Ukrainian Government Is Illegitimate

By David Morrison

(1) Why the Ukraine regime is wholly illegitimate

The resolution passed by the Rada (the Ukranian Parliament) which is supposed to have impeached and removed President Yanukovych doesn’t even mention impeachment.

The Ukranian constitution allows the Rada to appoint the Prime Minister as an Acting President, in the event of the presidency becoming vacant.  The Rada appointed Olexander Turchynov Acting President even though he wasn’t Prime Minister.

An Acting President has much less power than an elected president, but Turchynov has acted as if he has the powers of an elected president.

(2) UK Parliamentarians are happy to be misled

The British Government has seriously misled both Houses of Parliament about the removal of Ukraine’s elected President from power on 22 February 2014, giving the impression that it was carried out in accordance with the Ukranian constitution in response to popular pressure, when it wasn’t.  But of the 1400 or so Parliamentarians, only one has queried the matter – and the answer he received contained an outright lie.
