KIEV, April 8. /TASS/. Presidential hopeful Vladimir Zelensky’s election campaign staff has requested the Ukrainian Interior ministry to provide security for the presidential candidate, Interior Minister councilor Ivan Varchenko said at a briefing on Monday.

"Speaking of our engagement with the candidates, prior to the first round of the elections we were safeguarding nine presidential hopefuls. At the moment, Presidential candidate Vladimir Zelensky’s election campaign staff has requested such protection," the UNN news agency quotes him as saying.
