MOSCOW, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko rules out any candidate running for Ukraine’s presidency as a strong national leader who can unify the Ukrainian people.
“I believe none of the candidates who have been registered by Ukraine’s Central Election Committee up to now is able to do it,” she told reporters on Tuesday, adding that the winner would probably be the candidate standing for Russia-Ukraine co-operation.
The snap presidential election in Ukraine is scheduled for May 25. Fourteen candidates are registered. The country’s election committee closes registration on April 4 and the election campaign starts the next day.
