Reed College Professor Helps Monitor Ukraine Election


Google

Reed College politic science professor Paul Gronke is one of over  1,000 observers keeping an eye on Ukraine’s presidential election on Sunday. The election will decide a successor to President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted in February. Since Yanukovych fled capital city of Kiev, the eastern states have been mired in violence and rebellion. That could pose a problem for the election in those parts of the country. This is the third time that Gronke will be an election watchdog in a foreign country. Previous trips took him to Kyrgyzstan and Albania.
