Ukraine PACE delegation showing signs of maturity?

January 22, 2013

Well, without fisty-cuffs, bribery, coercion, scandal, or even a raised voice, the Ukrainian delegation to PACE has managed to sort itself out administratively – probably due to the fact that the meeting to discuss the Ukrainian PACE delegation organogram was delayed by bad weather as participants were stuck at various European airports, thus reducing the time for showboating around “positions” and “interests” and forcing all involved to head directly to their the base positions of “needs” between scheduled PACE meetings.

As a result the composition of the Ukrainian PACE delegation and PACE committees have been resolved – swiftly – with equal representation for Ukrainian majority and minority politicians.

My only comment relates to the fact that the United Opposition could find nobody better than Serhiy Sobolev to fill the position of Deputy Chairman in that international role.  There must surely have been better people to take it on than him.
