The actor Zelenski outs Poroshenko from the Ukrainian Presidency

Kiev / The Ukrainian actor Vladimir Zelenski defeated the current leader of the country, Petro Poroshenko, with more than two thirds of the votes in the second round of the presidential elections.

According to the first official results, on Sunday, Zelenski would have achieved the biggest victory in the history of Ukraine since his independence from the Soviet Union.

Poroshenko, who came into power withMaidan revolution in 2014, would pay the price of the acute economic crisis and the entrenchment in the Donbas conflict.

Zelenski, a 41-year-old comedian with no political experience, promised that his “number one” priority will be the end of the war between the Ukrainian Army and the pro-Russian militias in the east of the country.

He also opted for a new format for peace negotiations which includes Russia and the Western countries.

Meanwhile, Poroshenko soon admitted his defeat, although then he admitted the victory of his rival will be celebrated in the Kremlin.

He also called on the international community to help Ukraine to maintain the course of integration in the EU and NATO.

“Please, stay by the side of Ukraine, whatever happens!”, insisted the outgoing president. (April 22, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
