KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Full preliminary results show TV comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy won Ukraine’s presidential election with 73% of the vote.

The Ukrainian Central Election Commission on Tuesday published the full and final count of votes in Sunday’s election which also showed incumbent Petro Poroshenko with only 24%.

Zelenskiy, 41, is a political novice who is promising to build a “new country,” free of graft and the old, corrupt political establishment.

Zelenskiy’s campaign was extremely vague, leaving pundits wondering how he is going to tackle thorny issues like the separatist movement in eastern Ukraine and relations with Russia which annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula in 2014.

  1. Where is Geoffrey Pyatt and Victoria Nuland… the darling of these Regime change coordinators ..has been removed from the Ukraine by a massive landslide of votes ..for a “Comedian”!

    The last elected president of the Ukraine was removed by the efforts of PYatt and Nuland and the state department of the United States..so unless this comedian demonstrates like Tsipras in Greece..that he will comply with the U.S fascist regime , like Porshenko,…i am sure arrangement by the Empire will be made to declare him incompetent, or do like they are doing in Venezuela..call his election illegal and illegitimate, and starve the people of Venezuela with economic warfare..to make them remove their elected leader and replace him with another chosen by Victoria Nuland , Robert Menendez and Marco Rubio ..like Pochenko!

    And do you still think America is not fascist white supremacist on the march to taking over the independent countries of the world .. and protecting us against communist , Terrorists, or Fascist dictators?
