US President shuns Yushchenko during UN meeting

Viktor Yushchenko was denied a meeting with newly elected President Obama.  Yushchenko hoped to meet with the President last week during Yushchenko's visit to the UN.  The shunning of Ukraine's President by the US is another sign of Yushchenko's diminishing influence on the international stage. The US administration clearly has written Yushchenko off as a bad investment and wants to remain at a distance knowing full well that he will not be in office in four months time.
