We congratulate the Ukrainian people on the successful conduct of their Presidential elections on January 17. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), as well as the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), deemed them to have been “high quality,” showing “significant progress over previous elections.” This is an important demonstration of the development of democracy in Ukraine.
The United States looks forward to similarly successful conduct of the runoff election on February 7 and with working with whomever the Ukrainians choose as their President.
