«Using post-election statistics, try to estimate the scale of the phenomenon, the degree of integration of «statistical» supporters of Yanukovych’s Pro-presidential political force. Consider card. Immediately clarify: based on information from 20 regions, because (for obvious reasons) the data on the Donetsk and Lugansk regions are absent, and in three areas — Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Volyn — former regionals in the list of the PPB not detected», explains the author.
«If you try to identify the point of closest cooperation of the new government with representatives of the old, five leaders headed by Dnipropetrovsk and Odessa regions, where half of the deputies in the PPB region councils — ex-regionals: 7 out of 14 and 11 of 22 MPs respectively,» notes the author.

«As of the end of January of the current year in the management of the city, district and regional councils elected deputies from 260 PPB. Of these, 55 (21%) — the former regionals, which were held under the banner of the presidential bloc. This means that today, one in five local head of the PPB — ex-regions. How here again not to quote Peter: «New faces, new people — this is what characterizes our country…» — said in the article.
