US & Europe react to Poroshenko’s defeat by comedian Zelensky in Ukraine

As early results show West-backed President Petro Poroshenko looks certain to be defeated by comic Volodymyr Zelensky, US and EU officials have queued up to congratulate the political rookie, all looking for “strong partnership.”

The US embassy in Ukraine was apparently the first western mission that rushed to address Zelensky as exit polls showed the comedian leading with 72-74 percent of the vote.

“We congratulate President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky,” the American diplomats tweeted. “We look forward to continuing the strong U.S.-Ukraine partnership with President-elect Zelenskyy.”
