Found those maps 

I found the map I was looking for. I actually wanted two, so here you have them.

Source. Look at how the voter turnout went up so much in eastern Ukraine, and remember that in second round elections some people lost their preferred candidate (about 20% of the public.) Turnout in the eastern provinces ran about 55% in the first round. Here's the division of votes in the second round.

Source. I'm sorry it isn't red and blue (orange and blue would be better, of course.) Colorized by Steve, thanks so much! Putting those two pictures together give you a pretty good feel for how one might think the vote was stacked. It probably would help you to see also the density of these areas so you know how many votes are in each state. Can't find a map, but here's a chart.
