One Friday the Government voted to overturn constitutional reforms passed in 2004 and return important powers to President Viktor Yanukovych.
Additionally the President now commands a majority of loyal judges within the Constitutional Court who will ratify anything the administration wants.
Is this all to keep hold of the power? The opposition think so and claim they are being intimidated, harassed and excluded from the airwaves.
Supporters suggest it is what is needed to push through the reforms needed to get the country pointing in the right direction.
Time will tell.
