"The main result of these elections is that
Yanukovich came first, but did not win. Tymoshenko, on the other hand,
lost but was not defeated," Ukrainska Pravda commentator Vadym Karasov
Tymoshenko broke her post-election silence yesterday, attacking Yanukovych's campaign promises at a cabinet meeting but not discussing her future plans. Since Tymoshenko clearly has no intention of stepping down voluntarily and Yanukovych likely doesn't have the votes to dismiss her government, Ukraine appears set for another crippling political standoff.
