'Rescuing" Ukraine from Russia

The Boxer’s Punch
KIEV/BERLIN (Own report) – With help of the Boxing World Champion,
Vitali Klitschko, the CDU-affiliated Konrad Adenauer Foundation is in
the process of establishing a pro-EU party in the Ukraine. In April
2010, shortly following the collapse of the Ukrainian pro-EU
government of President Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Yulia
Tymoshenko, Klitschko founded the party UDAR (in English “Punch”). The
Konrad Adenauer Foundation is supporting this project as much as
possible. The CDU explicitly admits that the foundation “assigned”
Klitschko the task “of establishing” a Christian conservative party in
the Ukraine. The boxer’s popularity should raise UDAR to third place
in the Ukraine’s fall parliamentary elections. The party’s success
could be the prerequisite for creating a permanent pro-EU majority in
the Ukraine – if the currently imprisoned Yulia Tymoshenko’s
“Fatherland” party, which also orients its policy on Berlin and
Brussels, maintains its electoral strength. Recently Elmar Brok (CDU),
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the European
Parliament, told Vitali Klitschko about Berlin’s interests in the
Ukraine. According to Brok, “this key East European country” should
neither for geopolitical, nor for economic reasons, be lost to Russia.
