The President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, at the last press conference was assisted by a Teleprompter. This was reported  by the website ‘’

For the entire 90 minutes of communication of the Head of State with Independent journalists, there was a special device in a hall reassuring the main speaker. The organizers of the event saved on the backdrop for the press conference. The same backdrop used in 2015 was reused again. As a reminder, on January 14, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko gave the first-of-2016 press conference. It was devoted to the results of the last year and was held in Mystetskyi Arsenal.

Surprises: Poroshenko’s performance failed to match the miraculous promises. The main thesis – “Thank God I’m alive”. The main achievement of the past year was the fact that the country succumbed to military, political and economic challenges

The leading Russian media outlets were not allowed to the press conference.
