If from Satire to the Serious business of

From March to wants to save Vasil Holoborodko back to the Ukraine. Actually, he is a history teacher, but one Morning he wakes up as the President of the Ukraine and, with upright and faithful to the corrupt mess to muck out, for he holds the policy. The satirical television series "servants of the people", the President Holoborodko cleans up in the country, is one of the most popular of the Ukraine – in March, the third season is coming to television. Holoborodkos actor, actor Volodimir the girl to the door, outside of Satire, a lot: On 31. March, he is running as a candidate in the presidential election – with good chances.

Selensky is not a politician – this is his trump card for many Ukrainians, disillusioned with established politicians. President Petro Poroshenko, has done in the five years of his presidency, hardly anything against nepotism and corruption, among 28 registered presidential candidates in surveys, only 10 to 15 percent. Ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is 15 to 20 percent, on a par with the girl to the door. A on 31. January published the rank list of group Rating the girl to the door looks even on court 1, ahead of Tymoshenko. At the election on may 31. March must earn a candidate at least half of all votes, otherwise the first two will come on October 21. April runoff election.

"Poroshenko or Putin!"

Long Poroshenko hoped, despite a regular survey values to a victory in round two. Poroshenko sold to the Ukrainians as commander-in-chief in the fight against Russia, and as a patron of the Orthodox Church: Finally managed to Poroshenko, to move the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in Istanbul, the centuries, to approve Moscow assigned to the Church at the beginning of January the independence. With the new head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the Tomos, the decree on the autonomy, toured Poroshenko around the country. Where he came there, he presented on huge billboards as a Quasi-father of the Church. As the President announced at the end of January under the Slogan "Poroshenko or Putin!" his renewed candidacy, was transferred to his speech by a number of TV channels Ukrainian oligarchs, Prime Minister, Parliament speaker and other officials announced their support.

His Main adversary, Tymoshenko had a week earlier, in the Kiev sports Palace in front of 5000 from all over the country by Bus pre-gekarrten supporters of her party, Fatherland, to the candidate elect. The former Prime Minister is said to have already agreed with several Ukrainian oligarchs, and with the Minister of the interior Arsen Avakov, presumably the second most powerful politician in the Ukraine, about their support. While Poroshenko's command, the management apparatus, Tymoshenko is a country excellently organized party.

Poland seek

Tymoshenko is relying on a populist campaign promise: as President, Ukraine will obtain within just five years, the neighbours of Poland; the wages would have to more than triple. Tymoshenko also promises a radical reduction in the price of gas for private households, according to Economists, a completely unrealistic announcement.

A quarter of voters still undecided. And both Tymoshenko as Poroshenko fighting with a Handicap: The number of resolute opponents exceeds that of your trailer significantly. According to the choice of researchers in the Active Group, one-quarter of the respondents said that they wanted to vote for Tymoshenko. For Poroshenko, the rejection rate was even higher at 30 percent. And even in the case of Newcomer Selensky 13 percent said they would vote for him.

This opposition has various reasons: Selensky is a popular actor and producer of Dozens of successful TV shows and movies – through political commitment, but he was never. His candidacy he announced on new year's eve in the TV channels 1+1, one of the most-watched station in the Ukraine. Since then, Selensky is sent with Videos on Facebook, Youtube or Instagram. But when the ambassadors of the EU asked countries at a Meeting in January, according to his political program, relegating the girl to the door to his advisors and asked his followers to make him on the social networks program proposals.

Checks are not provided for

at the end of January published a 4-page program Selenskys is a compendium of populism: It ranges from the introduction of direct democracy and referendums on the participation of all Ukrainians in the national wealth from birth, free University of choice for outstanding graduates, up to the Road on a European level.

another claim is likely to be happy especially the oligarchs their billions of assets often have doubts methods: Every business man should be allowed to legalize his entire fortune, no matter how it was obtained, in full, if he pays out five percent of the taxes. However, the requirement to check the oligarchs, in any way, is missing in the program, completely.

This is not surprising, in view of the most prominent supporter Selenskys little: The TV channel 1+1 belongs to the oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, which is moved according to the magazine "Novoye Vremya" recently, from Switzerland to Israel, to escape, allegedly, after an FBI investigation because of questionable transactions in the United States a request for extradition from Washington. 1+1 is reported the only positive over the girl to the door, even as it turned out, that it takes the girl to the door at his campaign appearances with the truth.

company in Russia

So Selensky claimed in an Interview, according to Russia's aggression in Ukraine in 2014 he sold his Russian production companies. However, Radio Liberty found out that Selensky was involved through a holding company in Cyprus is very probably to Russian firms and asked these not to grants of Moscow. We were referred to this report as a lie, only a few days later, he acknowledged its accuracy. In the meantime, he wants the company sold. Selenskys close to Kolomoisky also shows another Detail: His bodyguards seem to be paid for by the oligarchs.

in addition to the surveys, leading a Trio of Poroshenko, Tymoshenko and Selensky have 25 other candidates for the presidential election to register. Since the Moscow-friendly party leader is Yuri Boyko, the comes in surveys up to 10 per cent, and the scandal-free, as an innovator champion, but little charismatic Ex-defense Minister Anatoly Gritsenko (8.5 percent). However, none of them seems to have a Chance to enter in the runoff election.
