The election of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was fabricated, country's former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in an interview with a Russian TV-channel.

"The [presidential] election was fabricated. There was definitely not 50 percent [of votes in support of Poroshenko]. There was a certain "rigged game". Americans put their stake on him and the election was "made." This election was absolutely illegitimate. There was no democracy there," Azarov said.

The former Ukrainian prime minister said that Poroshenko, however, failed to take advantage of his position as he "lost touch with reality."

Petro Poroshenko asked the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to declare the ousting of former President Viktor Yanukovych unconstitutional because he is afraid to share Yanukovych’s fate, Ukrainian politician Andriy Portnov said. - Sputnik International

According to Azarov, the Ukrainian president missed the opportunity to put an end to the war in Donbass and stop destroying the region on which the entire economy of the country used to be based.

He said the former prime minister has missed the opportunity to stop the war and stop destroying the region on which the entire economy of the country is based.

Azarov stressed that Ukraine needs to break the current regime and return to common sense. First, the war must be stopped and peace must be established, the ex-prime minister said.

"Second — to sit down and negotiate. Third — to restore economic relations with Russia and to stop practicing blackmail," he said.
