Today, the Orthodox world celebrates the Feast of Theophany, known as Vodokhreshcha in Ukraine.
As expected, President Yushchenko performed his annual ice swimming ritual. Kyiv Mayor Chernovetsky followed suit.
Opposition leader Yanukovych, who prides himself on adhering to the same practice, called in sick.
Meanwhile, PM Tymoshenko flew to Moscow to sign the gas deal. According to some reports, the deal includes a quarterly revision clause that will revise the gas price paid by Ukraine based on the fluctuating price of oil.
The deal reportedly leaves RosUkrEnergo in the cold.
