Ukraine Vote 'Concerns' U.S.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden voiced concerns about Ukraine's electoral process when speaking with the country's president, Viktor Yanukovych, on Tuesday, the White House said.

Yanukovych is facing an impeachment threat after the disputed Oct. 28 election.

"Noting the strong interest of the United States in enhancing its relationship with Ukraine, the vice president voiced concerns over Ukraine's recent parliamentary elections," according to the statement summarizing the call. "He also urged Ukraine to live up to its democratic commitments and end selective prosecutions."
