Comedian Zelenskiy would win second round of Ukraine vote, poll shows

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko staged a 'one-man' debate last Sunday after rival presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky refused an invitation to discuss the issues

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko staged a 'one-man' debate last Sunday after rival presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky refused an invitation to discuss the issues

The comparison with the survey conducted by the Rating Sociological Group a week ago shows growing support for Zelensky over the past few days, while the number of those who are ready to vote for Poroshenko has dropped slightly. Zelenskiy has been leading in the polls, and Ukrainian pundits are predicting a victory for him when the next round of voting takes place this Sunday, April 21.

The lead that Zelenskiy has enjoyed over Poroshenko in recent polls has been substantial.

Of those already decided on their choice, 72.2% said they would vote for Zelensky and 25.4% said they would support Poroshenko, with 2.4% saying they would spoil the ballot. The statistical error margin is 3.3%, the report says.

'No collusion, no obstruction' Trump declares victory as Mueller report published
The president's prediction, written down by an aide and contained in the 448 pages of the Mueller report, has not come to pass. Mueller concluded that there was no evidence of collusion by Trump , anyone on his campaign, or any USA citizen.

The video has been published on the Facebook page of the Zelensky team.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said a crowd of "up to 60,000" was expected to attend the debate, adding he would be discussing security matters with representatives of both candidates. The runoff election is scheduled for April 21.

The issue of how to deal with Russian Federation, which annexed Crimea in 2014 and backs separatists in eastern Ukraine, is prominent ahead of the vote, with Poroshenko casting himself as the commander in chief Ukraine needs to defend the country.
