A lot more people showed up after 6 pm.

Still, the whole thing was somewhat unfocused.

When someone with the microphone tried to start a "Yush-chen-ko!" chant, about one third of the crowd joined in, but as many seemed to be yelling "Han'ba!" ("Shame!"), and a few chanted "Yulia!"...

When they tried to get the crowd to chant "Razom nas bahato, nas ne podolaty!" ("Together we're many, we won't be defeated!"), an old, eccentric-looking nationalist yelled this, quite bitterly: "Razom nas malo, nas ne podolaty!" ("Together we are few, we won't be defeated!").


  1. Ouch, the truth sure hurts. This is bad and will get worse. Yush had better do something or he will loose everything he has worked for.

  2. Vitaju vas z druhoju richnytseju pomaranchevoji revoliutsiji! The domestic politics are a mess, but be heartened: they are not better elsewhere. Two years ago, you put Ukraine on the world map, and brought recognition to your country and society. This gain can never be taken away. You should be proud of what you accomplished. The outside world no longer thinks of you just as the country of Chernobyl.
