a really misleading article on Ukrainian elections

So far most of Western coverage of the presidential elections in Ukraine have been quite sympathetic to Yuschenko and critical of Kuchma and Yanukovych. So the fact that West is morally (not much else unfortunately) behind Yuschenko makes some on the left feel uneasy.
Hence, I think this article in the Spectator - Western aggression by John Laughland.

If you've read it and wanna know what's wrong with this article, let me know - I'll write a full review (otherwise why bother :-)).

P.S. It's not a coincidence of course that Laughland is apparently a big fan of Mr. Putin. In another article published in the SpectatorPutin the poodle he makes an astonishing claim:
Ever since Putin came to power on New Year?s Eve 1999, he has been the very opposite of a dictator or an imperialist.
