Yanukovych: No More Snap Elections in Ukraine If We Win

"Я думаю, що дострокових виборів в Україні вже не буде... Упевнений, що ми переможемо на цих виборах".

I believe that snap elections
in Ukraine will no longer be held. I am confident that we will win this election.
This soundbite was extracted at the polling station where the Yanukovychs cast their ballots.

That is NOT his wife whom he is kissing! (And btw isn't that a politician no-no? Did no one learn from Clinton/Lewinsky?) Sigh.

Though it is a change from the photos of folks kissing Yanukovych's hand.

Yeah, there is no do-over for elections as law prohibits it.

Me bad!

That is Yanukovych's wife which he is smooching in the photo - but not from day of elections, which is what threw me. Mea culpa. Take it all back.

Hey - I was NOT the only one! She has been quite 'absent' from public view it seems ever since her infected orange speech.

"During voting Mr. Yanukovych was together with his wife. After she went out from polling booth, one photographer who did not recognized her, yelled “Lady, step aside! You impede to photograph.”

Touché, Elmer! The flowers made it look like another premature congratulation:)!

Luida, that's the scene of the day, and food for thought, too. Some reporter mistook her for a non-VIP and yelled at her. That's the treatment you get when you're perceived as "one of us."

Well, it's either premature congratulations or a funeral.

Either way, I find it rather odd that one would bring flowers to vote.

Maybe there's some ballots for stuffing the ballot box in the flowers.
