No stage for Yanukovych

In view of ex-prime minister Tymoshenko's situation it's important for the EU politicians to boycott the Euro 2012, writes the liberal daily Eesti Päevaleht: "Even if it's sheerly impossible to boycott every state where human rights are abused, one shouldn't dispense with this instrument entirely. Where a dictatorship has been established for a long time the success of a boycott is questionable. But Ukraine is at a historical crossroads. Either it will soon become a dictatorship or democracy will win out in the autumn elections. Europe must push for the second option with every means at hand. For the politicians in the EU this means boycotting the European Championship. President Yanukovych must not be given a stage for self-promotion. However the spectators should travel to Ukraine to meet the people and get to know the country better. The millions of fans who have been looking forwards to the Euro 2012 for years now deserve this."
