The new president of Ukraine has been elected

After counting most of the votes in early presidential elections in Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, who is seeking integration with the West, has won with the result of about 53%. First time in the history, Ukrainian president is elected in the first round.

These were the first elections in two decades in independent Ukraine when the head of state is elected not in confrontation of the inhabitants of East Ukraine and West Ukraine. People all over Ukraine have elected their new president.

The new president will face a number of challenges – armed conflict in the south-east of the country, economic reforms, normalization of relations with Russia and many others. We want to wish good luck to Ukraine and its new president!
