Ukraine election

Teddy here, I've quickly put together a map showing the results of the Ukraine election. Remember that the ridings seen on the map are supplemented by Proportional Representation, and, that the results are still very early.

It appears when all is said and done that the President and the Anti-Yulia Liberals will each have in the area of 130 seats. The two parties are already rather close in ideology and should be able to put a stable government together. 

The Pro-Russian opposition has done well in the individual ridings, nearly sweeping the eastern portion of the country. This could pose troubles for Ukraine going forward as now a total of 5 provinces are either in open revolt or have voted for parties that tacitly support the rebellion.
