Ukraine: “Tension is Growing”

Foreign Notes reviews Ukraine's relationship with Gazprom prior to Yulia Tymoshenko's 2009 deal (“for which she may be jailed for seven years”); quotes economist and politician Oleksandra Kuzhel on the conditions in which small- and medium-sized Ukrainian businesses have found themselves in; and writes about the expensive watches “so beloved by Ukraine's flashy elites” and about the uncivilized ways of PM Mykola Azarov's bodyguards, concluding: “When are people going to say, ‘Enough is enough?'”
