Yulia Tymoshenko's success in Ukraine

According to the latest results, the opposition party led by Yulia Tymoshenko has become the strongest political party with 33 percent of the vote, followed closely by Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovitch's pro-Russian Party of Regions, which is estimated to have won 29 percent. Maxim Stricha of the Kiev Institute for Open Politics writes about Yulia Tymoshenko: "She knows what the people want and has promised to fulfil their desires. She is the one people are most likely to believe. Yet this is highly dangerous for our country, because if her plans and campaign promises are implemented - for example that of paying Ukrainians compensation for bank savings that were lost following the collapse of the Soviet Union - it could ruin our economy. If Yulia Tymoshenko becomes prime minister, President Victor Yushchenko will be reduced to the role of a subordinate functionary. If he doesn't comply Ukrainians will expect early presidential elections."
