YANUKOVYCH, Viktor
Opportunity Ukraine

This is a practical guide for prospective investors!
This book is written for anyone eager to learn as much as possible about Ukraine, in order to believe in it: to believe in both Ukraine?s economic potential and its nationhood. OPPORTUNITY UKRAINE is not a memoir. It is a manifesto of deep belief in one?s motherland, a straight-from-the-heart declaration of a man with great responsibility for the present and the future of Ukraine, and its people. This book is a vision of the President of Ukraine on the existing situation and the urgent necessity for reform including issues of restoration of confidence in the state, European orientation, and new challenges and perspectives. Understandably, the book does not offer a miracle solution for Ukraine?s obstacles, but the author is honest and sincere with his readers in offering them deep insider analysis of the nation?s situation, and in offering his advice.

Two major chapters are dedicated to describing Ukraine as a unique place for investment and as a country of inexhaustible economic potential. This is a practical guide for prospective investors! Naturally, those who come to Ukraine first will reap the most benefits. Readers will be enticed by the author?s genuine and straightforward manner, his sharing of his dreams for his country, and his opposition to populism.

    Regionnaire Plagiarism Rears Its Head

    Who hasnt heard by now of the charges of plagiarism made against President Viktor Yanukovychs recently published English-language book, Opportunity Ukraine? The evidence is persuasive. Many sections were clearly lifted without attribution from other texts. And thats plagiarism, period.

    The presidents many critics have seized on the texts as evidenceif any were still necessaryof the regimes dishonesty. The presidents official defenders dismiss the charges as absurd. They have to, of course. What else can they say in the face of incontrovertible proof? In the final analysis, however, both sides arent quite getting the real point.

    It goes without saying that plagiarism is dastardly, dishonest, and demeaning and it must be condemned wherever and whenever it rears its ugly little head. But its also stupidprofoundly, deeply, screamingly, and unforgivably stupidespecially when committed by people with money, advice, knowhow, and clout who know, or should know, that every single word uttered by Yanukovych is always subjected to minute scrutiny by armies of critics in Ukraine and abroad.

    I mean, how dumb must the Regionnaires be to engage in open-faced plagiarism in an English-language book intended to be readnot in party headquarters in Donetskbut in the West? For chrissakes, mandont these guys get it at all? Dont they understand that the West abjures plagiarism and that the vast majority of Western scholars, journalists, and policymakers would never engage in it? Its a matter of professional honor. And besides, they know theyd get caught. And getting caught in the age of fancy Internet programs that compare millions of texts is a piece of cake.

    So how could the Regionnaires have done it?

    One possible explanation is that the Yanukovych people truly didnt know that what they were doing was plagiarism. Possible? Sure, but in that case these punks shouldnt be running a country. They should be shining shoes in Grand Central Station. You can forgive a regular guys ignorance of quantum mechanics, but for the policy honchos of a big country not to know the elementary rules of citation is unpardonable.

    Another explanation is that they knew what they were doing, but thought theyd get away with it. That is to say, the Regionnaires figured that the rest of the world is just one big Donbas and that their provincialism and arrogance wouldnt raise eyebrows in Paree and the Big Apple. Possible? Sure, but then these guys shouldnt even be shining shoes in Grand Central. Theyd better stick to the Donetsk train station until they learn the ways of the world.

    A final explanation is that the book was a collective enterprise and that too many cooks spoiled the broth. Pyotr didnt know what Pavlo was doing, both assumed Ivan would check for mistakes, while Ivan figured they wouldand none of them could read English anyway. Accordingly, the Yanukovych folks could plead sloppiness. Possible? Absolutely, but then theyd be well advised not to shine shoes even in Donetsk. I mean, if these guys cant get their act togetherwhich, of course, means that they had no leadership from the gentleman who put his name to the bookthen no one should trust their shoes to them anywhere.

    Whichever explanation you favor, the upshot is the same: the Regionnaires are clods. When they made jaw-dropping mistakes right after Yanukovych became president in early 2010, one could argue that, with time, theyd eventually learn. But if they still cant get something as simple as proper citation right, its clear that theyre incapable of learning.

    Thats not because theyre ignoramuses. If they were merely ignorant, thered be hope. No, the Regionnaires are know-it-allsbut not, alas, your run-of-the-mill breed. What makes their case hopeless is that these guys are aggressively ignorant know-it-alls. Fortunately, like all garrulous drunks with half-baked opinions about everything, theyll eventually fall under the table.
