All it took was an economic crisis...


...to bring these two crazy kids back together. Let's hope it lasts this time.

NYT: After months of political discord that threatened Ukraine’s ability to respond to deepening financial problems, the country’s pro-Western leaders announced Wednesday that they had patched up their differences and would not call new elections. Prime Minister Yulia V. Tymoshenko announced in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, that she had formed a new parliamentary coalition with allies of the president, Viktor A. Yushchenko, and a small third party. Ms. Tymoshenko and Mr. Yushchenko both favor closer ties to the West, but they have regularly feuded since they came to power in the so-called Orange Revolution of 2004.

The once high-flying Ukrainian economy has been battered by the financial crisis, and the country has sought an emergency $16.5 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund.

You hope? Did you really say you hope that a nationalist and populist will join their efforts to compete with a mafia man? What a cheerful alternative you offer to Ukraine... :)

Or was that Vladimir Ilyich?
