Well, maybe it really IS victory.

Mr Yanukovich expressed fury with the result. "An orange plague has spread over the nation and lawlessness rules over the land," he said. "I will not be able to do my work."


If Yanukovich is upset, I guess I should be happy. Especially since in a vacuum, I tend to be in favor of decentralized power, and weak presidencies. Perhaps it slows down the pace of reform in the Ukraine in the short term, but over time, as the political scene changes, the wrong type of president won't be able to just roll back whatever reforms do take place with a wave of his hand.
