Ukrainian candidates for president continue electoral campaigns

Petr Poroshenko, a candidate for president of Ukraine, promised to start his work at the president’s office with efforts to move towards integration into the European Union. He assured that Ukraine will start receiving gas from Slovakia in October and become independent from Russian gas in 2015.

Yulia Tymoshenko, ex-prime minister of Ukraine and leader of the Fatherland Party, accused large-scale businessmen of siding with Moscow.

Oleg Tsarev visited Slovyansk with a convoy carrying humanitarian aid. He urged Kiev to stop the anti-terrorist operation and order the Security Service and Alpha units to withdraw.

A group of Ukrainian lawmakers requested the Constitutional Court to clarify whether the president will be elected for a year or five years. MP Valery Karpuntsov expressed hope for a quick response.

According to article 103 of the Ukrainian Constitution, a president is elected for five years. However, the elections will be held off-year. Alexey Mukhin said that the elections were important and will determine the volume of financial aid the West will give. He predicts that Petr Poroshenko will win in either the first or the second round. The expert reminded that the Euromaidan protests had been organized under anti-oligarchic slogans, yet all the candidates for president are oligarchs.
