"Tonight in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come."
Party of Regions MP Vladyslav Lukyanov, speaking to RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service:
"America, having voted for Obama, chose stability and the way of evolutionary improvement. Romney, as we can see, conceded victory to his opponent. America understands that it needs strong government in order to solve its problems. Unfortunately, in Ukraine we witness a different situation. The peaceful end of the election campaign and the clear signals for the society is a positive example for Ukraine, in which direction it should move.
