Outgoing President Loenid Kuchma has said negotations will take place among the parties concerning the election outcome. I was glad to see this AP report:
"The startling development in the three-day standoff came as the Bush administration urged the Ukrainian government not to certify results of Sunday's runoff election results that showed Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, backed by Kuchma, defeating the Western-leaning Viktor Yushchenko.
The United States stepped in the promote democracy which will protect our credibility and hopefully build goodwill among the Ukrainians looking for fairness and accountability in electing their own government. Let us hope that the current government has gotten the message.
