Viktor the beekeeper

Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko who is claiming that the recent elections were rigged is a beekeeper. Not many people know that.

He says on his website:
It’s true that the bees’ world is a unique community. My father, my grandfather and great-grandfather took up the beekeeping. My brother and I have since the early childhood joined to this striking occupation.

Bees’ community is functioning perfectly: all the duties are sharply defined. Some bees stand guard over their hive, some of them bring the honey and others feed their babies. Bee-garden is a big well-organized family, a single whole. You see, all of them perish but feed their queen till the last day. That’s the struggle for the sake of posterity…
UPDATE (30 minutes later): Viktor the beekeeper has succeeded in obtaining an election re-run on 26 December 2004.
