    "So both the presidential candidates of Ukraine have been in jail, which I think must be quite unique in the history of presidential elections in any country. They are very different kinds of felonies: one arrested for corrupt business practices and the other for attacking somebody. So one is a kind of working class felon and the other is a kind of middle-class business felon, you could say," he said.

    :yep: :yep: :yep: Sounds like a good start for democracy? No?

    I don't hear too much about these FACTS from the Western media.
