As the mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko commented to the journalists on the sidelines of the 55th Munich Security Conference, one of top questions the European and US politicians ask is about the upcoming presidential election results and the situation within the country before them.


Klitschko attended the official opening ceremony of the conference and met with the EU Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn, the US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker, the chairwoman of Germany’s Christian Democratic Union party Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and the chairman of the Christian Social Union parliamentary group in the Bundestag Alexander Dobrindt.

“Our international partners hope for stability in Ukraine and that the upcoming election will not bring on the turmoil and upheaval. The future development of Ukraine for the next five years will greatly depend on these results,” remarked Klitschko. “My opinion is that the present constellation of candidates is somewhat unexpected for our partners. So numerous questions about the chances and prospects of candidates arise,” he noted.

He also pointed out the emphasis, all policymakers whom he has met place on the interest of both Europe and the States in Ukraine being democratic powerful economy with stable political environment. “They voice the interest in exporting the stability into Ukraine rather than importing upheaval. The name of the winner is not so important today. What is more important is that who will be the president that defends Ukraine’s freedom and guarantees continuation of reforms as well as pro- European and pro-NATO course of the country,” stressed Klitschko.

The mayor of Kyiv also met with Chief Executive Officer of the World Bank Kristalina Georgieva and discussed the further cooperation in Kyiv’s transport infrastructure renovation. Also the World Bank considers further investment programmes of public private partnership.
