Yushchenko Sworn In!

"Victor Yushchenko has taken an oath of the President of Ukraine at the Verkhovna Rada; he did it laying his hand on the 300-year-old Bible.

That happened after Volodymyr Lytvyn closed the parliamentary session on hearing that Yuriy Yukhnovskiy had suggested that Yushchenko take such an oath.

The assembled deputies greeted the new president. They sang Ukrainian National Anthem." -- Yushchenko's Web Site
