    Petro Poroshenko wins Ukraine's presidency in the first round, according to the results of two national exit polls, with approximately 56 percent of the vote.

    Boxer-turned-politician Vitali Klitschko on Saturday pulled out of the race for Ukraine's president, throwing his weight instead behind a billionaire businessman.....Klitschko's withdrawal from the presidential race would set up a battle between confectionary businessman Poroshenko and Ukraine's former prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, in the May 25 elections. After more than two years in prison, Tymoshenko was released in February following Yanukovych's ouster, her archrival.

    By Gene J. Koprowski Published 12/27/2004 11:41 AM CHICAGO, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- The court-ordered election rematch in Ukraine this past Sunday, featuring opposition presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, probably would not have happened were it not for mobile phone technologies.The technologies -- text messaging services in particular -- enabled hundreds of thousands of youthful demonstrators to coordinate their activities and take to the streets of Kiev to contest the November election results, experts told UPI's Wireless World."The most significant aspect of this thing is the mobilization of the population," said Lubomyr Hajda, associate director of...

    Doctors at the Austrian clinic that treated Ukraine’s opposition leader confirm there was a plot to kill him MEDICAL experts have confirmed that Viktor Yushchenko, Ukraine’s opposition leader, was poisoned in an attempt on his life during election campaigning, the doctor who supervised his treatment at an Austrian clinic said yesterday. Doctors at Vienna’s exclusive Rudolfinerhaus clinic are within days of identifying the substance that left Mr Yushchenko’s face disfigured with cysts and lesions, Nikolai Korpan told The Times in a telephone interview. Specialists in Britain, the United States and France had helped to establish that it was a biological...
  • Ukrainian Vote Forgery Document

    How and Why the Elections were Stolen, part IV A A friend who's a Reuter's journalist in Eastern Europe forwarded this photo to me. It shows a vote tally sheet from the Ukrainian elections. For those of you who don't read Cyrillic, Yanukovych received 2,139 votes, no one else received any. I think Kim Jong Il's opponent gets more votes than that. I had to shrink it for my blog so it's a bit blurred at the top, but am happy to email the full-size copy to anyone who emails a request. Posted by Discoshaman at 02:54 AM | Comments...
