Voting "against all" is not an option: Vote for one or the other and provide a clear mandate.

Ukraine must make a choice between the best of two evils.

Voting against all serves no purpose.  A vote against all would only exacerbate Ukraine's problems and cause further instability and hardship.

The whole concept of the presidential system is seriously flawed, the direct election of Ukraine's head of state only serves to divided Ukraine not unite it.  Ukraine would be better off if it abandoned the presidential system and adopted a full European parliamentary system of governance.  But this is not the case now, like it or not Ukraine's next president will be elected on Sunday.

Voting "against all" is an option that Ukraine can not afford

It is in Ukraine's best interest that the person elected has a clear mandate.  Ukrainians must vote for one or the other. Tymoshenko or Yanukovych.  To do otherwise is putting at risk Ukraine's future and stability as an independent nation.
