Ukraine: Coalition-Building Saga

A roundup of posts on yet another Ukrainian coalition-building saga: In-depth political analysis from Tetyana Vysotska of What's up, Ukraine?, including the latest item on the newly-formed coalition, which, despite having a name – “National Development, Stability, and Order” – appears to be “not constitutional.” LEvko of Foreign Notes wrote earlier this month about the possibility of the Party of Regions/BYuT coalition, the president's alarmist response to these speculations – and the Party of Regions’ indignant response issued after a different coalition was formed. Leopolis wrote that “politicians have reached a coalition deal only when the crisis has started to bite harder.” Chernobyl and Eastern Europe wrote that “[e]ven if the new coalition has a parliamentary majority, don’t expect much to change.”
