Celebrations at Zelenskyi HQ
"All the countries of the former Soviet Union. Look at us. Everything is possible" - Zelenskyi
The atmosphere at president-elect Volodymyr Zelenskyi’s headquarters was victorious. The candidate celebrated the first exit poll results, kissed his wife, and thanked his team for their support.
Meanwhile, guests had fun in the photo zone, played ping pong, and enjoyed several bars.
Hundreds of journalists from across the world were present for the moment when Zelenskyi arrived at his headquarters right in time for the first results of the national exit poll.
Zelensky thanked his family and his team for their support and thanked the country for its choice.
“All the countries of the former Soviet Union. Look at us. Everything is possible,” he said.
One of the first to congratulate the leader of the presidential race was his opponent Petro Poroshenko. Zelenskyi thanked the acting president for his willingness to help with advice. He stated that he plans to downsize the presidential administration and move it outside of Kyiv. He also wants to appoint new people for key state positions. Relations with Russia are to be built according to the Minsk format, which was developed by the current authorities.
“In addition to the Minsk Agreements, our primary task is, I believe, to return all our prisoners of war. I talked to the mothers of our sailors. I cannot make any promises, but I will do everything to bring our guys back home,” Zelenskyi said.
A spokesperson for Zelenskyi said that one of the candidate’s first priorities will be to remove parliamentary immunity for parliamentarians in an effort to fight government corruption.
