When Ukraine's would-be president Volodymyr Zelenskiy showed his ballot to a swarm of TV and photo cameras on election day, little did he know that he would not only win the vote by a landslide but would also face a fine.
The court said that Zelenskiy, who was absent, had pleaded guilty.
Zelenskiy's rivals cried foul after the beaming comedian showed the ballot with the tick next to his name to journalists before casting it.
Zelenskiy is expected to be sworn in later this month.
