“If final results are close to those of the exit polls, the Ukrainian president will have little chance to form a coalition on the basis of his party,” he said. “I would like to remind that at the last stage of the canvassing campaign Poroshenko claimed to be able to form a pro-presidential coalition in the Verkhovna Rada and finally have a person from his team, probably Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, on the post of prime minister.”“But in the end, we see that /Rada speaker/ Oleksandr Turchynov’s and /incumbent Prime Minister/ Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front has won more votes than expected,” Ignatov noted. “So, it looks like Yatsenyuk will continue as prime minister to conduct a policy independent from the president. And whereas until now, Poroshenko has tended for a not very tough format of relations with Russia and Ukraine’s eastern regions, now it will be next to impossible for him, for he will have to reckon with advocates of a more harsh scenario, the more so as other pro-war parties, such as Samopomoshch, the Radical Party and Svoboda, are winning high support.
The chairman of the international committee of the Russian parliament's lower house, Alexey Pushkov, said earlier Sunday, that Ukraine’s early parliamentary polls are unlikely to change the configuration of power in the country.
“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.”
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.
