Ukrainian showman Volodymyr Zelensky stated on his decision to run for the office of president of Ukraine. He declared this during ‘Evening Quarter’ festive program on the 1+1 TV channel.
Volodymyr’s video announcement was broadcasted on the 1+1 channel, a few minutes prior to midnight, when the other TV channels were showing the speech of the President Petro Poroshenko. This is why Poroshenko’s New Year address on 1+1 was shown later.
According to Zelensky, every Ukrainian has three options: to live without paying attention to what is going on around, to move to another country in search of a better life, or act like him.
‘To give it a shot to change something in the country yourself. I have chosen precisely this way,’ the showman said.
The pre-election campaigning shall be allowed from the next day after a candidate’s registration and until 0:00, March 29, 2019.
The results of the elections shall be established up to April 10, 2019, inclusively.
