Current Ukraine's President and the candidate for 2019 presidential elections Petro Poroshenko claimed he was sure about “great results” of the elections. The President said it on the Munich security conference, as RBK-Ukraine reports.
‘I’m the President of a free and democratic country. We are not the Russian Federation. In Russia, you know for sure who is going to win the elections. Concerning our country, no one knows who is going to become the next president. However, I’m pretty sure that we are going to have “great results” of the presidential elections,” Poroshenko said.
The election campaign has officially started on December 31, 2018. Registration of the candidates was closed on February 4, 2019, and on February 9, the final list of presidential candidates is expected to appear. The candidates would be able to withdraw their candidacy until March 7, 2019.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's MIA head Arsen Avakov states political candidates fuel hatred among society. A few days ago pro-SBU (for which read, pro-Poroshenko) far-right organization C14, included in the American terrorist base, came with rubber-bullet handguns, knives, and Teren 4 pepper spray (carrying of which requires special permission) to Tymoshenko’s meeting, held in Kyiv downtown, allegedly to discuss with president candidate Yulia Tymoshenko “who killed Handziuk.”
Central Election Commission of Ukraine closed all polling stations in Russia, particularly, Moscow, Rostov-on-Don, Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk.
