At the same time, FRN is aware of numerous methods which Poroshenko may attempt to hold onto power in the last moments. There is presently at least one suit which calls into question Zelensky’s right to run in the elections, and if this suit moves forward, it could result in a constitutional crisis. Also recall that while today is the election, the new president would not take office until months later. This gives Poroshenko adequate time for any number of surprise incidents to take place.
Meanwhile, FRN is aware that Poroshenko has made numerous ‘exit’ plans to leave the country and avoid possible prosecution.
Numerous Ukrainian oligarchs, including both those that supported the Pravy Sektor, and those who played a ‘moderating’ role on the ‘radicalism’ of the Donbass rebels, are backing Zelensky as their puppet against the Poroshenko clique.
