The second round of Ukraine’s presidential elections was held without systemic violations and in line with the Ukrainian legislation and international standards.

Chairperson of the Civil Network OPORA Olha Aivazovska said this during a press conference held at Ukrinform.

"The election day passed in a non-conflict manner, with due observance of the norms of the law on presidential elections and in line with international standards," she said.

According to Aivazovska, there were no systemic violations that could have affected the final result of voting.

"Thus, the election day was held at a high level. And the number of violations and their type actually do not differ much from the first round of elections, but the trend is positive, which means that the percentage of polling stations, where violations have been recorded by our observers, is significantly lower," Aivazovska emphasized.

As reported, the second round of Ukraine’s presidential elections was held on Sunday, April 21. According to the National Exit Poll, Volodymyr Zelensky won 73% of the vote, and Petro Poroshenko got 25.5%.

The voter turnout made up 62.07%.
