New Parliament to Destabilize, Embarrass Ukraine: Expert | Analysis & Opinion | RIA Novosti

WASHINGTON, October 27 (RIA Novosti) - A number of leaders in the new Ukrainian parliament are from previously obscure extremist groups, and can be expected to try and force a new wave of intolerance and muzzling of debate and criticism within Ukraine, Martin Sieff, veteran US foreign correspondent told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

"The real victors in these elections are the neo-fascist extremists," Sieff said, adding that the results will be hailed as a triumph for moderate mainstream American and European-style democracy in Washington and Brussels, however they will be anything but. "This parliament will prove to be a deep embarrassment to the European and American leaders who are so rashly welcoming it. It will be part of the new wave of reckless neo-nationalism, intolerance and racism that we already see sweeping Central Europe from Poland to Hungary," he added.

According to Sieff the prevalence of new and previously marginal extremist parties in the new parliament is certain to prove destabilizing and troublesome.

"It is a universal myth in the West that the simple fact of holding elections will make government and economic progress in those countries more stable and successful," Sieff said. "We have already seen in Egypt and Iraq that this is not always the case. We are about to see that lesson repeated in Ukraine," he noted.

Ukraine's parliamentary elections are likely to lead to increased instability and internal communal conflicts rather than reduce them, the journalist asserted.

According to the exit polls, the Petro Poroshenko Bloc is leading Ukraine's snap parliamentary elections on Sunday with around 23 percent of the ballot as seven political parties have passed the vote threshold.
