So I turned on the 9 am news but instead got Sergei Parajanov's Ashik Kerib on a wrong channel (K1, I guess it's called). A wonderful reminder that there's life beyond the Ukrainian parliamentary election.


Seems like all the old faces remain, and one of the few new ones we get is the new Kyiv's mayor, Leonid Chernovetsky, and his isn't the nicest face out there, but we'll see. He ran for president in 2004, by the way, and got 128,037 votes (0.45%). And of course, it won't be correct to say there won't be new faces in the new parliament at all: take Andriy Shevchenko, the TV guy, Yulia's #5, for example, or Ruslana, our EuroVision star, Yushchenko's #5.
