From the influential 'Frankfurter Rundschau' - analytic article entitled 'Putinism in Kyiv'
[Here's the conclusion ..via Google-translate]
The EU must not be lulled by Yanukovich's Europe-friendly rhetoric, it must make pressure. For liberalization of visa regulations such as Brussels should make a return to the reform process to the condition. Freedom to travel against press freedom. The EU summit in May, will go where it focuses on the Eastern Partnership, could be a good time for it. It also provides the Member States an opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations with Ukraine in order to create further incentives for reform.
Later this month, EU foreign ministers will meet to discuss possible sanctions against Belarus's Lukashenko in power. It is right to show the dictator the red card. The EU should also not only lose sight of the fact that Kiev just turned into a second Minsk.
The whole article is worth reading.. If the Yanukovych-led administration continues on its current path, Ukraine and Belarus.. will ever-more frequently be tagged together as 'problem countries'..
Also this interview in the same newspaper by Ukrainian writer, Yuriy Andrukhovych. Below is an excerpt, again, Google-translated..]
