Ukraine: Klitschko in the ring for presidency, for now

Vitali Klitschko agitated against the Ukrainian Parliament on Friday in Kiev for passing a law that will potentially block him from being elected president, if he wins at the polls. The law amending tax legislation doesn’t allow those who spend a substantial time abroad to run for the Ukrainian presidency. This will affect reigning WBC heavyweight champion, Vitali Klitschko, who is the leader of the opposition in his homeland and running for president in 2015.

Klitschko was wearing a pro-European Union campaign shirt Friday, which re-enforces his desire to integrate Ukraine into the EU.
