NATO loses in the Ukraine election
Then the election happened.
This headline is a smear by warmongers. Volodymyr Zelensky isn't pro-Russia.
However, he isn't anti-Russia, which is a huge change from President Petro O. Poroshenko, who came in a distant second.
Turnout was estimated at about 63 percent, slightly more than the 60 percent who voted in 2014.
That's not all.
A better-than-expected showing for Russia-leaning candidates in the first round of Ukraine’s presidential election could mean forces loyal to the Kremlin make inroads at the country’s parliamentary vote later this year.
While two pro-Western candidates will go head to head in a runoff in three weeks, Russia-friendly Yuriy Boyko and Oleksandr Vilkul garnered a combined 15 percent.
This is also a smear, Boyko and Vilkul aren't "loyal to the Kremlin", but they are pro-Russian.
Between Boyko and Vilkul's votes, plus Zelensky's votes, it virtually assures that Ukraine won't have an anti-Russian President in a few months.
