Nobody is joining the CES, so relax. Yuschenko is just sweet-talking to Russia because apparently she's still mad about last October elections.

Yushchenko is in a screwed up position, having failed to join the WTO or the EU, having pissed off the Russians, having collapsed growth from 12.7% to 4% and inflation of 15% (highest in Europe), having imports outstrip exports for the first time (thus running a deficit), having skyrocketing energy costs (no more special relationship with Russia, now he gets to pay world prices) and having destroyed several markets by price fixing (another socialist economic jewel). Deny all you want, but the first 8 months of the Yushenko-Tymoshenko Road Show has been a singular disaster for Ukraine, so much so that even Union was criticizing him.
