Ukraine elections: Zelensky wins 73% of votes in an overwhelming victory

Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has secured an impressive victory against incumbent president Petro Poroshenko in Sunday’s run-off, the first official results confirm.

The 41-year-old showman secured over 73 percent of the vote, the Central Election Commission’s latest data shows, with 75 percent of the ballots counted. Poroshenko only managed to rake up a bit over 24 percent of support in the second round of the presidential race, as Ukrainians overwhelmingly turned away from his policies, which have perpetuated the war in Donbass and plunged millions into poverty.

Ukrainians express uncertainty after initial presidential result

Ukrainians in Kiev react after comedian Volodymyr Zelensky topped the first round of Ukraine’s presidential election with almost twice the vote share of his nearest rival, incumbent Petro Poroshenko, according to partial results. Zelensky’s political experience had been limited to playing the president in a TV show when he announced his long-shot candidacy at the start of the year.

As conflict drags on, Ukrainians spurn Russian culture

After the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in 2014 and the outbreak of a deadly conflict with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, many Ukrainians have in recent years turned away from the cultural products of a country increasingly considered as hostile. The movement was also encouraged by the Ukrainian authorities, who sought, through sometimes controversial measures, to support local culture in the face of Russian industry accused of promoting the interests of the Kremlin.

War-displaced Ukrainians disenfranchised as election looms

More than a million Ukrainians have been displaced by war in the east of the country, and many are now facing barriers to voting in a presidential election. Just four percent of the displaced have registered for the March 31 election, NGOs say, leaving some of Ukraine’s most deprived people without an opportunity to affect the vote.

Putin’s Crimea & The War At Home | VICE on HBO (Trailer)

In 2014, Russia seized the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in one of the most brazen annexations of territory since World War II. Aside from economic sanctions, that land grab has largely been forgotten by the international community. More than four years on, Russia’s grip on Crimea seems stronger than ever. Isobel Yeung investigates how Crimeans are really faring under Russian control, and how Ukrainians are clinging to the hope of reunification.

Then…

On average, three women in the United States are killed each day by a current or former partner. With firearms greatly increasing the odds of homicide inside homes with reports of domestic violence, some states are making efforts to seize firearms from those with orders of protection against them. Meanwhile, other states have passed legislation making it easier for those who file protection orders to carry a weapon without a license. We sent Gianna Toboni to meet the women working to fix the shortcomings of a legal system that often fails to protect women.

Watch it this Friday at 7:30 PM and 11 PM EST on HBO.

The Struggle to Find Ukraine’s Missing Soldiers

During the course of the war in eastern Ukraine, hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers have been either captured as POWs or gone missing during the fighting.

During the battle of Ilovaisk in August 2014, Ukrainian soldiers became encircled by Russian regular soldiers and separatist fighters. After intense negotiations the Ukrainians eventually managed to secure safe passage to leave the town. However, that never happened. As the Ukrainians fled the town in their vehicles they were ambushed and slaughtered. It’s thought up to a thousand soldiers were killed and hundreds more were captured.

Many of these POWs were released over the course of the following week, however some were summarily executed and others still remain missing.

Families of the missing soldiers have had to endure a torturous and bureaucratic process to find their sons, passed from one ministry to another, with some families having to travel to rebel territory themselves to search for them. VICE News spoke with a British journalist, Lily Hyde, who has been documenting the efforts of families struggling to find their sons and with one mother who continues to wait for her son to return home, 18 months after he went missing.
