The main result of the presidential election in Ukraine - the citizens of the country will have to vote again, on April 21.

The preliminary results of the presidential elections in Ukraine turned out to be quite predictable. The growth of showman Vladimir Zelensky’s rating to 30% in the last days of March is reflected in the CEC data at 6:30 am on April 1 - the candidate from the Servant of the People party gets 30.2% of the votes after counting 36% of the ballots. In the second place is the current president Petro Poroshenko - 16.68%, in the third place the head of the Batkivshchyna party, Yulia Tymoshenko - 13.15% of the vote.

Since none of the candidates won more than 50% of the votes in the first round, which was also expected, the second round will take place on April 21. It is very possible to say that Zelensky and Poroshenko are entering it.
