Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan of Armenia congratulated Volodymyr Zelensky on his landslide victory in Ukraine’s presidential election, the PM’s office said.
“Volodymyr Oleksandrovych, I am confident that assuming this high position you will make every effort to upgrade the deeply-rooted Armenian-Ukrainian relations to the benefit of the Armenian and Ukrainian peoples. I wish you every success in your new position of great responsibility,” Pashinyan said.
Zelensky, a 41-year-old TV star with no political experience, won 73 percent of the vote in the runoff election, The Washington Post said, citing national exit poll results broadcast by Ukrainian television. President Petro Poroshenko, who was running for his second five-year term, accepted defeat in a speech soon after the polls closed
