Candidate for Ukrainian president and Regions Party leader Victor Yanukovych has said he is sure that Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko will attempt to influence the results of the upcoming presidential election.

Candidate for Ukrainian president and Regions Party leader Victor Yanukovych has said he is sure that Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko will attempt to influence the results of the upcoming presidential election. "Tymoshenko only has one option [rigging the election results], because she feels that she'll lose [the election] and that the overwhelming majority of Ukrainians don't trust her and her government," he told reporters in Ivano-Frankivsk on Thursday.

Yanukovych said that Tymoshenko's team would search for new schemes during the election campaign in order to improve the results of the January 17, 2010 election. He also said that "they will fail to do that."

Exactly! He should rot in jail and should not be able to run in this election since he tried to steal the 2004 election.

Yanukovych is set to win the presidential election and we can thank Yushchenko for this. Yushchenko's term of office has been a complete disaster any positives have been out weighed by the negatives 10 to 1. Yushchenko betrayed Ukraine and the hopes and dreams of all those who supported him.

we can all be safe and secure knowing that Yulia will be watching Yanukovych to ensure he will not rig the election and Yanukovych will be watching Yulia. BUT who is watching Yushchenko. Then fact that Ukraine now has a registered voters list will ensure that the administration of the election is much more open and transparent. With each side watching each other it is unlikely that there will be mass falsification of election results. The system that is in place is much better then that back in 2004

Just watch, my friends, as Ukraine will flourish in the coming Yanukovich administration. A reset back to successful multi-vector foreign policy is just what Ukraine needs to get back on track.
