Don't you like the Bloomberg headline?

The Bloomberg headline from google news:

'Ukraine Must Probe Presidential Election Fraud, U.S. Govt Says'

Just take out a few key words from the article, however:

The U.S. government said ** must investigate charges of fraud in the Nov. 21 run-off presidential election that prompted more than half a million people to take to the streets to protest preliminary results.

``These charges need to be thoroughly investigated and cleared up before the international community can have confidence that the results of the ** elections reflect the will of the people,'' U.S. State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said yesterday, according to an e-mailed transcript.

...

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said polling didn't meet international standards and U.S. Senator Richard Lugar, monitoring the vote in the capital, *, said the government helped rig the election.

...

``We call on the ** authorities to curb additional abuse and fraud, to uphold its international commitments to democracy and human rights, and to act to ensure an outcome that reflects the will of the ** people,'' Ereli said, according to the transcript. ``Should, in the final analysis, this election prove to be fundamentally flawed and tarnished, we would certainly need to review our relations with the ***.''

Which country are we talking about, again?"
