Adjusting «reform course»: «according to the plan» or calling retreat?


A year and a half have already passed since the start of Viktor Yanukovich reform.  The ambitious transformation plan has showed noticeable progress on many directions.  However, so far none, including the authorities’ representatives, can call the reformation efforts successful.  Properly outlined priorities and action plan stumbled on financial and political interests of various influential groups, what, naturally, stipulated for a large-scale ‘correction’ of the reform plan.  Apparently every plan needs to be updated with time. However, comparative analysis of the new reform action plan showed that ‘reformators’ have already skipped many initially positive initiatives.
