Oligarch Ihor Kolomoysky, the business partner and assumed sponsor of Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky said he would support any political force in the next line-up of the Ukrainian Parliament - except European Solidarity ran by Petro Poroshenko.  

Ukrainska Pravda outlet reported that. 

'All but BPP (former Petro Poroshenko's Bloc, - 112 International)', he said, replying to the reporter's question. 

Kolomoysky added he would not be toppling Poroshenko's force.

'I don't need to topple them. Poroshenko just stepped down, and he's about to have a lot on his plate now, whatever amassed [against him] over the last five years. On the other hand, it's good, too (...) If he and his political force survive, it will be cleansed, and no one would be able to charge them with this by the next elections', Kolomoysky said.

Earlier this month, Petro Poroshenko left the office of the President of Ukraine, giving way to his succcessor Volodymyr Zelensky who won the presidential election.
