The candidates for the presidency in Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelensky kneeled on the stage of NSC Olimpiyskyi. The imitator of this gesture was Zelensky, who was answering the question of Poroshenko concerning the fact that Zelensky as if kneeled before Putin in the past.
“Regarding kneeling. Those words are out of context. I said I was ready to kneel, but please do not kneel Ukraine. I am ready to kneel in front of every mother that lost her son, before every child that lost her father. I am inviting you, Petro Poroshenko to the same,” Zelensky said and knelt in front of people.
At the same time, Poroshenko knelt at one knee in front of the Ukrainian flag, but with his back to people.
Earlier, the candidates for the presidency of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelensky shook hands before the debates began. Before that, Petro Poroshenko unexpectedly violated the regulations and came to the scene of Zelensky at NSC Olimpiyskyi.
