The coalition which won the 'orange revolution' may still form the government http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_parliamentary_election,_2006 so it is possible to argue that he did not loose. Splintering of the 'pro-democracy' coalition is usual and healthy phenomenon in emerging democracies. Before victory, there are two fronts: all pro-democratic forces again incumbent communists. After victory, the pro-democratic factions start competing for power in free elections. Example of that was split of the OF into ODS (republican) and SCCD (democratic) parties after 1989 in the Czech Republic. http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/World-Leaders-2003/Czech-Republic-POLITICAL-BACKGROUND.html Discussion http://democracy-rising.blogspot.com/2006/03/ukraine-election-2006-analysis.html One should also consider the fact that prevalent US view: "Whatever the outcome, continued Western engagement with Ukraine will be vital" http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/25/AR2006032500935.html is not always accepted in other countries. The privatization which follows a transition to democracy leads to economical disruptions unemployment http://www.ukrnow.com/content/view/7878/27/ oil supply at world market rates sometimes civil wars and strife privatization of local industries, often at fire-sale prices to foreign capital and in robber barons style These are often blames on the first post-communistic government http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0108070.html " the statistical indicators at our disposal show a country and a people in the midst of a long period of chronic social and economic insecurity. There must surely be better times ahead." http://www.ilo.org/public/english/protection/ses/info/database/ukraine.htm
