Changing the Game - II

Veronica Khokhlova has an item about a recent Radio Liherty interview with Mykola Melnychenko, the SBU major who was also Kuchma's bodyguard, and who first came to prominence in 2000 following the disappearance of Ukrainian journalist Georgiy Gongadze and the scandal of the Kuchma tapes. In the interview, Melnychenko casts doubt on the veracity of the recent New York Times report by C.J. Chivers, suggesting that it may have been the result of lobbying by Kuchma's people in the U.S.
