19:51 Zelensky promises to come and break the system.
19:49 Final word Starts Zelensky. Thank you Poroshenko for all the achievements, but wonders – why the President attributed all the achievements to himself personally. Bezviz – merit and diplomats, the army – deserves volunteers, veterans, people, Tomos – Filaret.
19:48 Yes, of course, there are few meanings, just slogans.
19:47 Zelensky asks if Poroshenko is ashamed? Poroshenko says – no.
19:43 Zelensky emphasizes that he never spoke to Kadyrov. About the fact that he promised to kneel – also not true.

19:29 Now Poroshenko recalled a friend and business associate of Zelensky-Kolomoisky. Again Poroyshkno called Zelensky a brilliant casing – within the ministers Azarov, Kolomoisky, the Russians and so on.
19:28 On the severed hands – Poroshenko said he was not a judge, not the executioner. According to the president, all his friends, if they are suspects, will be arrested.
19:25 The question of Zelensky is now – there is more "a flow of consciousness" about Roshen's sweets and so on. A funny question is why Poroshenko's friends have two hands.
19:23 Zelensky says that he is not his opponent, but his sentence. The comedian says he did not hide from the agendas, he was not in Russia, he did not speak to Putin.
19:22 Poroshenko asks a question to Zelensky – about competence. He would trust that the surgeon is not a pro. Something like.
19:20 Of course, as there was no doubt, Poroshenko commented on everything he could hear. The president says he has done more in the last 4 years than in the previous 20 years.
19:19 Poroshenko took up the issue of the army. And it explains who is to blame for Ilovaisk, Debaltsevo and so on – Russia is to blame. Now says Poroshenko on the fight against poverty. He remembers that he accepted the country in 2014 without money, without funds in treasury accounts. And Zelensky now offended the country with jokes, the president said.
19:18 Poroshenko says, well, here is incompetence, because he answered each of these questions many times.
19:16 Now questions will be asked. Zelensky read questions in Russian. There are many questions about sailors, about the Carpathian forests, and about Yanukovych, how much Poroshenko brought to Rotterdam +, why they did not remove immunity. Zelensky says – choose any question and answer.

19:14 Poroshenko calls Zelensky beautiful package, where everyone can find something for themselves.
19:13 Zelensky said that Poroshenko was hiding from the call of the recruiting office. And Putin's going to hide as well?
19:12 Poroshenko talks about foreign calls, about international calls. As Zelensky will do this, the current president is wondering?
19:11 The president begins by saying that Zelensky was running away from him all the time and did not tell him what he would do.
19:10 Tper speaks hurt. Zelensky devoted all his speech to the president, not to himself.
19:09 Zelensky remembers Poroshenko by inviting him to the bench. And it ends with the words, "Why are you all going there?"
19:08 Zelensky considers himself a simple man and the result of Poroshenko's mistakes.
19:07 Zelensky expressed many controversial things. He says the president would have freed Nasirov.
19:05 Zelensky Poroshenko criticizes, he booed. It is very difficult to run Ze. He says there are two Poroshenko – one, a good speaker, the second – constantly cheating. Every word is booed.
19:04 Zelensky said that in 2014 he voted for Poroshenko, but now he realized that he was wrong. Poroshenko's supporters shout "Ganba".
19:03 Zelensky's performance begins. It starts with a joke, says it feels like Vakarchuk. And he's a simple guy.
19:02 Poroshenko and Zelensky shook hands. Ze tried to play: "Let's applaud those who were brought by bus."

19:00 Poroshenko left his scene and went to Zelensky. Unexpectedly
18:57 The currency fell for Zelensky's debate to begin. And now the hymn!
18:56 Now there will be a draw. Poroshenko's fans, of course, are much more. They sing the president's name constantly.
18:55 There are clear regulations. Time is limited. We started with speeches for 5 minutes.
18:54 The presenters speak, Froliak spoke emotionally about the importance of the elections, and Kulikov talks about the rules.
18:53 It all starts – moderators Froliak and Kulikov left.
18:52 It seems strange. Poroshenko is already on stage, and on the other side is still singing Machete.
18:50 With Poroshenko came deputies and ministers.
18:48 Petro Poroshenko and his wife arrived at the stadium. Greet your fans. The perimeter president passed the whole fan zone.

18:05 Now the musicians are arguing who will sing. Of Zelensky is Viktor Pavlik, of Poroshenko – Lament Єremії.
18:00 Of course, the presence of two scenes in the stadium at the same time seems very old. In other words, will each presidential candidate present himself at his own stage?
17:40 At the stadium itself, the band KOZAK SYSTEM is the musical support of Petro Poroshenko.
17:35 Scenes in the Olympic, by the way, are the same. Without any symbolism.
Left Poroshenko scene, right – Zelensky. In the midst of law enforcement.
