Lightbulb Viktor

Andriyovych Yushchenko born February 23, 1954) is a former President of Ukraine. He took office on January 23, 2005, following a period of popular unrest known as the Orange Revolution. He failed to secure a runoff spot during the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election...The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for the runoff election to be repeated because of widespread election fraud in favour of Viktor Yanukovych in the original vote. Yushchenko won in the revote (52% to 44%).
President Viktor Yuschenko is still asking Russia to turn over some people who he believes have key information to his alleged poisoning five years ago, but there's still a debate as to whether Yuschenko was even poisoned in the first place. New information shows that Yuschenko's officers may have sent his blood samples to the United States to enrich it with dioxin in an attempt to help him win his election.
Public protests prompted by the electoral fraud played a major role in that presidential election and led to Ukraine's Orange Revolution...Following an assassination attempt in late 2004 during his election campaign, Yushchenko was confirmed to have ingested hazardous amounts of TCDD, the most potent dioxin and a contaminant in Agent Orange. He suffered disfigurement as a result of the poisoning, but has been slowly recovering in recent years...
