January 26th, 2014 By Pedro FernandezVITALI KLITSCHKO IN DANGER
San Francisco, CA- Ukraine is where the Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir were born. Wlad fought for his homeland in the 1996 Olympics. Right now there is a virtual civil war going on in the country as the capital city Kiev has been Ground Zero for demonstrations involving hundreds of thousands of anti-government protesters.
KLITSCHKO DID THE UNTHINKABLE!
Earlier this week while buzzing the news channels, they played video of the demonstrations and I was absolutely stunned as Vitali Klitschko, 42, ex-world heavyweight champion, stood between over 200,000 Ukrainians and the Police. In the midst of this heroic stand to keep his people from being beaten (or worse), there was Vitali getting sprayed in the face by the people he is trying to aid with a huge amount of Fire Extinguisher powder this week.
TRIED TO KILL PRIOR LEADER
Not giving up any ground, Vitali quelled the almost riot and apparently nobody was killed and or seriously injured. The elder Klitschko wants to run for President against incumbent Viktor Yanukovych who defeated Viktor Yushchenko in 2010. Yushchenko, pictured here was poisoned and almost died because of his desire to be the Ukrainian leader.
PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE FEELING THE KLITSCHKO HEAT!
Viktor Yanukovych announced this week that he will make concessions to the opposing party who went “off” when Russian leader Vladimir Putin nixed Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union, which would have greatly benefited the people, so says Vitali. The jobs being bantered about have not really been discussed, but the President is under so much national and international heat that he says he will select a Prime Minister from Vitali’s party.
SO CAN VITALI RUN FOR PRESIDENT OR NOT?
I guess that is still the $1,000,000 Euro question. Will Vitali Klitschko be allowed to run for President against Yanukovych. That we still don’t know. But after watching Vitali hold back 200,000 people all by himself, this to me proves that he is bigger than life and given the opportunity and a clean election (remember Florida in 2000?), Vitali Klitschko may very well be the next President of Ukraine.
THE REALITY OF A DANGEROUS SITUATION
The negative side of the coin is that he could end up like Viktor Yushchenko, poisoned or worse, dead. We wish the best for the people of Ukraine and the great man that is Vitali Klitschko. For he will either win big or lose big, and I’m not talking votes, there are no draws in the deadly game that is Ukrainian politics.
