Ukraine on brink of new era

Yanukovych is on course to win the final round of Ukraine's presidential elections.

    Ukraine may be on the brink of a new political era as polls suggest Victor Yanukovich, the pro-Russian opposition leader, will be the country's next president.

    Private surveys already predict a victory for Yanukovich, who is competing agains Yulia Tymoshenko, the current prime minister.

    Voting on Sunday follows a brutal campaign and has prompted concern from analysts that the losing candidate will not concede defeat but instead turn to the courts or street protests - similar to those which followed the disputed 2004 elections in which Yanukovych was also a contender.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
