Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky is likely to win the Ukrainian presidential elections but he will not last in office, said Mikheil Saakashvili, former Georgian President and Governor of Odessa, during a press conference in Warsaw on Friday.

He added that current Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko hopes to win parliamentary elections and thus seize the victory by blocking rival initiatives in the Ukrainian parliament and holding a premier post.

"In Ukraine, everything is rotten. I saw it from aside and from inside. Everything is rotten, both in the government and in rural councils," stressed Saakashvili.

Zelensky won the first round of the presidential election on March 31, gathering 30 percent of the vote. He will face Poroshenko in the runoff election on April 21.
