Russia says vote result shows Ukrainians want 'change': news agency

AFP  |  Moscow 

Russia's foreign ministry on Sunday said Ukraine had voted for change after exit polls showed comedian and political novice Volodymyr Zelensky winning the country's presidency in a landslide.

"Exit polls show the citizens of Ukraine voted for change. The new leadership now must understand and realise the hopes of its electors.

This of course applies to domestic as well as foreign affairs," deputy foreign minister Grigory Karasin told agency RIA Novosti.
