"Broke the principles of the campaign": as Poroshenko tries to gain trust of electorate before the second round of elections — RT in Russian

In the run-up to the second round of election of the president of Ukraine the acting head of state Pyotr Poroshenko made a number of unexpected announcements. Acting in the Freedom of speech program on ICTV TV channel, he urged to adopt the law on an impeachment of the president and spoke out in defense of Russian. At the same time the Ukrainian leader continued to develop a subject of progress of the country in modernization of army for reflection of "the Russian aggression". As experts believe, thus Poroshenko expects to keep sympathies of radical representatives of electorate and at the same time to attract voices of more moderate citizens, including in the east and the country South. However he realizes that chances of a victory in the second round at it are small therefore the law on an impeachment plans to use in the future as the lever of pressure upon Vladimir Zelensky if that occupies a presidential chair, analysts consider.
