GOP Making Inroads in Ukraine?

Thirty-seven are under criminal investigation. Forty-one await trial. All are candidates in Ukraine's March 26 parliamentary elections.

"If you steal a hen or sack of grain from your neighbor, you go to jail, but if you steal a million you end up in parliament."

Most of the investigations against the 37 candidates concern corruption and economic crimes, though exact details haven't been made public. Many of the 41 facing trial are charged with corruption.
