Any Hope For Ukraine?

Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko has won the repeated presidential election in that country by a clear margin, according to election officials.

Let us now hope that this brings the whole charade in Ukraine over. Somehow, I am doubtful of that.

The situation they now have in Ukraine is less than promising. They may have a pro-western, democratically-elected leader, but if you were to look at a map showing how the votes have been cast, there is a straight split down the middle between those areas of the country which voted for Yushchenko, and those which supported the pro-Moscow candidate. In a country which has seen all this mess in its election; and in a country in which the other half of the population now feel duped; and in a country which is in danger of being torn apart in some post-Cold War fight between Russia and the West, the chances of political stability are slight at best.
