Ukraine's Exiled Ex-president Warns of Possible Vote Rigging

Ukraine's Exiled Ex-president Warns of Possible Vote Rigging

Wednesday, 06 February 2019 09:38 AM EST

MOSCOW (AP) — Ukraine's exiled former president, who was found guilty of fueling a deadly separatist conflict in the east, is warning of possible vote rigging in the country's upcoming presidential election.

Ukrainians will vote March 31 to elect a new president. Former President Viktor Yanukovych fled the country in February 2014 following months of anti-government protests. Russia used his appeal to send troops to Ukraine as a justification for annexing the Crimean peninsula.

Yanukovych spoke to the press Wednesday in Moscow, breaking more than a year of silence. He would not endorse any of the over 30 Ukrainian presidential candidates but accused President Petro Poroshenko of plotting vote rigging.

A Kiev court last month found Yanukovych guilty of treason and of helping Russia to annex Crimea.
