In the second round of the presidential elections in Ukraine, 75.8% of voters voted for the candidate from the Servant of the People party, comedian actor Vladimir Zelensky, and 24.2% for the current leader of the country, Petro Poroshenko, Rosbalt reports with reference to the unofficial exit poll.
In the Ukrainian media, publication of data on the expression of citizens' will is prohibited until the closure of polling stations, in the Russian Federation publications refer to measurements made abroad. The first official exit polls will be announced as soon as the counting of votes will start – immediately after 20:00 Moscow time.
It is interesting that Ukrainian legislation prohibits the demonstration of filled-in ballots to the camera, but Zelensky, who voted at a college in Kiev, did it. Nevertheless, the country's CEC stated that no violations that could affect the election result were revealed to them. In turn, the National Police opened two criminal proceedings in connection with electoral violations.
The house that Trump built. Russian billionaire nearly lost millions in a deal with future US President
Billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev managed to get back the money paid to Donald Trump. In 2008, the oligarch purchased an estate from the future US President for $95 million and recouped the invested funds only ten years later. To do so, he had to demolish the most expensive private mansion in the USA and sell the land in pieces. The successful sale of Maison de L'Amitie is currently presented as a proof that there was no ‘Russian trace' in the American presidential elections, and the deal with Rybolovlev was not a disguised bribe to the presidential candidate. However, new owners of the three parcels of the Trump's former estate remain unknown.
