TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Kiev (AP) - The actor and political newcomer Volodymyr Selenskyj clearly won the runoff election for presidential office in Ukraine. The pro-Western 41-year-old prevailed by a wide margin against incumbent Petro Poroshenko. Poroshenko acknowledged his defeat. TV star Selenskyj announced that he would first take care of the war in eastern Ukraine. Since 2014, government soldiers have been fighting against pro-Russian separatists there. About 13 000 people were killed according to UN data. The Minsk peace plan has been stuck for years.
