Thats the only word I can think of to describe the current situation for Ukraine.

As speculated here yesterday Yuri Yekhanurov's nomination for the post of Prime Minister failed to recieve the neccessary approval in parliament.

The blame? Can largely be placed on ex-P.M Yulia Tymoshenko. It comes as no suprise that Kuchma supporters blocked the nomination but quite frankly as a more 'democratic' party, better should be expected from the former P.M's bloc. It would suit Ukraine's interests for Yekhanurov or anyone to be nominated as P.M rather than a continuation of the current standoff. Unfortunately Tymoshenko seems more interested in serving her own personal interests than anyone elses. Sitting in the corner sulking wont reinstate her as Head of Government, its time to move forward, the Ukrainian people deserve a government.
