Ukraine | Ukraine: Zelenskiy elected president as power shifts within the oligarchy

by Peter Mikhailenko

The disastrous presidency of Petro Poroshenko has resulted in him losing the presidential election to comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy, by 73 percent to 24 percent. The almost-50 percent margin of victory was the most-lopsided second round in Ukrainian history. The only Ukrainian province where Poroshenko won was the nationalist bastion of Lviv.

In the second round of Ukraine’s presidential election on Sunday, comedian Volodomyr Zelensky won a landslide victory over the incumbent president, Petro Poroshenko, who was brought to power in an imperialist-backed far-right coup in February 2014.

Ukraine | Que va-t-il arriver à Porochenko en cas de défaite?

Ce qui se passe en Ukraine atteint les sommets du grotesque sordide mais ce n’est à peine plus caricatural que ce qui se passe dans le reste du monde occidental et dans lequel nous sommes tous pris. Si on ajoute à cette sarcastique description le fait que ces gens-là ont été installés par la CIA et directement par Merkel et les Français déjà on mesure la proximité. Mais elle est encore plus importante si l’on sait que derrière le candidat pitre Zelensky (dont l’unique sens est : il faut virer le précédent), il y a Kolomoïski, le type le plus extraordinairement pourri qui se puisse imaginer (un juif qui a pour garde prétorienne des néo-nazis et dont le soutien en France est BHL) et le cocaïnomane dictateur pitre de Géorgie Mikhail Saakashvili. très lié au candidat du PS Rafaël Gluksmann. Ils entretiennent haine et mépris et ont besoin de l’extrême-droite pour faire régner la terreur. Tous ces gens-là donnent la nausée aux Ukrainiens et à ceux qui les connaissent. Mais nous avons en France ceux qui les maintiennent au pouvoir pour le malheur d’un peuple. Les démocraties occidentales semblent se vautrer dans une quelconque chute de l’empire romain. Quand 27 personnes possèdent la moitié de ce que possède l’humanité que peut-on attendre de ladite démocratie? (note de Danielle Bleitrach)
