Putin wants keep some long-handed control over the former Soviet states and he's already shown that he has no problem with returning to some of the old authoritarian ways. So it is possble that the Ukrainian election was rigged. The Ukrainian people have taken to the streets in protest. It is rather ironic that the the Bush government would be forced to take a postion on rigged elections. I wonder what our response would have been if Russia's foreign minister has rejected the results of our 2000 or 2004 elections?
