Sample text

More than likely, such 30 Indicators 31 examples illustrate that fraud can be shamelessly committed in Russia with no negative consequences for its perpetrators and no regard for Western opinion (or, with respect to Germany under the leadership of the likes of Gerhard Schro¨der, with the understanding that other political considerations such as who supplies whom with natural gas or who will appoint who to Gasprom’s board of directors following one’s career in elected office will lead officials to anoint any election as free and fair).

If one piece of evidence strongly hints at fraud but a second does not, then barring a strong argument to the contrary, we cannot reject the hypothesis that the election is legitimate. Since major criminal investigations rarely hinge on a solitary piece of evidence (despite what one might be led to believe by Hollywood’s portrayal of things), one piece of incriminating evidence, even if nothing contradicts it, should be accompanied by other evidentiary material. And whatever that evidence might be should be consistent with what we already know about a situation.

In Chapter 4 we turn our attention to Ukraine and its 2004 presidential vote. The specific question that concerns us is whether our indicators signal the massive fraud in the November vote alleged by nearly all objective observers, and whether those signals disappear in the conclusive December runoff. Chapter 5 then turns to Ukraine’s 2006 and 2007 parliamentary contests. One question here is whether in a parliamentary as against a presidential contest, our indicators confirm the general assessment that both elections were relatively fraud-free or whether various irregularities escaped notice either out of inattention or a simple desire to judge the contests as free and fair.
