Spiegel Online: Ukrainians will elect a new president, and what do the candidates of the second round, officeholder Poroshenko and his opponent Selensky? They are both engaged in long-distance debatte. On Friday morning about 150 journalists watched Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during a blood test at the Kiev football stadium Olimpiski. One hour earlier Volodimir Selenski had appeared in a private clinic to give his samples.
About the blood test Petro Poroschenko said: “I think it is an extremely high threat when there is a suspicion that a person who might be a drug addict can become a candidate or even President of Ukraine, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Both candidates and every Ukrainian who will make a conscious choice in exactly two weeks are interested in closing this issue”. The Head of State stressed that a candidate to the highest post in the state cannot have such an addiction.
