He was impeached and removed. He has no standing.
Heeere it comes, Putin’s ambassador to FR.
NSDC secretary: Russian plan failed, Ukraine to preserve its territorial integrity
Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Secretary Andriy Parubiy has said he believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the world against himself and will find himself in international isolation.
“I’m confident that the plan drafted by the Russian Federation has already failed, and I’m confident that we can preserve the territorial integrity and sovereignty of our country. The whole world has currently sided with Ukraine and, in fact, Putin, who prepared a brilliant victory over Ukraine, will currently find himself in complete international isolation,” he told reporters in parliament on Monday.
“He was impeached and removed. He has no standing.”
Correct- as I recall the vote against him in the Ukrainian parliament was 300-0 to impeach him.
So it’s not like a mob just forced him out of office- it was a unanimous vote of parliament.
Weird Al Yanukovych now has plenty of time to write more silly songs.
So he’s asking for Russian military be sent into Ukraine proper, and not just used to secure Crimea. Interesting.
Actually in the end of Rocky IV they made friends with us at the end because they respected Rocky. Kerry is even an idiot on movies.
He could have picked Dr. Strangelove, Fail Safe, even Spies Like Us.
A vote of parliament he didn’t even stick around
for. When you flee your position, you don’t own it
When you seek to have a foreign power invade your own country, you are not a leader, you are a traitor.
PUTIN = HITLER
Immaculate Mary chase Putin away!
Who's "Nazi ultranationalist??"
“Kerry is even an idiot on movies.”
John F’n Kerry is an idiot PERIOD. He has no limitations.
Yanukovych is to Putin as 0.00 is to Soros.
I don't think so. EU will continue to buy energy and trade as usual.
It's nearly like saying the world is going to isolate the USA...we're simply too big to isolate.
Same result as voters sending Democrats to Washington, Communism.
Lol..you guys are kidding right?
Does Presidential impeachment by a show of hands in front of an angry partisan mob really sound legal to you?
I really want to see Green ... I have three minutes!

I demand a new keyboard, my current one is ruinend and I had to type this out using the onscreen windows mousey keyboard...

He was not impeached under the Ukrainian Constitution. There are very limited grounds for impeachment, and a trial must be held, and the Ukrainian Constitutional Court has to review it.
Incorrect. He has not been impeached under the Ukrainian Constitution. That is a fact.
Holding a quick vote in the Rada does not remove the sitting President.
You aren’t supposed to follow the Constitution, silly you!
I was just thinking that this could be a game changer. The narrative has been that Russia was just going to take back Crimea (which was a gift to Ukraine to apologize for cruelty under the USSR. But if they are going to invade the rest of Ukraine and go all the way to Kiev? That’s really going to make thigs difficult.
Yep, I imagine Warsaw isn't thrilled about this, neither.
Which one? He stole so many I can’t keep track anymore.
Probably, in a parliamentary democracy. How does begging a foreign nation to invade your own look, in terms of legality?
A trial? He immediately took off to a foreign country and asked them to use Armed Forces against his country? Surely now there has to be grounds.
“He was impeached and removed. He has no standing”
That has such a nice ring to it, wish the American people were singing that tune.
They did not follow the constitutional procedure for removing Yanukovich.
His removal was clearly unconstitutional.
The procedure is defined in article 112, and they didn’t follow it at all.
Leaving the country for a week is not a resignation, especially when he explicitly says “I do not resign”.
The constitution is not the final arbiter of what is right and wrong. Jefferson said sometimes revolutions are necessary.
But no way was this a constitutional ouster.
Are you referring to the constitution he wrote for himself, or the previous version?
Yanukovych's supporters were driven out of parliament by an angry mob of Soro paid firebomb throwers and the remaining members were surrounded by the same mob of Soros paid firebomb throwers. His removal was hardly legal. It was a stage show.
So was Zelaya (Honduras) but Obama strongly backed him.
‘Are you referring to the constitution he wrote for himself, or the previous version?’
The articles for removing and replacing the president haven’t changed since 1996.
He was legally elected president and thrown out by a small group of protestors. Can we do that here?
I’ll just have to take your word for it, I guess.
Here you go:
I don’t mean to pick a fight, really . . . but Wiki means nothing to me.
Lol...Adriy Parubly is a fascist puppet who's afraid of his own shadow. He will be buried under the Maidan shorty.
A commie calling someone a fascist. LOL!
Adriy Parubly is a founding member of Ukraine’s national socialist party, whether or not he’s a fascist really isn’tup for debate is it?
Let me know when you compile your list of the differences between a fascist and a communist. Thanks!
I’m not close to it but it looks like they needed 338 votes to impeach and they only had 328. Do you happen to know if that’s accurate?
Exactly, and that case was clearly according to the Constitution of Honduras.
They also needed Ukraine’s Supreme court to review and certify the result, but those guys haven’t been heard from in quite some time.
