Ukraine: “No Go from NATO”

A roundup on Ukraine and NATO: A Fistful of Euros reads Yushchenko's address and isn't surprised “other NATO countries are balking”; Mark MacKinnon writes that granting membership to Ukraine might lead to “further internal strife”; Eternal Remont highlights the Communists’ “sophisticated and highly nuanced policy position”; Ukrainiana posts a video of another Ukrainian political group greeting Bush; Orange Ukraine posts a note on the four years of NATO's words and deeds regarding Ukraine's membership, writes about the “craven capitulation of Germany and France to Russia,” and reports on this year's pathetic April Fool's Day in Odesa, followed by an anti-NATO rally: “Since Odesa has been dragged down into the leaden stupidity of politics, the citizens can't muster the light wittiness that made the city so unique.”
