Progress in the Ukraine
So 12 out of 29. That makes the percentage of government members implicated in, or otherwise related to, criminal cases, equal to 41%. This is much better than during the last tour of presidential elections, when the fraction of presidential candidates who had trouble with the law was 2 out of 2, or 100%.
"Another factor that Korrespondent exposed was that 12 out of 29 members of the Azarov government had been implicated in criminal cases or were witnesses to them. Nearly half the cabinet are former high ranking members of the Soviet Ukrainian nomenklatura or KGB. Among the 29 cabinet members, 13 were former KGB officers or had collaborated with the Soviet security departments (http://chykulay.livejournal.com/11787.html). The best known example is Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Sivkovych, who has responsibility for overseeing the security forces."
