That map is very interesting, Taras. Excuse the naive question, but what explains Yano's appeal in Zakarpatska Oblast?
Zakarpattya is a special region, with lots of Kuchma-era assets: Shufrych, Rizak, Ratushnyak, et al.Zakarpattya brings together several minorities: Rusyns, Hungarians, Romanians, Gypsies and Slovaks. Some rayons (counties) don’t have Ukrainian schools and people don’t speak Ukrainian. Overall, they have a modest separatist/irredentist sentiment there, fueled by the Kremlin and Yanukovych’s decentralization platform. Coupled with the Oranges’ failure and fragmentation, all of the above has resulted in Yanukovych gaining a slight lead over Tymoshenko there. In 2004, Zakarpattya went for Yushchenko, as opposed to Yanukovych:1st round: 43.61% vs. 37.75% 2nd round: 55.00% vs. 40.07%Rerun: 67.45% vs. 27.58%
