The complete failure of the current head of state at the presidential election is the answer of the Ukrainians to his policy of anti-Russian hysteria. That is how Viktor Medvedchuk, Chairman of the political council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, commented on the voting results in the second round of the presidential election.
“Poroshenko’s complete failure in the elections is the answer of Ukrainian citizens to his policy of anti-Russian hysteria and Russophobia elevated to the rank of state policy,” Medvedchuk wrote on Twitter.
“When I gave the interview for Financial Times, I definitely clearly answered the question that if Mr. Zelensky becomes a president and tries to establish peace and develop economy; I stated that if we see the real actions of Mr. Zelensky in peace issues and formation of economy, we will support such actions of Mr. Zelensky. I confirm it today. If such his actions, after his election as a president takes place, our party will support it, if it corresponds to the things, which are the program of our party that provides the peace plan on the settlement in Donbas and other issues of the changing of the situation in our state,” he said.
