UnitedUkraine was soundly defeated in the elections, finishing third with only 11.98 percent in the half of seats elected proportionately.
UnitedUkraine has never ruled out cooperation with the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU), as was demonstrated by the coalition of pro-presidential parties and the CPU against the Yushchenko government in April 2001.
The creation of a UnitedUkraine mega-faction is linked to the effort to have Volodymyr Lytvyn, the head of the presidential administration and UnitedUkraine, elected as Rada chairman followed by the installation of the disgraced former head of the Internal Affairs Ministry, Yurii Kravchenko, to replace him as head of the presidential administration.
Ukraine, republic in eastern Europe, bounded on the north by Belarus and Russia; on the east by Russia; on the south by the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov; on the southwest by Romania and Moldova; and on the west by Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland.
Ukraine includes the Crimean Autonomous Republic, which was elevated from an oblast to a constituent republic in 1991 (see Crimea).
The climate of Ukraine is temperate continental, with a subtropical Mediterranean climate prevalent on the southern portions of the Crimean Peninsula.
