With 98.36 percent of the votes from Sunday's election counted, Mr. Yushchenko was leading Prime Minister Viktor F. Yanukovich by 52.29 percent to 43.92 percent, according to election officials.
A final count is expected to be issued later today, the Central Election Commission said.Under his leadership, Ukraine will move toward the EU, and away from Russia. Also, Ukraine will remain a divided nation to a degree that makes our red state-blue state conflict seem utterly trivial. Some of the Russian speaking, eastern provinces will probably seek autonomy or even secession.
