Na Ucrânia as últimas sondagens de opinião da semana, foram confirmadas domingo pela vitória na eleição presidencial do actor e cómico @volodymyrgroysman . Zelensky que antes do escrutínio beneficiava de mais de 60% das intenções de voto, venceu a eleição com 73% dos sufrágios. O seu rival e chefe de Estado cessante, Petro Poroshenko obteve 25% dos votos.
Poroshenko reconheceu a sua derrota e felicitou Zelensky pela sua vitória esmagadora. Ele reconheceu a clareza dos resultados da votação, mas declarou que a sua derrota não significa o fim da sua carreira política
Decepcionados com o mandato de Poroshenko, os ocidentais, sobretudo os europeus, acompanharam o escrutínio e contam sem dúvida com Zelensky para consolidar a aproximação com as capitais do oeste.
Todavia não conhecendo a verdadeira personalidade do Presidente-eleito, que afirmou que não vai ser um cómico na presidência, mas sim um Presidente da República, os ocidentais preferiram adoptar a prudência.
