It surprises me how a country such as Ukraine can again vote for a man like Yanukovych after he fraudulently rigged the last election. Ukraine will not go forward at all until the corruption ends. Corruption in government, the POLICE DEPARTMENT is causing Ukraine to remain a troubled country.

Ukranian people just want closer relations to Russia, instead of political aspirations of the few elite to get into NATO/EU.

The new Presidents first priority is eliminating all the corruption and everyone associated with it. There are too many criminals worried about filling their pockets with Hryvni. I think this must include Yanukovych also for his criminal activity in the 2004 election. If Yanukovych has strong ties with Russia well maybe he should move there. Ukrainian people need a strong, educated leader who will focus on all of Ukraine and not just those interested in Russian relations or filling his own pocket or the pockets of his friends with money. Come on people of Ukraine, don't vote for a criminal! Vote for a strong, Educated leader who will take care of all your people and your entire country! Слава Україні! Привіт з Канади.

Fact is there are no strong political candidates. Timoschenko is just as much of a criminal as Yanukovich is. Unfortunately for the people of Ukraine this means another decade or so of political instability.
