Great quotes - did we say that?

"The European Parliament... Is concerned about the rising nationalistic sentiment in Ukraine, expressed in support for the Svoboda Party, which, as a result, is one of the two new parties to enter the Verkhovna Rada; recalls that racist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic views go against the EU's fundamental values and principles and therefore appeals to pro-democratic parties in the Verkhovna Rada not to associate with, endorse or form coalitions with this party..."

That was then, this is now... Svoboda now has three members in Ukraine's interim cabinet - the Deputy PM (!), the Defense Minister (!), and the National Security & Defense Council Secretary.
