"[Volodymyr] Zelenskyi leads after the first round, Poroshenko is behind him. Nobody dares to predict how the second round ends. Still, I tend to think that Poroshenko will win this presidential election," the Belarusian leader said.

Lukashenko noted that he would not be engaged in analytics and would not compare the two candidates.

According to him, if some Ukrainians believe that none of the candidates is suitable for the post of new president of Ukraine, then new elections should be held.

The first round of presidential elections took place in Ukraine on March 31. According to their results, showman Volodymyr Zelenskyi and incumbent head of state Petro Poroshenko advanced to the second round.

The Central Election Commission on April 7 scheduled the second round of presidential elections in Ukraine for April 21.
