There are still many optimists who consider Yanukovych to be just a corrupt paranoid, who can be controlled by the oligarchy who are interested in accessing EU markets. Actually, Yanukovych is seeking violence as a way of pay back, revenge for his 2004 failure. He is using the whole state apparatus for this. He will keep talking about dialogue, but there are no democratic institutions for a dialogue in Ukraine as he usurped power back in 2010.
1) Government is not legitimate since it was formed by an unconstitutional majority;
2) Parliament is also not cleary legitimate;
3) The court system is not legitimate since it operates under the new “law” passed by this “parliament;”
4) The “president” is not legitimate since he is doing nothing neither with the “parliament” nor with the “government” to reestablish constitutional rule, but everything to boost their powers by violating the constitution.
That in this lawless country …
