Ruslana takes part in Ukrainian elections

The Ukrainian pop star Ruslana, winner of the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest, threw her support firmly behind Viktor Yushchenko in Ukraine's recent parliamentary elections.

She's been receiving some criticism for it, as this blog post indicates, but she's really just doing the same as American entertainment celebrities who pubicly supported John Kerry in the last American election.

I think it just shows she is far more "progressive" than most of the folks who like to wear that label.
