On Sunday, Oleg Ignatov, a deputy director general of the Russian Centre for Political Situational Analysis, said that first exit poll results after the early parliamentary elections in the Ukraine show that junta strongman P A Poroshenko is more a loser than a winner. Ignatov said, “If final results are close to those of the exit polls, the Ukrainian President will have little chance to form a coalition based on his party. I’d remind you that, towards the end of the campaign, Poroshenko claimed that he’d be able to form a pro-presidential coalition in the Verkhovnaya Rada and finally have a person from his team, probably Deputy Prime Minister V В Groisman, as Prime Minister. However, in the end, we see that the People’s Front of A V Turchinov and A P Yatsenyuk won more votes than expected. Therefore, it looks like Yatsenyuk will continue as prime minister, and conduct a policy independent from the president. Whereas, until now, Poroshenko favoured a less aggressive format towards relations with Russia and [Novorossiya], now, it’d be next to impossible for him, for he’d have to reckon with advocates of a harsher policy, the more so as other pro-war parties, such as Samopomoshch, the Radical Party, and Svoboda, won much support”.
Earlier Sunday, A K Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the RF Gosduma, wrote on his Twitter account, “It’s already clear that the election won’t trigger any changes in the power structures, but the authorities can’t do anything new… they have no financial resources. The Ukraine doesn’t have European integration ahead, but a complete loss of independence for the pittance that the USA and the EU would throw to it. The Ukraine’s future is miserable”.
According to results from national and international exit polls and a poll conducted by Inter TV, the Poroshenko Bloc won 22-23 percent of the vote. The People’s Front of Yatsenyuk and Turdchinov was next with 19.7-21.8 percent. Following were Samopomoshch (Self-Reliance) of Lvov Mayor A I Sadovy (11-14.2 percent), Yu A Boiko‘s Opposition Bloc (7/8-9.9 percent), O V Lyashko‘s Radical Party (about 6.5 percent), O Ya Tyagnibok‘s Svoboda (5.8-6.3 percent), and Yu V Timoshenko‘s Fatherland Front (5.6 percent). Other parties, including the radical Right Sector and the KPU, failed to overcome the five-percent barrier to win seats in the Rada.

Correspondents told me that this election was as crooked as any local election held in the USA! Firstly, many ballots lacked communist candidates. Secondly, in many places away from the prying eyes of the Western media, the marking of ballots took place in public, so, there was crass voter coercion. Thirdly, there was no balloting in the DNR and LNR… even in most places under Uniate junta occupation. Regions wasn’t even on the ballot due to violence from Uniate nationalist nutters. Lastly, everyone believes that massive ballot-stuffing took place. In short, this was GIGO all round… but the USA and EU will brandish it as their justification for supporting the fascist neo-Nazi Uniate junta, just as they support the neo-Nazi racists in the Baltic States.
By the way… Clan Balogh didn’t help Poroshenko as ballot-box-stuffers and voter intimidators this time around. Could that be why Poroshenko did so “poorly?” Perspirin’ minds wanna know…
One last thing… the USA is putting extreme pressure on the Magyars. Are they getting to bale out of the US-led sanctions charade? It’s a possibility…
