BREAKING: Zelensky Resoundingly Defeats Poroshenko in Presidential Election, with 74%

KIEV – A crushing defeat for Poroshenko has just been dealt by Vladimir Zelensky in today’s presidential election. Zelensky is a popular actor who played the role of president in a popular Ukrainian television show.
The network itself is owned by Jewish-Ukrainian oligarch, Kolomoisky, and so this much of the equation is already understood. Segments of Ukraine’s oligarchy are displeased with the general lack of progress made in the aims to reap financial rewards from the EU, the openly stated disinterest of the EU to integrate Ukraine, and the U.S reluctance to incorporate Ukraine into NATO – a ‘red line’ for Russia which Trump, to date, has appeared to respect. 
Moreover, Zelensky was also supported by the oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, whom vacillated between supporting DPR militias as well.  Rinat Akhmetov was known for playing both sides during the Donbass conflict. Initially on the side of the pro NATO oligarchs, he established a neutral role and worked towards ‘moderating’ the socialist and communist elements of the Donbass rebels. Many fighters and citizens alike believe that Rinat Akhmetov  was chiefly responsible for any number of betrayals during the Donbass socialist revolution several years ago.


The conflict between the separatist east and the Ukrainian state backed by the U.S, continues to this day.
