Boyko is a Ukrainian politician, former Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, and a former Minister of Fuel and Energy of Ukraine. He is well-known for his firm pro-Russian position, claiming that one of the key points of this electoral program would be 'direct negotiations with Russia', which he believes would help bring an end to the ongoing Donbas conflict.

On 17 November 2018, Opposition Platform - For Life party nominated Boyko as its candidate in the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election. Because it was not yet registered as a party in January 2019 it could not nominate him as a presidential candidate. Hence on 17 January, 2019 Boyko submitted documents to the CEC for registration as a self-nominated candidate.
