The European Union does not tire of making statements about support for Ukraine and its citizens. The European governors, like before (though less frequently than three months ago) are talking about their awe of Ukrainians, who are ready to stand for European values at the cost of their own lives.
Every significant European politician has states something about the unacceptability of Russian aggression against Ukraine and that “Russia has to pay the price,” the relations with it “cannot be the same as before,” and the Ukrainians “have to feel the support of Europe.”
No less frequent are statements regarding the necessity of regular contacts between citizens of Ukraine and the EU to retain stable support for the European vector.
However everything often works differently in practice.
The Central Electoral Committee has counted 100% of the protocols at the early presidential elections. The end result – 9 857 308 people, or 54.7% of all those who have participated in the elections, voted for member of the Parliament Petro Poroshenko. The inauguration – in the case of early elections the law only gives the newly-elected president five days to take the oath, – it appointed for June 7th.
On the eve of the elections Petro Poroshenko took up a number of obligations – taking into account the special status of the early elections, the high level of support of the candidate and the unstable situation in the country, their realisation will be observed especially closely.
Forbes remembered Petro Poroshenko’s main promises and asked experts to analyse how difficult it will be for the new President to keep his word.
