THE STAKES IN UKRAINE

As we go to press, Ukraine's post-election crisis shows no sign of
ending. Tens of thousands of demonstrators fill Kiev's streets, braving
sub-zero temperatures, and diplomats in several capitals work on plans
to avoid civil strife and an internationalization of the conflict that
is between the forces grouped around Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych,
the Russia-oriented winner of last month's presidential elections widely
condemned as fraudulent, and challenger Viktor Yushchenko, usually
characterized as pro-Western. On December 2, Russian President Vladimir
Putin "waded deep into Ukraine's electoral crisis," "The New York Times"
observed by "dismissing the challenger's demand for a repeat of the
disputed presidential runoff election and criticizing European efforts
to mediate." "A rerun of the second round may also produce nothing,"
Putin said in remarks broadcast on Russia's state television, which also
appears in Ukraine. "What happens then? Will there have to be a third, a
fourth, a 25th round until one of the sides obtains the necessary
result?" A few hours earlier, President Aleksander Kwasniewski of
Poland, who oversaw the effort on the previous night to mediate, backed
Yushchenko's call for a new runoff.
