MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Ukraine’s early parliamentary polls that were held on Sunday are unlikely to change the configuration of power in the country, according to Alexey Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house.

“It is already clear that the elections will not trigger any changes in the power structures, but the authorities cannot do anything new - it has no financial resources,” he wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday. “Ukraine has not the process of European integration ahead but a complete loss of independence for the tiny money the United States and the European Union would throw to it. Ukraine’s future is miserable.”

According to the results of the national and international exit polls and a poll conducted by the Inter television channel, the Petro Poroshenko Bloc is winning from 22 to 23% of the vote. It is followed by Yatesnyuk’s and Turchynov’s People’s Front with 19.7-21.8% Next are Samopomoshch led by Mayor of Lviv Andrei Sadovy (11-14.2%), Yuri Boiko’s Opposition Bloc (7/8-9.9%), Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party (about 6.5%), Oleh Tyahnybok’s Svoboda (5.8-6.3%), and Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna (5.6%).

Other parties, including the radical Right Sector and the Communist Party of Ukraine, have failed to overcome the five-percent barriers to win seats in the parliament.
