Petro Poroshenko Needs More Than Just Winning

The billionaire potentate Petro Poroshenko is up against a storm of protestors after he got declared the president of the Ukraine. For one thing, he is on the side of the capitalist Western powers. And he has an empire of sweetmeat factories. 

Petro earned over 54% of the votes in half of the results of the elections which took place recently. However, just a few moments had passed since his victory when trouble erupted. 

Separatists vowing to take revenge for the usurpation of their territory had the airport closed and Petro had to forgo his after election celebrations. 

The airport was made the target and truckloads of armed guerrillas ventured there and held it hostage. Petro has promised that he would thwart the pro-Russian elements. 

Also, he has the economy to think of since it has hit an all time low and is currently in recession. Petro spoke sincerely about his plans to end the random violence and bringing stability and order to the Ukraine. 

"My first decisive step will be aimed at ending the war, ending chaos, and bringing peace to a united and free Ukraine," he said. "I am certain that our decisive actions will bring fairly quick results."

Petro Poroshenko wanted to do away with the chaos that had become the order of the day in the Ukraine. But it will not be an easy task. It will require Petro to go against the grain of his nature. 

But on the whole he was hopeful that things will work out just fine in the end. Poroshenko’s rival in the election got a puny 13% of the votes which makes him clearly a loser. 

This result in the elections is telling since the harmony of east and west is at an all time low since the post-cold war period. The ultimate decision will be taken on Monday when the last votes start trickling in. 

The issue at hand is whether Poroshenko will be welcomed by the majority of Russians and dissident elements that thrive at precisely such times when a leader is elected. 

"Despite provocations and violence, millions of Ukrainians went to the polls throughout the country, and even in parts of eastern Ukraine, where Russian-backed separatist groups sought to disenfranchise entire regions, some courageous Ukrainians still were able to cast their ballots," the White House quoted Obama as saying.
