KIEV (AA) - Ukrainians are getting ready to cast ballots on Sunday's presidential election, where incumbent President Petro Poroshenko and comedian Vladimir Zelenskiy will face each other in a runoff.

In the first round of the presidential polls held on Mar. 31, Poroshenko and Zelenskiy, according to official figures, became the top two candidates by getting 15.95 and 30.24 of votes, respectively.

Since no candidate surpassed 50% threshold, the nation’s next president will be chosen in a runoff scheduled for Apr. 21.
