Ukraine's Elections Nothing but PR with Gloomy Outlook

This is from "Ukraine's Elections Nothing but PR with Gloomy Outlook" (RIA Novosti):

MOSCOW, May 26 (RIA Novosti), Nastassia Astrasheuskaya - As the early Ukrainian presidential elections conclude the future looks even gloomier for Ukraine than its present or past, says American political scientist Francis Boyle. 
 “These elections are only for international show and public relations purposes. It’s not really serious. They are designed to give a fig leaf of legitimacy to the neo-Nazi junta in Kiev. Regretfully, I am afraid these elections will make things worse,” Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, told RIA Novosti on Sunday. 
 Ukraine has been plagued by deadly protests for more than six months. Tensions moved from Kiev eastward, after the ousting of the former president Viktor Yanukovych on February 22.
