Ukrainiana writes about "suspicions of sabotage from the would-be opposition" and some of the steps taken to not let it happen:
[...] Confronted with a hostile environment and a razor-thin vote margin, the Orange Coalition is offering the would-be opposition a cornucopia of political pacifiers, including the First Vice-Speaker post and control over key parliamentary committees. [...]
Ukrainska Pravda (UKR) and Korrespondent.net (RUS) have both picked up a LigaBusinessInform item (RUS) on the "enemy within" factor: this time, it's Vladislav Kaskiv, who - according to LigaBusinessInform's "reliable sources" - has recently had a surgery and is likely to skip Tuesday's vote. His absence would obviously make the already "razor-thin vote margin" even thinner.
Although Kaskiv's plans for Tuesday aren't a certainty yet, few readers at Korrespondent.net busy themselves with this consideration. Some are making guesses as to what kind of surgery he could've had - and here're their bets:
- circumcision (comment #8)
- brain removal surgery (comment #10)
- appendectomy (comment #25)
- zit removal surgery (comment #25)
- ingrown toenail removal (comment #37)
- hemorrhoids removal (comment #40)
- sex change operation (comment #55)
We here think it could have been liposuction.
