Petro Poroshenko “Willy Wonka” New Ukraine president

Petro Prorshenko; Ukraine's Chocolate and sweets Billionaire is elected president of Ukraine.

“But that is how things work in eastern Europe”  Petro Poroshenko; Ukraine’s Chocolate and sweets Billionaire is elected president of Ukraine.

We might think it strange to vote a chocolate factory billionaire as president of the country, we voted for a man with red Speedo’s  (aka underpants) to run our nation.

Even in the east where he was least popular, at least 1 in 3 people voted for him. With such a large primary vote a run off was not required.

So now there is talk of corruption, How Poroshenko got his billions, his connection to Euromaidan via his TV channels etc.

Curiously much of his wealth come from Russians enjoying the old Soviet era chocolates and sweets that his factories produce. Could the tensions over Ukraine and Crimea be solved by the taste buds of Russians?

Stranger things have happened.

So what does he actually look like?
