Sen. Lugar off to Ukraine

From The Washington Times:

The White House Thursday called for fair elections in Ukraine and said it was sending the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee head as an observer.

"The United States supports Ukraine's aspirations to join the Euro-Atlantic community, a community which requires a commitment to shared values," spokesman Scott McClellan said. "If the election fails to meet democratic standards, Ukraine's aspirations would suffer."

No date was given for the departure of Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind.
