Editor’s Note:

I believe that the 87 percent figure applies to long-service officers and warrant officers. In short, Yanukovich has the forces’ leadership behind him… that means that the oppos aren’t really in the driver’s seat at all. Yanukovich is playing for time… for time is against the oppos. They simply don’t have the resources to keep people on the streets. Let’s wait and see… “It ain’t over ‘till its over”.
