Leonid Kravchuk’s Career, What was his profession?

Leonid Kravchuk’s political philosophy was to avoid disputes and to state his stance clearly. He was known for being astute, diplomatic, and careful. He defined himself as a man who refuses to use an umbrella in the goal of “slipping between the raindrops.” (Inter (Ukraine), 2009, in an interview with Yulia Lytvynenko at Poza ochi) During the transition from Soviet domination to independence, such diplomacy helped Kravchuk maintain and consolidate his control over Ukraine.

Even though he didn’t belong to the governing Dnipropetrovsk group, he was third in command in Ukraine’s CPSU leadership before the Soviet Union fell apart. He avoided rigid opinions on democratic reforms and served as a bridge between party conservatives and reformists. Kravchuk joined the formidable commercial and political group known as Kyiv Holding or the Dynamo Group shortly after his defeat in 1994. The Social Democratic Party of Ukraine, led by oligarchs Viktor Medvedchuk and Hryhoriy Surkis, is formally organized (united).

Despite its nominal centrist/social-democratic slogans, the party is widely linked with big business, organized crime, corruption, and media bias against former President Kuchma.

Despite its nominal centrist/social-democratic slogans, the party is widely linked with big business, organized crime, corruption, and media bias against former President Kuchma. Surkis was barred from entering the United States in 2004 after being accused of meddling in the 2004 Ukrainian presidential election.

Anti-Western and Pro-Russia Stance

The group also took a strong anti-Western and pro-Russian stance. According to analysts, the group’s owned TV networks and other media have begun a vigorous anti-US/anti-NATO campaign. Despite his professed pro-democratic and patriotic stance, Kravchuk has been heavily chastised for staying one of the leaders of SDPU(o), specializing in negotiations and public relations.

Kravchuk aggressively supported Viktor Yanukovych’s presidential campaign in 2004 and was a part of Yanukovych’s team that negotiated with the opposition in the aftermath of the disputed election. He informed the media in November 2004 that he feared the following crisis would lead to the country’s breakup, intensifying calls for some parts of Ukraine to join other countries. In an interview with the newspaper Den on September 25, 2009, Kravchuk said that he had quit SDPU(o) and had returned to being unaffiliated.

He explained this by citing his former party’s decision to join the Bloc of Left and Center-Left Forces in order to compete for president in 2010. During the 2010 presidential election campaign, Kravchuk endorsed Yulia Tymoshenko. He accused incumbent President Viktor Yushchenko of being corrupt during the 2010 election campaign “Yanukovych’s aide was transformed.

He’s essentially become an afterthought. His mission is to smear Yulia Tymoshenko on a daily basis in order to prevent her from winning [the presidential elections] “, Kravchuk stated that he switched his support from Yanukovych to Tymoshenko because he believed Yanukovych had “turned his back” on all of the problems Kravchuk wanted him to address as president, including the Ukrainian language, culture, and the Holodomor. “Only the dead or the ignorant do not alter their minds,” he said in December 2009, adding that voting for Yanukovych in the second round of the 2010 elections would signal anti-Ukraine sentiment.
