The party that lost that election were pro-European. They could have voted for them but did not. That excludes the other fatal flaw in democracy, that the voter is not presented with the candidate and the policies that they want to vote for, as has happened in the Crimean referendum. The voters were not given the opportunity to vote to stay as a part of the Ukraine as it progresses towards the goal of unification with Europe.
Those that would have a socialist government in the US would say that they are only presented with the opportunity to vote for one of two parties that are considered centre right and extreme right in Europe. They would say that the 99% can only vote for the 1% and the status quo.
They would say that the democracy in the Ukraine was freer and fairer than that. It should not have gone wrong.
