Here's the reason I ended up not voting against them all:
This past Wednesday, on my way back home from a walk, I was passing this new blue building on Lypska, which had been under construction since the late 1980s, when I was spending my wild high school years in this neighborhood, mainly in the house next door.
The blue building was finished a year or so ago, and there were always expensive black cars parked near it, but no signs identifying what company it belonged to. On Wednesday, though, I noticed two flags and two plaques (one in English, the other in Ukrainian) on the building, and stopped to take a picture - because - surprise, surprise! - it was the main office of the Party of Regions headed by Victor Yanukovych.
As you can see, a huge guy, a guard, immediately started walking toward me. He told me it was prohibited to take pictures there - I asked him why - he said, "Because" - I asked him why I couldn't take a picture of a building - he replied, "Devushka, vy sami vsyo prekrasno ponimayete" ("Miss, you know why perfectly well yourself.") - I asked why I couldn't take a picture of a building marked as belonging to the Party of Regions - he didn't give me a convincing answer - I told him he was wrong and that anyone, including tourists, could photograph whatever they wanted in the city - he looked at me as if he knew I wasn't a tourist - and I walked off. Marta was with me, in her stroller, and he kept glancing in her direction as we spoke - incredulous, I guess.
Our conversation was calm, and nothing about him except for his size was too menacing. But it was a disgusting experience, still. Here I am, in my city, and some schmuck is telling me what I can and what I cannot photograph - as if I'm shooting inside his apartment and not in the street. Just imagine what life here would be like if all 147 parties registered in Ukraine (or whatever the number is now) start acting like folks from the Party of Regions.
By the time I reached home, I realized that, just like in 2004, voting against them all wouldn't be enough.
