According to the results known, Mr Petro Poroshenko was elected in the first round of the Ukrainian presidential election of 25 May 2014.
The French President, who met him in Paris on 7 March, warmly congratulates him on his election.
As the OSCE electoral observation mission has just noted in its preliminary report, there was a high turnout for the ballot, which was held in accordance with international standards despite the difficulties being encountered in the east of the country.
A new phase now begins in Ukraine which must enable political stabilization and economic recovery.
The French President lends the President-elect his support in successfully conducting national dialogue and implementing the expected institutional reforms.
The whole international community must responsibly support the crisis resolution initiated by this election in Ukraine./.
