This political morning in Ukraine was thrilling. Both presidential candidates – Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelensky – have passed medical tests for alcohol and drugs.
To get drug-tested for politician is something new in Ukraine.
The proposal to pass tests appeared from Mr Zelensky after the team of current president has declared (not one time) that he and his wife look like people who use drugs.
By the way, Mr Poroshenko from time to time was suspended by journalists to give drunk-speeches.
Petro Poroshenko counterprosed to Volodymyr Zelensky to pass tests at the medical center of the State Olympic Stadium, where the presidential debates are to take place on 19 of April (another novelty of Ukrainian political process!).
But the problem is that there’s NO medical center at the stadium which may conduct medical tests. (You May see it on photos of Poroshenko’s testing)
And also the stadium is a state enterprise, so, acting President May use an administrative resource to influence the test process.
That is why Volodymyr Zelensky suggested to his opponent to use one of the best Kyiv private laboratories Eurolab, which has the medical base needed to perform the blood examination.
Today at 8AM by Kyiv time he gave blood for testing at that clinic.
But the president decided to hold his ground.
Petro Poroshenko gave blood for testing to some noname doctor at some room at the stadium, with his hand resting on cute chair with flowers.
I bet the results will be brilliant))
