  •  The quibble here... (5+ / 0-)

    Is that the Rada impeached Yanukovich under the protocols laid out in the 2004 version of the constitution, which it reinstated without the approval of Yanukovich, in violation of the 2010 version of the constitution. So legally, if you forgive the heinous way in which the constitution was reworked in 2010, the Rada would have needed Yanukovich's approval in order to change the law to allow them to impeach Yanukovich. Seems problematic, especially when Yanukovich is AWOL and refuses to recognize the Rada's legitimacy itself.
