Complicating the process further, leaders of the newly independent regions of Donetsk and Luhansk announced the formation of partnernership in an autonomous union Saturday. Live updates from are available from Mashable and Russia Today.
It was also reported that a series of cyberattacks specifically on the country’s election computer systems may force manual vote counts which will take longer to confirm. The troubling part which puts the information in a question is that part of the attack was said to have happened prior to February when former President Yanukovych was ousted from power during the Kiev protests.

Foreign ministry confirms border crossing
