-watering specter of a grand coalition with the Party of Regions — in the name of stabilnist — both seduces and scares Yushchenko. On the one hand, it raises a thin hope of re-election via complex bargaining; on the other hand, it carries the risk of burying whatever approval ratings he has left.
So, realizing that Tymoshenko’s unemployment in 2008 would only boost her employability in 2009, Yushchenko limits himself to a dietary shyrka, or informal grand coalition, as Stepan Havrysh put it. The deputy chief of the National Security and Defense Council used this term in describing the present modus operandi.
Indeed, the extramarital affair with the Party of Regions preserves the formal coalition with BYuT and keeps the Cold War in the Orange camp below its boiling point until further course of action.
As always, everybody wants to rule the world, and that includes both Yushchenko and Tymoshenko.
That’s why Lyapina’s calls for working out a détente, and working for the public good, sound like a cry in the wilderness.
