Gvosdev On Ukraine

FYI, in case you missed yesterday.

From “Our Ukraine” newsletter update:

SECRET TAPES COULD UNCOVER ELECTION FRAUD SCHEME

Kyiv, Ukraine – Viktor Yushchenko’s presidential campaign managers possess audio taped recordings of conversations held among top Ukrainian government officials and their aids documenting vote count manipulations, instigation of violence at polling stations, and falsification of election protocols. The tapes include conversations with central election commission leaders as well as top aids to President Leonid Kuchma. Personnel from Ukraine’s Security Service passed the secret tapes to Yushchenko campaign managers.

The audiotapes are similar to those released in September 2000, which unveiled that the murder of investigative reporter Georgi Gongadze was tied allegedly to Ukraine’s President Leonid Kuchma and other top government officials.

A partial transcript of the taped conversations can be found on the 24 November Internet site www.pravda.com.ua in both Russian and Ukrainian.
