38. Well let's compare the two elections
The first had almost 100% turnout in some very pro-Yanukovych regions. Actually above 100% in some. In some cases this almost was double the turnout of the first round. Ukraine's own Supreme Court analyzed this and determined the election was fraudulent. Hmmmm....

The second election under much more international supervision, saw the turnout in this odd Yanukovych regions go down to normal levels, about the same as in the first round, while the Yuschenko ones remained the same.

If you want to argue that the first election was not stolen and the second one was, you're basically arguing against what every international observer and Ukraine's own Supreme Court and Electoral Commission.
