Lol. There have been no liberal parties in government and paliament so there are no liberal lies in Ukraine. In the ex-USSR all the mainstream parties' declared programs are pure socialism in spite of the fact that these parties are owned by oligarchs and top bureaucrats just like Communist party of the USSR was fully contolled by several people
In Ukraine, Belarus, the RF etc. plenty of elderly and average age people are electoral zombies who do what they did in the USSR repeatedly and traditionally vote for Soviet bureacratic clans that promise the advent of full communism or some kind of "paradise". And these zombies have never tried to call to question those in power for failing to keep promises.
That's the Homo Sovieticus mentality, behaviour, attitudes that should be overcome if any of these countries want some progress.
