 AZAROV. THE ONE AND ONLY.

At one moment he advises people against smoking, the next he recalls the days when he was cheerful and resourceful, and then he becomes extremely cheerful and directly states: "Everything is good in the country and the prospects for next year are good." Not a Prime Minister but some kind of animator. However, he is probably ex - Prime Minister. Azarov is no longer on the same wave with Viktor Yanukovych.

One may laugh at the Mayan calendar and other apocalyptic nonsense but it seems a local "end of the world" will happen this year. Yes, yes, Mykola Azarov is apparently leaving the Cabinet of Ministers. However, be cautious about breaking out the champagne so as not to scare the luck off.


A highly placed source in the Cabinet stated that all signed letters of resignation from the Cabinet have already been received by the Presidential Administration. "President Viktor Yanukovych will sign all resignations and issue appropriate orders. During next week the current Prime Minister, his deputies and ministers will be transferred to the Rada," said the source. "For the time remaining until the election of a new Cabinet Valeriy Khoroshkovskyy will be in charge," he added.

With a high chance of being right we can say that Azarov will step down. To his beloved cabbages and shovels (Prime Minister once fumed that nobody writes about cabbage becoming cheaper and another time noted that people should pick up shovels and work hard). Field work, so to speak. "From tarpaulin grace into the underground." True, work in the field, that is to say - in the Verkhovna Rada, has serious disadvantages. One of them being that sometimes you get your butt kicked.


Sometimes by accident, sometimes consciously, and with great relish (take the last time they beat author of the language law Kolesnichenko). And you can roll your eyes and talk about him being a sick old man. In the Verkhovna Rada they beat on people in the face and not in accordance with age. And Azarov is not defenseless. The story goes that when he was the head of Tax Service (a terrible period in the modern history of Ukraine), an ambulance would stand by during his meetings. After tongue-lashings from Mr. Azarov his subordinates frequently needed medical assistance. So the recent election of Azarov to honorary member of heart surgeons of Ukraine can be considered well deserved. Designer of hearts, so to speak.


But on the whole, the transition from the Cabinet to the Parliament - is in any a downgrade. Just imagining Azarov vote at a wave of Chechetov's hand seems improbable. Maybe so but his resignation, in any form whatsoever has long been overdue. Just look at what the Prime Minister has been recently doing. At one moment he advises people against smoking, the next he recalls the days when he was cheerful and resourceful, and then he becomes extremely cheerful and directly states: "Everything is good in the country and the prospects for next year are good." Not a Prime Minister but some kind of animator. However, he is probably ex - Prime Minister. Azarov is no longer on the same wave with Viktor Yanukovych.


Mykola Azarov stated that the elections were perfect and no re-election will take place. Viktor Yanukovych using the most ambiguous words admitted that there were violations and re-elections will take place. Downright cognitive dissonance of the power vertical. In general, the Prime Minister is no longer catching mice. And the words 'stabіlity' and 'improvement' can be taught even to a smoking rabbit. Moreover, it is doubtful that the rabbit would speak worse than Azarov.

Therefore, the transition to work Mykola Azarov in parliament is very likely in this situation. It will be easier to negotiate with the IMF and the 'stabіlіty' can be put on someone's younger shoulders. According to Taras Chornovil, there are two candidates for the post of Prime Minister (except Azarov himself). It is a fan of experimenting with hryvnia rate Serhiy Arbuzov and lurking Valeriy Khoroshkovskyy. "Horseradish is not sweeter than radish" as the Ukrainian proverb says. In any event, the parade of resignations has already begun. Tabachnyk and Blyznyuk already left the Cabinet for the parliamentary mandate. It is Mykola Azarov's turn. And there won't be any "I'll be back".
