Q Mr. President, what are the consequences if Ukraine does not comply with international pressure and demands on the elections? And do you think that President Putin overstepped his bounds?
THE PRESIDENT: There's just a lot of allegations of vote fraud that placed their election -- the validity of their elections in doubt. The international community is watching very carefully. People are paying very close attention to this, and hopefully it will be resolved in a way that brings credit and confidence to the Ukrainian government.
Если Пауэлл говорил, что "we cannot accept this result as legitimate", то Буш - только "the validity of their elections in doubt". Характерно, что часть вопроса, которая про Путина, проигнорирована. Хотя, конечно, глубокий смысл во всем этом искать не стоит.
