UKRAINE - Leonid Kuchma overtaken by justice

The Ukrainian Ministry of Justice has announced that former President Leonid Kuchma is now under investigation for his possible involvement in the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze opposition. In 2000, the latter, who worked for the newspaper Pravda Oukraïnska, great destroyer of power and the oligarchy, had disappeared before his body was found decapitated.

The matter was compounded when a member of the opposition had released records where they heard a voice close to Kuchma's order that it "takes care" of Gongadze. "Kuchma is suspected of abuse of power, of passing illegal instructions to the direction of the Interior Ministry which led to the assassination of the journalist," said Attorney General Renat Kuzmin, whose remarks are taken Oukraïnska by Pravda.

Last September, the Justice also involved the interior minister at the time, Yuri Kravchenko, who had personally sponsored murder. Two officers of the Ministry of Interior are already behind bars for their involvement in the case. A third, former police general Oleksiy Pukach, is awaiting trial.

In December 2004, the Orange Revolution had just been to target the "Kuchma system", including the prime minister at the time, the current president Viktor Yanukovych, was the incarnation.
