Petro Poroshenko said that today he voted for the future of our country and its further progress on the path to the European Union.
“I voted for Ukraine today, just as my entire family and the absolute majority of Ukrainians,” the President said.
Petro Poroshenko stressed the importance of today’s elections. The Head of State stressed that “this is an extremely important historic vote for the non-return to the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire”. “That is why it is extremely important for Ukraine. We have invited an unprecedented number of international observers and a huge number of international media that you see. I am absolutely convinced that Ukraine will win,” the President said.
“Today, I am confident that the elections were well organized. The expression of will of the citizens will be preserved. This is an absolute condition for our movement forward.

To the continuation of extremely important reforms that are absolutely vital for Ukraine. That is why these elections are so important,” the Head of State emphasized.
Petro Poroshenko also expressed the opinion that the current elections are democratic and all candidates “had a unique access to the media”. “Unfortunately, it seems to me that the opposition candidates took advantage of this in order to throw mud at everyone … But I firmly believe that Ukrainians have repeatedly demonstrated an extremely high level of responsibility in voting. I’m sure it will be so today as well,” the President noted.

In particular, yesterday, as promised by the authorities, the first launch of high-speed train to Mariupol took place, connecting Mariupol with Kyiv.
