Ukraine's parliamentary election was marked by an uneven playing field and biased media coverage that reversed many of the democratic gains the country had made earlier, international observers said Monday.
Political allies of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych appeared on track to retaining control over the country's parliament as polls closed Sunday, although opposition parties charged voting irregularities in an election seen as a test for the government's commitment to democracy.
Ukrainians will vote for a new parliament Sunday in an election overshadowed by political scandal, foreign intrigue and economic panic, as officials try to convince domestic and international critics that the balloting will be free and fair.
