As Ukrainians go to the polls to elect their president tomorrow the result is not in much doubt: chocolatier and oligarch Petro Poroshenko will almost certainly be the next president of Ukraine. But what is in much graver doubt is how Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the separatists he backs in eastern Ukraine will react to this result. On Friday, Putin said that he would “respect the choice of the Ukrainian people.”
