LVOV, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - Famous heavyweight boxer Vitaly Klitschko, who is leader of the Ukrainian UDAR (Punch) Party, has confirmed that he intends to run in the Ukrainian presidential election in 2015.
“Prior to making the final decision, I plan to consult the public,” the boxer said during the Ukrainian World Congress that opened in Lvov on Tuesday.
“I understand it as my responsibility to ensure that contemporary history begins in Ukraine after 2015, I consider the possibility to run for president,” the party leader said. He believes a “united candidate from the opposition” must run in the election, and it is “non- governmental organizations that must decide who that will be”.
