UKRAINE / EU : Opposition Warns Yanukovych; Demands Yulia's Release; Election 'Marred BY Delays.'


     A re-energized opposition is threatening President Viktor Yanukovych with impeachment.
     They are also demanding the release of imprisoned ex-PM Yulia Tymoshenko...after reluctantly accepting the results of 28 October parliamentary elections...which kept Yanukovych's party in control.
    Meanwhile Yulia's hunger strike...begun before the election continues...with another trial over alleged tax evasion scheduled to resume.
    The EU has formally criticized the election...saying it was 'marred by delays and irregularities.'
