The most difficult remains to be done for Volodymyr Zelenski, the comedian elected president of Ukraine

A comedian without political experience will become the president of Ukraine. It was an overwhelming victory for Volodymyr Zelenski in the second round of the election, he won more than 70% of the vote. The election was recognized as free and transparent, and it opens a new political era in Ukraine,

Donald Trump, Emmanuel Macron and several other Western leaders have called Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday evening to congratulate him. The phone calls formalize the victory of the young president. At 41, the actor changes his life while transforming the political life of his country. The most difficult starts for Volodymyr Zelensky. He maintained a deliberate blur on his agenda and strategic priorities. He will have to reveal them to his constituents and a hostile parliament. His team claims to have a plan to quickly pass a series of shock measures on the fight against corruption. But Volodymyr Zelensky's room for maneuver should be reduced before the legislative elections scheduled for October, apart from some general foreign policy orientations. Volodymyr Zelensky is eagerly awaited on a revival of peace talks with Vladimir Putin. The new president will take an oath on June 6.

The outgoing President Petro Poroshenko does not leave politics, he promises to support the new President during the transition. But afterwards, he warns that Volodymyr Zelenskiy will have a very strong opposition.

Petro Poroshenko wrote on social media that the Kremlin must rejoice over the victory of Volodomyr Zelensky: the Russians believe that with an inexperienced Ukrainian president, Ukraine will quickly return to Russia's orbit.
