A One Billion Request for Funds to Fight Virus 3 days Ago - Not Signed Yet 11/7/09 7:15am est

The Prime Minister of the Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, requested 3 days ago UAH One Billion to fight the Virus from the President Viktor Yuschenko, but the President has not signed the law or request yet!

From Article:

Uzhgorod, November 7 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has called on President Viktor Yuschenko to urgently sign the law on allocating UAH 1 billion to fight the epidemic of flu and acute respiratory viral infections.

She said this after visiting Zakarpattia Regional Infectious Diseases Hospital in Uzhgorod on Saturday.

"I'm asking the president to urgently sign this law and help the government and the Health Ministry receive these one billion hryvnias, because without these funds our system on the purchase of medical equipment and medications will significantly slow," Tymoshenko said.

She said that "we submitted this law to the president three days ago, and we have yet to receive an answer [from the president], as this is the only request to the president."

Why the Hell has the President ignored this Only request to him? Why hasn't he signed this law, especially in light of the fact his country is being swept by an killing virus/plague?
