When yet another acquaintance of mine asked me, for the fourth time this week, why I am not running for a seat in parliament, I had to stop and think. Is the career of a politician so attractive in the view of so many people that it is worth abandoning your profession (which you may happen to love), competence, previously acquired practical experience, an established mode of life and, finally, your circle of friends? (The milieu of which inevitably changes in the upper stratosphere.)

Finally, someone has uttered the sacramental words I have been waiting for so long. “This country needs censored democracy” a leading Ukrainian economist said in an interview. Below, I will explain what “censored democracy” is, but now I sadly admit: after a good laugh at sarcastic appeals for grandchildren to hide their grannies’ passports to keep them from voting in elections or posters of an old woman saying that her cat will inherit her house after she found out that her grandson voted for the Party of Regions, the public and some opinion leaders have begun to think that democracy, as it is, does not work in Ukraine.

In their struggle for power, Ukraine’s oligarchs formed a fraternity of common political interests, joining forces rather than promoting personal ambitions. Once the ultimate political goal was reached, their egoistic motivations became the priority.

In the minds of Ukraine’s leadership and entire political class sits a deep conviction that eastern and southern Ukraine does not understand or accept Ukrainian and that the language irks and outrages everyone there, meaning it is better to not even speak it in those regions.
