One of the reasons the Ukraine is in such debt is probably that so much state money was diverted into private hands, leaving the public with the obligation to repay.

That, and the fraud and corruption that goes along with day to day business there. They need a lot more transparency and accountability. A web site that showed parliament’s day to day activity would be a good start.

According to interfax.com, 11:18 AM Feb 24, the parliament voted to spend $200,000,000 (two hundred million dollars) for a presidential poll. How can anyone spend two hundred million dollars for a poll?

I stumbled over the information on interfax.com. If we are to keep track of this type of activity, we need a special web site.
