Klitschko will have to fight

His presidential candidacy could prove to be the hardest fight for Vitali Klitschko, the public radio broadcaster Deutschlandfunk comments, and questions the ex-boxer's political talent: "Klitschko's reputation for honesty is intact, and beside him, the two other opposition leaders [Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Oleh Tyahnybok] appear small not just in terms of size. The other two disappeared when all three were fiercely criticised for shaking Yanukovych's hand after signing the agreement in the presence of the EU foreign ministers. Klitschko apologised to the masses, and said he'd wanted to stop the bloodshed. His next sentence, however, showed a lack of political talent. He said that Yanukovych would never resign, and that such an idea was unrealistic. Maidan itself was far more unrelenting, however, and presented an ultimatum. And you can't put this down to inexperience. Klitschko's been in politics for ten years, since the Orange Revolution. He ran for the office of mayor of Kiev in 2006 and 2008 - and lost."
