This is an unfortunate development:
With 75% of the votes counted, [Ukrainian] Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych had won 49% of the votes against Mr Yushchenko's 48%, the electoral commission said.
Just last night they were saying exit polls showed Yushchenko ahead by a wide margin. But who can trust exit polls these days.

Interesting because my roommate, who works for the Irish embassy in Prague, is in Ukraine right now acting as an election monitor. We'll see what she says.

By the way, I think we're rooting for Yushchenko, the man whose health recently took a turn for the worse after consuming "chemical substances not normally found in food products." Background here.
