Elected President

Petro Poroshenko

Snap presidential elections held in Ukraine on 25 May 2014 resulted in Petro Poroshenko being elected President of Ukraine.[3] Originally scheduled to take place on 29 March 2015, the date was changed following the 2014 Ukrainian revolution.[4][5] Poroshenko won the elections with 54.7% of the votes, enough to win in a single round.[1][6] His closest competitor, Yulia Tymoshenko, emerged with 12.81% of the votes.[1] The Central Election Commission reported voter turnout over 60%, excluding the regions not under government control.[7][8] Since Poroshenko obtained an absolute majority in the first round, a run-off second ballot (on 15 June 2014[9]) was unnecessary.[3][10]

The election was not held everywhere in Ukraine. During the 2014 Crimean crisis, Ukraine lost control over Crimea, which was unilaterally annexed by Russia in March 2014.[11][12][nb 1] As a result, elections were not held in Crimea.[3] Of the 2,430 planned ballot stations (in Donbas), only 426 remained open for polling.[14] The self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic, controlling large parts of Donbas, had vowed to do everything possible to disrupt the elections on their territory.[15]

Petro Poroshenko won the presidency and served a full presidential term until 2019, losing to Volodymyr Zelensky.
