The incumbent president, Petro Poroshenko, agreed to the terms of the debate voiced by Volodymyr Zelensky, noting that he is ready to debate at the 70-thousand stadium “Olimpiyskiy”.
In his statement, Poroshenko also noted that the debate is not a show, being a president and a commander-in-chief is not a game. It is conducted not for the sight since the debate “is a serious discussion about the country’s development strategy, values, historical vector, priorities, the country does not just choose, it trusts its destiny.”
Poroshenko pointed out that the debate could be conducted on the basis of the Public Broadcasting Company since there are established rules.
“Let it be the stadium. I’m waiting for you, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych,” Poroshenko said.
