Ukraine President Has Still NOT Signed a Bill for 125 Million in Aid for Epidemic!

I am not going to get into the Politics of what is going on in the Ukraine - that is a totally different subject - but this article - has information, which I posted about around the 7th of November.

The Ukraine President has had on his desk for almost a Week now - a Bill that authorizes 125 million in aid to help with the Epidemic. He STILL HAS NOT SIGNED IT!


KIEV, November 11 (Itar-Tass) -- Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko has accused President Yushchenko of failing to take the necessary measures to fight the flu epidemic, hoping it would serve as an excuse for disruption of the presidential election due on January 17, 2010.

Timoshenko was speaking at a Cabinet meeting after the president delayed the signing of a law to disburse 125 million dollars for anti-epidemic measures.

“I demand that the president should sign this law today and enable the government to purchase everything necessary, including the vaccine,” Timoshenko said. She claimed that “the president’s eight-day-long deliberate reluctance to sign the law to disburse money for anti-epidemic measures was an act running counter to the interests of Ukraine.”

“The president is responsible personally for each single person who is sick or dying today,” Timoshenko said.

The first deputy chief of the presidential secretariat, Alexander Shlapak, earlier advised the head of state to decline the law on financing the struggle against the epidemic, because the document contained many flaws.
