Just a day after Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said
the Oct. 28 poll would help Ukraine seal a long-sought
association agreement with the European Union, Deputy Assistant
Secretary of State Thomas Melia said it could receive a “failed”
grade.

“Ukraine could find itself increasingly distant in all
directions rather than integrated in all directions,” Melia told
a conference in the Black Sea resort of Yalta attended by senior
Ukrainian officials including Prime Minister Mykola Azarov.

“The election is another important moment for national
choices, national decision-making and I think that unless or
until some significant steps are taken to improve things like
the election environment you are not going to be able to move as
closely as many of you want to Europe and the United States.”
