You're reading: Yanukovych wants to win at all costs

It
is clear now that Yanukovych can and may go much further to secure
his political future and the continual enrichment of his family and
his cronies.

His infamous loss in
the 2004 presidential bid and the regret that followed taught him
that a bad victory is better than a fair loss. International
observers found the 2004 presidential vote fixed in favor of
then-candidate Yanukovych, the nation’s prime minister at the time.
Viktor Yushchenko won a second vote that year, becoming president.

Since then,
Yanukovych and members of his team have long regretted not reaching
the presidency in 2004. They still keep saying that Yanukovych’s
victory was stolen from him.
