Results of 26Oct2014 elections in Ukraine  politics@infoukes.com, 03Nov2014; Will Zuzak
Prognosis on 26Oct2014 elections to Verkhovna Rada  politics@infoukes.com, 14Oct2014; Will Zuzak

- On 14Oct2014 -- the 72 anniversary of the creation of UPA -- the environment for the 26Oct2014 elections was much worse compared to the 26Mar2006 elections in which I was an election observer.
- Although the "democratic pro-European" parties won a majority in the 26Oct2014 elections, the Svoboda party did not pass the 5.0% barrier. "Without the participation of the Svoboda activists, especially Oleh Tyahnybok, and the Right Sector  in the Euromaidan demonstrations from 21Nov2013 to 22Feb2014, the dictatorial Yanukovych regime would still be entrenched in Kyiv today and Ukraine would be a fully controlled appendage of the Russian Federation."
