Not So Easy Rider — New Ukraine Poll Reveals Collapse Of War Party, Voters Drop Pro-Nato Candidates Oleg Lyashko, Arseny Yatseniuk, Yulia Timoshenko, And Oleg Tyagnibok | Dances With Bears

By John Helmer, Moscow

After the steady rise of enthusiasm for war in Ukraine voter polls through the summer, Ukrainian politicians in favour of the military campaign against Donetsk, Lugansk, and Russia, have suffered a dramatic loss of support across the country.

This was reported in Kiev on September 3. In the first countrywide poll taken since the Ukrainian Army took heavy casualties and retreated from the Donbass at the end of August, voters who had supported the pro-war Radical Party, led by Oleg Lyashko (2), have dropped from 22.2% to 13.1%. Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk’s (3) bloc, Patriots of Ukraine, which includes the police and national guard minister, Arsen Avakov (4), has collapsed from more than 9% to 3.7%. Yulia Timoshenko’s (6) Fatherland party has fallen below her former proteges to 3.5%. The Svoboda (“Freedom”) party of Oleg Tyagnibok (1), the candidate of the US Embassy in Kiev and the State Department, and Pravy Sektor (“Right Sector”), the party behind the national guard formations fighting in the east, have lost virtually all their support outside the far western regions of the country; across the Ukraine they are now polling just 2.5% and 1%.

The parliamentary election scheduled for October 26, according to US and Ukrainian sociologists in Kiev “can now be predicted by the misery index – rising war casualties, rampant inflation and unemployment – plus fear of winter.”

Also this...

On August 26, Bogomolets launched an attack on the performance of the Turchinov-Yatseniuk government, as well as those Ukrainian oligarchs who have financed the war in the east. “It would be desirable to see on a peculiar parade of shame by separate columns – a battalion of oligarchs, a company of media liars, regiments of immoral judges and corruption divisions, in all their ‘beauty’… people should see who hides behind our independence while in Ukraine blood is shed…From the point of view of elementary mathematics, the chances to win against Russian force and arms [are] zero, not even if not only the men, but also all women and children were sent to the front line… But the heaviest victory for Ukraine consists in the fight against internal enemies. This must take place with severity but without blood. Once Ukraine should become independent of oligarchs and corruption – that will be our first step to independence and advantage.”
