The voters of Ukraine ultimately lost an opportunity to have transparent and democratic elections in the foreseeable future. Most of the recommendations of the ODIHR and the Venice Commission regarding changes to the electoral law in the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine disregarded. Instead of the required by European Union "quick steps" to upgrade the existing Ukrainian electoral system, the symbiosis of government and opposition performs something quite different – the highest possible inhibition of the reform and persistent attempts to "drag out" any progress.

The transition from the unipolar system to a multipolar one is generating tensions in two particular areas of the Eurasian landmass: the Mediterranean and Central Asia.
