The ONLY democratically elected President of Ukraine - mr Yanukovych should follow the Russia example and install webcams in every voting place.

Afterwards the west-paid orange retards will get their stinken traps shut by the wide public access to the video data which proves how powerless the orange shit for brains actually are, heh, heh, heh :D

Putin completely destroyed the western propaganda drive to discredit the Presidential elections in Russia by using webcams, so the western idiots had to confess that he indeed win the popular vote..
