Who won the Ukraine presidential election, recently?

[A]. Oleh Tyahnybok
[B]. Ihor Kolomoyskyi
[C]. Volodymyr Zelenskiy
[D]. Alexander Zakharchenko

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Ukrainian comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who played president in a TV series, is set to become the new president of Ukraine. He received 73.19% of the votes, while his opponent, incumbent President Petro Poroshenko saw support of 24.48%. Poroshenko, who was running for his second five-year term, has admitted defeat. Zelenskiy planned to continue European-backed talks with Russia on a so far largely unimplemented peace deal and would try to free Ukrainians imprisoned in Russia, which is holding 24 Ukrainian sailors among others.
