Directors at four children’s homes in the Ukrainian city of Odessa refused to accept oranges from benefactors as New Year gifts for the children. Orange has become the symbol of the Ukrainian opposition led by presidential contender Viktor Yushchenko.

The Odessa union of businessmen purchased 200 kilograms of oranges for the children’s homes but the household managers refused to take them referring to instructions from their bosses, ITAR-TASS news agency reported.

A director at a home for deaf and dumb children was quoted by the agency as expressing surprise at the businessmen for choosing oranges and not sweets, which they had presented to the children in previous years.
