Viktor Yanukovich (1950- ), the new President of the Ukraine. His victory was stolen from him by American neocon chicanery in 2004. It shall not happen again. For shame, teabaggers! Reflect on the fact that Yushchenko glorified Nazi collaborators… that tells you volumes about the Bushies, no?
Viktor Yanukovich won the presidential election in the Ukraine. The data so far is unofficial; they are the results of exit polls. The results of separate studies carried out by six individual companies do differ somewhat. However, it is clear that the leader of the Party of Regions is ahead of Prime Minister Yuliya Timoshenko in the second round by 3 to 6 per cent. At Timoshenko headquarters, this turn of events didn’t seem unexpected. Even a few hours before the vote, journalists noted a “sombre” mood amongst the Premier’s aides. Moreover, long before the polls closed, her political party sent complaints to the local electoral authorities and demanded a ballot recount. In turn, the Party of Regions declared that such actions are evidence of panic in their rival’s camp.
Anyway, we still await the official election results. After all, the gap between the finalists in the presidential race is small. In an interview with Voice of Russia World Service, Mikhail Pogrebinsky, the Director of the Kiev Centre for Political Studies, said, “We must bear in mind that these exit polls usually allow a margin of error, normally 2 to 3 per cent. It’s very probable that Yanukovich is the winner. I can only say that this was a vote against government in general, more than against the Orangies. The current economic problems and complex social situation led to this result”.
Yanukovich’s victory is obvious. However, the elections are not yet over. Even after the publication of official results, Ms Timoshenko did not accept defeat, according to Kirill Tanayev, the General Director of the Effective Policy Fund. He said, “His margin over Timoshenko is not very large, so, of course, she’ll organise a show, there’ll be a lot of noise, shouting, and an enormous amount of nuisance. I think that Yanukovich, his staff, and the Party of Regions need steady nerves and endurance. They will have some very difficult days and weeks, during which Timoshenko will try to contest the election results in court and so on. Was this a legitimate Yanukovich victory? In a certain sense, yes. After all, throughout the last five years, Yanukovich led all public opinion polls and his party has consistently won every election. Now, I think we can say openly and frankly that in 2004 Yanukovich’s victory was stolen from him. That year, Yanukovich won the second round. Only the illegal and unconstitutional manoeuvring of his opponents, supported by the United States and Europe, allowed a third round, and that was how Viktor Yushchenko gained power”.
This time, we hope that there is not a third round. Indeed, the Central Election Commission stated, on rather substantial grounds, that there was no good reason to declare the elections invalid or to review the results. What violations that were noticed were minor and were corrected on the spot. There are no claims of violations from international observers; they have already officially declared this to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
Meanwhile, at his headquarters, Mr Yanukovich revealed the first steps he will take as the new president. Amongst them, as noted, is a range of measures to stabilise relations with Russia. Aleksei Vlasov, the general director of the Centre for the Study of the Post-Soviet Space, said, “The viability of these steps depends on whether Mr Yanukovich will be able to obtain cooperation through his tactics and strategy. Let’s look at the situational need for strategy. To structure a stronger relationship between the Ukraine and Russia, he must use three main lines. Firstly, there is the humanitarian and educational context, secondly, there are economic concerns, and, thirdly, there must an end to the so-called ‘history wars’. We must create more favourable conditions for normal pragmatic cooperation, not only at the level of business structures, not only at the level of the political élites, but most importantly, at the level of our peoples”.
Of course, we shouldn’t neglect the need for tactical measures as well. Immediately after the election, the Party of Regions intends to begin negotiations on a new coalition in the Verkhovna Rada in order to avoid snap parliamentary elections. According to the leadership of the Party of Regions, this will both save national resources and soothe the voters’ nerves.

If it had not been for the CIA-orchestrated coup by the Orangies, Viktor Yanukovich would have taken office as President in 2004. The Ukraine would have been spared a great deal of what has occurred due to the incompetence, fecklessness, and improvidence of the Yushchenko junta. The American government, the chattering classes, and the multinationals (and their European lackeys (including the Vatican)) were all wrong in this case.
In an earlier post, I wrote the following:
Note the difference between the Christian and charitable treatment extended to France by the victorious Tsar Aleksandr Pavlovich with the nasty and evil treatment of Russia by the American neocons after the fall of the Soviet state. Quite interesting, wot?
In fact, most Americans are unaware of the main role played by Russia in the defeat of Napoleon. In 1945, President Truman shouted at Iosif Stalin, “You’re too far to the west in Berlin!” Iosif Vissarionovich merely shifted his pipe in his mouth and said, “Yes… in 1814, we were in Paris!” What is the genesis of this shocking ignorance? Firstly, Americans are all-too-often an insular and parochial people, ignoring things that do not or did not involve them. Secondly, it does not fit the “script” that the Anglo-American combination is the paragon of mankind, the only ones fit to impose their ideas on all others. Thirdly, many Anglo-Saxons shared many of the eugenic and racial ideas of the Nazis (see such practises as forced sterilisation of the “unfit” in some American states and the limitation of emigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe), so, the thought that Slavic untermenschtum were the saviours of Europe and Western civilisation was anathema to them.
In short, the period that is now drawing to a close, the era of the unbridled tantrums of the neocons, brings us an unpleasant lesson. Russia, when it was master of the situation, chose to be decent and Christian to its defeated foe. America, placed in an analogous situation, acted as a spoilt and petulant child, attempting to ram its adolescent notions down the throats of the entire world. Mind you, I am talking of “official” America, not for a moment do I believe that the American people truly supported such filthiness. God shall see and judge…
In short, quite a few of the present problems bedevilling the people of the Ukraine come with a label, “Made in Washington”. Many of the rest have a tag, “Made in Rome”. An alliance of American neocons, Galician Uniates, and schismatic Orthodox ran amuck in Kiev. Now, the people have spoken a clear and obvious “Nyet” to all of them. Shall things go peacefully? I hope so… but I shall observe that American (less than in the past, admittedly) and Uniate interference is not outside the realm of probability… I repeat, I hope that everything ends peacefully. Unfortunately, there are nasty and perfidious parties out there… we’ll have to see, won’t we?
