Russia's PM comments on Ukraine presidential election

Ukraine’s front-running presidential contender Vladimir Zelensky increased his lead in the runoff election, with 90.25% of ballots counted

MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has no illusions after the Ukrainian presidential election, but believes there is a chance to improve bilateral ties.

"I have no doubt: in regard to Russia the new head of state [in Ukraine] will adhere to the rhetoric that he used during the election campaign. He will repeat the well-known ideological formulas focused on various social groups," Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page.

"I don’t have any illusions about this," the prime minister said, noting: "At the same time, there are still chances for improving cooperation with our country."
