and the next round has begun

Looks like Yanukhovych is up to his old pre-Orange Revolution tricks and press freedom in Ukraine is again under attack.

Our Ukraine Bloc blames the Party of Regions of Ukraine for the situation around TV-radio channel “Chornomorka”, which is in danger of closing. ...

It seems to me that having got used to brutal, violent and illegal methods of struggle against the media during its reign at Kuchma times, The Party of Regions has not deprived of authoritative habits and keeps coming up with new forms of pressure on freedom of speech in Ukraine. ...

Such attitude towards the media not only discredits our state in the eyes of international community but also hampers the process of formation of a civil society in Ukraine and a lawful state.
