The presidential elections in Ukraine will be held on March 31.

Crimea will re-enter Ukraine after the presidential elections, says Head of state Petro Poroshenko.

According to the politician, the peninsula will be turned free without any agreement. “Ukraine will never admit any bidding, nor any concealing arrangements,” he said in a conversation with the Segodnya portal.

Poroshenko stated that his promise would be fulfilled "as soon as possible, immediately after the presidential election."

“You have heard repeated statements by (Russian President Vladimir) Putin that this will not be done before the presidential election because he hopes that anyone except Poroshenko will be elected so that the new Ukrainian government drops to its knees and gives him Crimea. We will liberate the Crimea,” he stressed.

The presidential elections in Ukraine will be held on March 31.
