Oleksandr Moroz wasn't at Maidan last night. Earlier, at the parliament, he made a comment about the agreement he had with Yushchenko on the political reform: that there were just the two of them, no witnesses, when they reached that agreement, so he knew better than Yulia Tymoshenko what the agreement was exactly.

I only read this comment but didn't see it on TV, until now. What he actually said was that he was at Yushchenko's home then, because Yushchenko was sick, and there was no one but him and Yushchenko, and that he didn't need mediators, even those who appeared to be pretty and female ("...Ya ne potrebuyu poserednykiv, navit' u vyhlyadi zhinok, zovni sympatychnyh."). He meant Yulia Tymoshenko, and said it as if she was someone's secretary or something, not a politician who had helped Yushchenko get those 39.9 percent in the first round, before Moroz agreed to join in.

The parliamentarians voted soon afterwards, and while Yushchenko's Our Ukraine bloc, Tymoshenko's bloc and the Center Group didn't cast a single vote, 19 of Moroz's Socialists voted 'yes.' But they need Yushchenko and Tymoshenko's votes to pass the political reform, so in the end it was the opposition that sort of won yesterday.

Here's what I wrote about Moroz a month ago, right after the first round of the election:

The two guys who got slightly less than 6 percent each are Moroz and Symonenko, a Socialist and a Communist. Moroz used to be together with Yushchenko and the opposition for a while - but then they split and, now that it looks like Yushchenko needs to get some of those additional votes in the second round, Moroz is negotiating with both Yushchenko and Yanukovych. He must feel like a king now - everyone's well-being depends on him. And Yanukovych has announced that his program has a lot in common with those of Moroz and Symonenko.

I wanted to call Moroz a slut then, but he took Yushchenko's side way too fast. Kurva.
