The results of the presidential election that took place on 25 May 2014 
partly confirmed the political trend that had emerged already during the 
Ukrainian revolution of 2013-2014: despite the active participation of 
the far right in the revolution, its political role became comparatively 
marginal. In the presidential election, which led to the landslide 
victory of democratic candidate Petro Poroshenko already in the first 
round (54.70%), Svoboda’s Oleh Tyahnybok obtained 1.16% of the vote, 
while the Right Sector’s Dmytro Yarosh won 0.70%.
