Following the presidential election last Sunday and the report of the OSCE/ODIHR observers that the elections met most OSCE and Council of Europe commitments, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has congratulated Viktor Yanukovych on his victory.  Gordon Brown said:

"I congratulate Mr Yanukovych on his victory in Ukraine's Presidential election.

The election was a vigorous display of democracy.  International observers have said it was free and fair.

The UK has long supported Ukraine's EU aspirations and we will continue to do so.  A broader EU is a stronger EU, and will make for a stronger, and more prosperous Britain."
