Poroshenko Apparent Victor in Ukraine Election

Ukrainian business tycoon Petro Poroshenko has claimed victory in the country's presidential election. Exit polls show that he will receive 55% of the vote.
Announcing his victory, Poroshenko promised to forge closer links with the EU and restore peace in restive eastern regions, where pro-Russian separatists disrupted voting. Poroshenko has also said he would never recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea.

The apparent president-elect promised he would support a parliamentary election in the country later this year.
