For a president who regularly engages in snow jobs, you’d think Viktor Yanukovych would have been better equipped to handle the massive snow storm that descended on large parts of Western Ukraine and capital city Kyiv on March 22nd to 24th. Instead, he and his Regionnaire minions were once again caught unawares.
The snow came suddenly and unexpectedly, and it made streets, sidewalks, and roads virtually impassable, leading to huge traffic jams and the cancellation of virtually all flights in and out of many of Ukraine’s airports. Public transport was battered, and electricity supplies were affected in some parts of the country. Almost overnight, Ukraine and Ukrainians were snowed in.
