To: Leonid Kuchma, President of Ukraine
I am an American citizen and I am very concerned about the elections in Ukraine.
It is imperative that elections in Ukraine not be tainted by corrupt and falsely manipulated
election results. Ukraine has had so many martyrs in its past and gained independence
in the most fortunate of circumstances. Ukraine deserves scrupulous and honest
elections and nothing less.
All these courageous people demonstrating on the streets of Ukraine should have their
voices heard. Standing in the frigid temperatures their hearts are on fire for their
beloved country. Do not discount their pleas for history will judge you very badly, indeed,
if you disregard these remarkable people!
Democracy is very precious and Ukraine is worthy and should have a chance to shine
in its glow.
I implore you to give Democracy a chance in Ukraine and hold another election, properly
supervised, and without threats to the people should be held. I pray that you will act
expeditiously and with honor.
