President Petro Poroshenko hasn’t yet announced whether he plans to run in a March 31 election, although he is expected to seek re-election. Monday marked the official start of campaigning. A poll of 2,017 eligible voters published last week put Poroshenko’s approval rating at just over 14 percent. Another likely candidate, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, had support from 16 percent of those surveyed, reported The Washington Post.

Incumbent candidate Petro Poroshenko has been mired in accusations of corruption which has continued to stalk Ukraine’s bid to become a more Western nation steeped in the rule of law and free markets.
