Provisional results - brief post

Looks like Poroshenko has won by a landslide.

The "fascist" candidates Oleh Tiahnybok and Dmytro Yarosh earned a combined total of 2.4% of the vote. Where now for Putin's "anti-fascist" propaganda campaign?

Somehow I doubt Putin will cheerfully accept the result. We'll see what his new rhetorical angle is in the coming days.

  1. True, and Vadim Rabinovich, the Jewish Ukrainian oligarch, beat Tyahnybok at the polls. One unpleasant surprise was that the thuggish Oleh Lyashko won 9% and came third.
