Exit Polls Show "Choco-King" Poroshenko Winning Ukraine Election As Expected (US Hardly Enthused)

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As was largely expected, Petro Poroshenko - the candy tycoon known as the "chocolate king" - has easily beaten Yulia Tymoshenko - nicknamed "gas princess" - to become Ukraine's next president according to exit polls:

  • *UKRAINIANS ELECT POROSHENKO AS PRESIDENT: EXIT POLL
  • *POROSHENKO RECEIVES 55.9%, TYMOSHENKO RECEIVES 12.9% OF UKRAINE VOTE: EXIT POLL
  • *POROSHENKO PLEDGES TO `BRING PEACE TO A UNITED UKRAINE'
  • *POROSHENKO PLEDGES TO TRAVEL TO UKRAINE'S EASTERN REGIONS
  • *UKRAINE'S POROSHENKO: FIRST STEP IS TO END WAR, CHAOS, DISORDER
  • *POROSHENKO PLEDGES TO `BRING PEACE TO A UNITED UKRAINE'
  • *POROSHENKO: UKRAINE-RUSSIA RELATIONS MOST DIFFICULT IN 200 YRS
  • *POROSHENKO: UKRAINIANS TODAY CHOSE TO TURN TOWARD EUROPE
  • *UKRAINE'S POROSHENKO SAYS HE'S READY FOR TALKS WITH RUSSIA
  • *UKRAINE NEEDS EARLY PARL ELECTIONS THIS YR: POROSHENKO
  • *POROSHENKO: UKRAINE WON'T GIVE UP CRIMEA

Hope remains for stability in the nation as Poroshenko, as we noted here, is the most middle of the road - pro-Europe (but not too much) and most importantly believes Ukraine joining NATO "is probably not a good idea," which will likely disappoint the US. There has been violence in the East but it does not seem widespread enough to warrant any negative conclusions from Putin for now.

 

 

 

 

As we noted previously, Poroshenko is in the "middle"..

 

The next stape is, of course, whether Putin will accept these results. A factor that may impact Russia’s reaction to the presidential elections is the scale of hostility in eastern Ukraine. Depending on this factor, as well as the rate of participation (they are to some degree interrelated), we see the following scenarios:

Base case (65% probability): de facto, not de jure recognition – hostilities moderate towards the start of elections, rate of participation is relatively high in eastern Ukraine.

 

Optimistic scenario: de jure and de facto recognition (15%) in case of a significant de-escalation of military tension, progress in engaging the eastern representatives of pro-Russian forces in the peace process, relatively high rate of participation.

 

Pessimistic scenario: military escalation, eastern Ukraine boycotts elections; Russia’s meddling becomes significant (20% probability).

Turnout rates are reportedly high...

Ukrainians voted Sunday in a presidential election many hoped would steer the country back to stability, notching significant turnout figures despite shuttered polling stations across two rebel-held regions in the east.

but rumors of 'hackers' rigging the election are also spreading...

A group of hackers has been arrested in Kyiv with specialized equipment intended to rig the results of the Ukraine’s presidential election, according to Victor Yagun, deputy head of the Security Service of Ukraine, known as the SBU.

Ukraine wont give up Crimea...he says

LOL the only way they can go to Crimea without a visa is if they join Russia again like the old days.

His best bet is to federalize the constitution, put in a clause about staying neutral and never forming any military alliances.  Then he can get some good gas prices from Russia and he can welcome investments in from both Russia and the EU.  He can make visa free travel agreements with both countries and he can sit back and enjoy economic growth. Simple formula for success.

If Poroshenko doesn't do what the West tells him,the threat is already been levelled.  They'll just do to him what they did to Yanukovitch.

Line up NED money, pump it through Ukrainian astroturf "NGOs" to pay and organize people to make a mess in Kiev again.  Amplified by getting their MSM handmaidens to repeat an endless drone of bullcrap about Mr. Poroshenko until he relents.

It's not as if the USA has to do that much to forment civil strife.  You've already got eastern portions of the nation in armed conflict and probably very alienated to the point they will never truly return.  At best, Lugansk and Donetsk will become this decade's Crimea, opting for autonomy and get it only on paper as Kiev continues to run the show.  Then, of course, you have the craptastic Ukrainian economy in full implode mode.

Wouldn't be hard for the CIA to "Yanukovitch" the new President.

I find it amazing how many Putin supporterts there are on Zerohedge. As someone whos country was occupied by Russians for 50 years, I can tell you that living even today with the Russian occupants is a nightmare. Many of them still dont speak my native language, not because it is hard to learn my language, but because they simply choose to not learn it as they expect that Russian empire will be re-established one day and all their "suffering" under "fascist" government that made them learn our language and respect our traditions will be over.

How would /do you like when in Califnornia or other border states in the US people simply wont talk to you in English? Thats how we are feeling for 50+ years when all those occupants(including their military) arrived  from the mighty Russia. They "freed" us from Nazis, while in 1949 killing and deporting tens of thousands of my people to Siberia to die in winter. They deported Tatars also(they only re-settled back in Crimea udner Ukrainian government), so you can understand why they dont support Russians in their native Crimea today.

As for Eastern Ukraine, some of you seem to forget Chechenya. That same Russia today, that lied to us about not having any military in Crimea, is now (always) complaining about civil rights and "peaceful" residents(armed with RPGs, AK47s etc etc) being attacked by Ukrainian army. Imagine that...those peaceful residents with AK47s and RPGs take over buildings and they expect that Ukrainian army in Ukraine(!) wont do anything?!?...Whats next Ukrainian police in Ukraine? 

In Chechenya Russians didnt care if they killed civilians, terrorists or seperatists, 200k dead in Chechenya. All they wanted was to be independent from Russia.... But hey! Russia Today wont talk about that, no wonder many on here dont even know about that. Think about that next time you fantasise about Putin.

Sorry for my grammar English is not my first or second language.

I won't even begin to comment on Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Central African Republic, nor Egypt.

Your propaganda would sound less cheap if you didn't conflate Russia with the USSR.

This guy is at best a propagandist who perfectly knows that his stuff is babble and simply wishes for it to replace facts. Problem: his stuff is so gross that only people with already a similar mindset can be attracted to it.

At this point, he fools nobody, including himself.

At worst, he believes what he writes and he is past the point of salvation.

It was 1994-1999. Read up on it "fool". They killed Chechenyans because they wanted to be independant from Russia. Russia didnt have any problems killing 200k seperatists and civilians then. Can you tell me whats the difference between Chechenya and Donetsk & Lugansk? Why Russia didnt have problems killing people there in much larger numbers? At least Ukrainian army doesnt bomb buildings like Russians did.

 What is being 'conflated' is USA and Russian citizenship.

The primary duty of a US citizen is to bitch about his/her own government.

Same goes for a Russian citizen.

The complaint that US citizens ought to be distressed more, complaining more, about what foreign governments do than what the US does smacks of an imperialist mind-set and hubris.

Sorry if you don't like your foreign government. But don't expect the US government to 'fix' what you don't like. The meddling, the interventions, the so-called 'policing of the world', has ruined our own government. And it hasn't done much good either, whether globally reducing militarism, advancing human rights, or individually for Vietnam, Iraq, Haiti, etc.

The professed humanitarianism of the interventionists is irritatingly false.

Militarism corrupts. And no government puts the interests of others before its own.

As Memorial Day arrives, consider:

On television there will be the millionaires’ farce of giant war profiteers Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Maytag, General Dynamics, General Electric, General Motors, Bell Helicopter, Unysis, Aerojet, Raytheon, MIT, Alliant Techsystems, etc., running ads to convince viewers that they themselves are public-spirited corporations, and the dead and wounded weren’t maimed for a nickel mine, a helicopter company, a munitions factory, an oil field, pipeline or shipbuilder. With a $700 billion military budget, and the revolving door spinning between the General Staff and the board rooms of the weapons builders, it’s clear that President Eisenhower didn’t get his wish when he warned, “I don’t want people who have a financial stake in crisis and tensions to have a voice in national policy.”
http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/05/23/remembering-on-memorial-day/

If it sounds like the big boys are dividing the spoils among themselves; it’s because they are. Exxon, BP, Shell; they’re all here. They all have their contracts in hand, and they’re all drilling their brains out thanks to the American servicemen and women who gave their lives for some trumped up baloney about WMD.
...  And even now–after all the reasons for going to war have been exposed as lies–the farce continues. Nothing has changed. Nothing. There’s still no talk of reparations, no official investigation, no indictments, no prosecutions, no trials, no penalties, no nothing. Not even a stinking apology. Just a big “up yours” Iraq. We’re way too important to apologize for killing a million of your people and reducing your five thousand year old civilization to a pile of rubble.

You do not know your very recent history very well.  The Russians absolutely slaughtered the Chechens, fighters and civilians alike.  Boys found with bruises on their right shoulders were summarily executed.  Villages were pillaged and women were raped. 

Now this last bit might get your attention.  The CIA helped the Russians in Chechnya.  Yeah.  Russia, not on the good team.

There’s no dispute that the people who have lived in Ukraine have suffered and died because of that region’s geography. The power players targeting that area for their own interests, such as the John McCains, Victorial Nulands, Ian Brzezinskis and Hunter Bidens, are back again this year, especially with the European-Banker-Federal-Reserve-IMF-American-Empire consortium pushing in every way it can to co-opt the people for their debt society on the way to world government.

Putin is their problem because he would like to keep Ukraine as a buffer zone against the European Banker attacks and the globalists' demolition of European sovereignty and as an important area of commerce for Russian and Ukraine interests.

It would help you greatly if you would understand the people behind this putsch. You mentioned Chechnya. Here’s just one revelation of who is doing the pushing behind the US government.

“This harshness towards Putin is perhaps explained by the fact that, in the US, the leading group which pleads the Chechen cause is the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya (ACPC). The list of the self-styled 'distinguished Americans' who are its members is a rollcall of the most prominent neoconservatives who so enthusastically support the 'war on terror'. They include Richard Perle, the notorious Pentagon adviser; Elliott Abrams of Iran-Contra fame; Kenneth Adelman, the former US ambassador to the UN who egged on the invasion of Iraq by predicting it would be 'a cakewalk'; Midge Decter, biographer of Donald Rumsfeld and a director of the rightwing Heritage Foundation; Frank Gaffney of the militarist Centre for Security Policy; Bruce Jackson, former US military intelligence officer and one-time vice-president of Lockheed Martin, now president of the US Committee on Nato; Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute, a former admirer of Italian fascism and now a leading proponent of regime change in Iran; and R James Woolsey, the former CIA director who is one of the leading cheerleaders behind George Bush's plans to re-model the Muslim world along pro-US lines. 

 "The ACPC heavily promotes the idea that the Chechen rebellion shows the undemocratic nature of Putin's Russia, and cultivates support for the Chechen cause by emphasizing the seriousness of human rights violations in the tiny Caucasian republic. It compares the Chechen crisis to those other fashionable 'Muslim' causes, Bosnia and Kosovo - implying that only international intervention in the Caucasus can stabilise the situation there.

"In August, the ACPC welcomed the award of political asylum in the US, and a US-government funded grant, to Ilyas Akhmadov, foreign minister in the opposition Chechen government, and a man Moscow describes as a terrorist. Coming from both political parties, the ACPC members represent the backbone of the US foreign policy establishment, and their views are indeed those of the US administration....Allegations are even being made in Russia that the west itself is somehow behind the Chechen rebellion, and that the purpose of such support is to weaken Russia, and to drive her out of the Caucasus. The fact that the Chechens are believed to use as a base the Pankisi gorge in neighbouring Georgia - a country which aspires to join Nato, has an extremely pro-American government, and where the US already has a significant military presence - only encourages such speculation. Putin himself even seemed to lend credence to the idea in his interview with foreign journalists on Monday."
--John Laughland, trustee of the British Helsinki Human Rights Group
The Chechens' American friends, 8 September 2004

Taurine, there are a lot of Putin cocksuckers on ZH who must be cringeing at the fact that

Ukraine has voted democratically despite the Kremlin backed vodka swilling knuckleheads

in Luhansk and Donetsk trying to violently disrupt the presidential vote. They dont know what 

'Soviet' means and look at Putin as being the last saviour to fight the Western banks/culture.

Putin will fall on his own sword and until then all you idiots can suck him off, he wont thank you for it

but you him. Fascism is alive and well in Ukraine, less than 1% voting for the Right Sector candidate,

a hell of a %age compared to Le Pen, BNP and other parties within Europe.

 

Congratulations to Poroshenko, a sweet victory.

No way is this boy going to see his chocolate factory's freeze up in winter

In Chechenya Russians didnt care if they killed civilians, terrorists or seperatists, 200k dead in Chechenya. All they wanted was to be independent from Russia....

No they didn't and neither did the U.S. clandestine service care when they armed those "freedom fighters" in Chechenya and Georgia and now Ukraine!

These areas suffer because of their geography. There would have been a chance for peace if it hadn’t been for people like John McCain and a banker takeover of the U.S. government and if the U.S. government had used its superpower strength to provide true support for freedom.

Kiev follows the pattern in Chechnya and Georgia. And like the other manufactured crises, it’s not about consumer products, shopping or free trade moving into Ukraine from the west.

It’s about petroleum; the pipe lines, the oil from the Caucasus, it’s about drawing the line of western Europe to cut off Russian access to oil tankers.

It’s about installing a western puppet government in Ukraine that will work with the EU bankers in enslaving the Ukrainian people. The mob, like mobs in other countries, thinks it is about moving their economy toward “western ideals,” and all the while they are picking up their invitation to tyranny.

THIS CRISIS IS ABOUT CHANGING THE GOVERNMENT, removing the ties to Russia and installing the ties to Brussels.

"By way of deception you shall make war" is the translation of the Mossad motto. To simplify: lie. And in the Ukraine crisis, the lies are coming fast and they have been arriving for decades.

Brzezinski Mapped Out the Battle for Ukraine in 1997 | Antiwar.com

By Chris Ernesto March 14, 2014

Excerpt:

Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine?

One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire. still.”

“However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia. 

The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be “unapologetic” in perpetuating “America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.”…

Brzezinski wrote that Eurasia is “the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy continues to be played,” and that “it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America…”

http://original.antiwar.com/chris_ernesto/2014/03/14/brzezinski-mapped-out-the-battle-for-ukraine-in-1997/ 

And by challenging America, Putin challenges the NWO, i.e., Van Rompuy's global governance.

“Ukraine could become a NATO member within a year or two as long as there is political will and public support to do so, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Petro Poroshenko has said. ‘I believe that with a political will and a public wish to do so, public support for politicians in charge, and a clear and right awareness policy, this [becoming a NATO member] could be accomplished within a year or two,’ he told journalists in Brussels on Thursday after a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission held in Brussels on the sidelines of the alliance's North Atlantic Council meeting.”  December 4, 2009, KyivPost

And today from the KyivPost (Poroshenko already placating the United States):

Less than 30 minutes after the polls closed, Poroshenko addressed thousands of supporters at his Kyiv headquarters in Arsenal Mystytskiy in a victory rally. He spoke in English, Ukrainian and Russian -- a refreshing contrast to Ukraine's first four presidents.

"You see that all exit polls held by the most trustworthy institutions say that the elections ended in the first tour and the country has a new president. First of all I want to thank Ukrainian people who showed a record turnout," Poroshenko said. "Neither rain no thunderstorm - although a storm is a good sign - did not prevent them. I want to thank all the Ukrainians for the trust they showed in me and my team. Over 90 percent of Ukrainians voted for a united Ukraine - not a federative state. I thank very much for this too. It was a basic issue of my program; 80 percent of Ukrainians supported the European vector for Ukraine. I want to especially thank the people of Crimea who in the most difficult conditions did what they can, managed to get out of Crimea and voted. Now we can say for sure - all the country voted. The president of the whole Ukraine was elected."

Poroshenko said he will try to end the war against Ukraine instigated by Kremlin-backed separatists.

"The first steps of my team will focus on ending the war, the chaos, the unrest and bring peace to the land of Ukraine," Poroshenko said. "My first trip as president will be to the Donbas (of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts). I will thank them. And I will thank the Ukrainian military who protected the people and the polling stations. We will take unhesitating steps to implement the association agreement with the European Union."

I don't think Russia will let go so easily

snippet

 

As Soviet strategic literature has always taught, the most important pre-war preparation is the psychological preparation of the populace. In Chapter 7 of Marshal V.D. Sokolovskii’s classic text, Soviet Military Strategy, we read that “victory in war is quite unthinkable without thorough and timely preparation of the country and armed forces.” Sokolovskii’s text further states, “The political preparation of the morale of the people is of decisive importance … since the use of weapons of mass destruction in a war imposes exceptionally high and unprecedented demands on the political morale of the population.” It therefore goes without saying that the population must be taught “love of the motherland.” At the same time, the United States must be blamed for plotting Russia’s destruction. As the text of Soviet Military Strategy explains, “Hatred of the enemy should arouse the desire to destroy the armed forces and military-industrial potential of the aggressor and achieve complete victory in a just war.”

RT reports today that “Poroshenko promised that ‘we will have a united and unitary, not federative state' and that he will not recognize the results of the Crimean nor the Donetsk and Lugansk referendums.

“The tycoon stressed that ending the military conflict in eastern Ukraine and stabilizing the situation in the country in general will be the top-priority tasks of his presidential program. Earlier, Poroshenko noted he believes a stable Ukraine is “impossible” without dialogue with Russia. With that, Poroshenko said he will recognize neither the results of the Crimean referendum, in which the vast majority of Crimeans voted for joining Russia, nor the referendums held in several eastern regions, which resulted in the proclaiming of Donetsk and Lugansk as “people’s republics.””

So Ukraine gets a reset and who/what gets into power? Yes, another oligarch. So for those that think a reset changes much, it just changes hands, from one oligarch to another.

And with regard to the CIA, they don't care. They are there to play with whomever is in power. red pill/blue pill, blah blah blah.

It's about government of any party against people.

Poroshenko is a US puppet who will try put Ukraine in NATO and will order a war of extermination against Ukrainians who do not want to become slaves.

Looks like Madeleine Albright did a good job in Kiev today, even without Nuland cookies:

Wonder if Albright brought some Iraqi children to throw onto the grill. Kievan Yatzis love a good old human barbeque.

a smart politician always deals in complete contradiction.

"probably not a good idea to join nato and 'wont give up crimea' are total contradictions and make no sense.

the only way poroshenko will get back crimea to ukraine is if he simply gives russia the exact conditions and deals that yanukovich gave. and even then----why should russia give crimea back right away?
he could just say russia will return a 99 year lease on crimea in exchange for renormalization and a full default of ukraine's obligations to the west.

how beautiful would that be for putin. getting ukraine to IMMIDIATELY DEFAULT ON IMF LOANS of 15 billion. what a coup!. making the UMF look like total motherfucking morons would pay HUGE dividends on future diplomatic efforts aimed at producing juntas and coups.

Fatboy Poroshenko will keep using Nazi Right Sector and National Guard death squads in the South & East Ukraine because they are the only forces willing to murder their fellow nationals.

As a diplomat I would say, you want Crimea, come and get it(sarc). This guy says so many contradictory and nothing statements I would watch out that the Jewish Community is not making a long run around the back end of this Mexican standoff. That said, its time for Putin to play ball with him and see where this game goes. In business it is normal for Jews to help each other while cooperating to lock others out of supply chains. No other culture plays this game nearly as well and forget differing cultures cooperating to defend themselves against the Jews.This situation is made worse when they infect political systems that theoretically are intended to benefit all without favor, but never do. It is much safer to go with someone who has no hint of tribal affiliation.

Well I am so happy that Victoria Nuland spent $5 Billio of US taxpayer money to get this fat feckin' Choco oligarch elected. What would the US people do without Victorias and the rest of the embedded AIPAC group?

I suspect 5 Billion is a low figure/estimate. We're talking about Neo Con Artists/Assholes here. If the military industrial complex/US govt fleece the US taxpayers hundreds of Billions year after year, 5 Billion for the important Ukrainian theatre doesn't sound right.

As expected, no report about the key data of the elections: neo nazis have no popular support whatsoever.

It worked exactly as 'americans' wanted it to.

They empowered their nazi henchmen and then made them disappear.

By crippling Ukraine by taking out Crimea, the chess player has played the hand wanted by 'americans'

It is now a national concern for Ukrainians to get back what they were stolen of.
No matter the elected president.

Stolen? Hardly. Crimea never belonged to Ukraine in the first place. It can be argued that Ukraine stole Crimea upon declaring independence. Besides, it has been the overwhelming wish of the people in Crimea (as expressed in referendum) to rejoin Russia.

It's a done deal. Crimea is gone. And more regions will become independent sooner or later.

If Ukraine doesn't kick the IMF and World Bank out, I suspect it will be a matter of time before the Ukrainians get fed up with the government and do another regime change of their own choosing.

An 'american' election requires several candidates to give that 'american' profile.

That woman simply served to make the number. 'Americans' do not work that way in elected governed countries.

What matters the most for 'americans' is to impose the political issues domestic politicians are forced to deal with.

Also,as reported weeks ago, 'americans' did not expect Ukraine to join NATO. What they wanted is to implant a trojan horse that would play both sides.

Ukraine seems to have taken that road.

I just keep wondering what the long term relationship will be between right-sector nazis and their zio counterparts ... historically that has been like mixing vitriol and water.

Will they cooperate to exterminate their orthodox countrymen, or will they devolve into fighting each other?

Since he is not someone hand picked by USSA,  I figure he will be assassined or a coup will overturn him.   And shit will be blamed on Putin/Russia

The process will continue until someone assigned by USSA "won" the election.

Sad.. but this is the only way USSA survive with 17 Trillions debt.  All human on earth must use usd...

US / CIA's bag of tricks for removing obstacles is quite rich: Assassination, coup, "car accident", "boat accident", "plane accident", sudden development of cancer or other terminal illness (like former popular anti-US president Hugo Chavez of Venezuela), sudden heart attack, sudden stroke, "apparent suicide" (lots of them under Bill Clinton and GW Bush), sudden "scandal" of some sort (via fabrication or entrapment), massive funding for extremists to cause social unrest in Ukraine, pressuring NATO and EU  countries to adopt sanctions and uncooperative/hostile policies toward Ukraine's attempts to improve the economy, stirring up conflicts with neighboring countries, false flag terrorist operations (like 9/11), ... etc etc (the list is long, and I'm sure many of the creative plots are beyond my knowledge and ability to decypher, or even imagine). More often than not, a combination of all feasible responses will be used to achieve their goal.

 

It will be fun to watch how the Ukrainian theatre changes in the coming months.
