In Ukraine, comedian Volodomyr Zelenskiy has won a landslide victory in the presidential election. With the count almost complete, Zelenskiy has taken 73 percent of the vote, while the incumbent Petro Poroshenko has managed only 24 percent. It's a stunning rebuke for Ukraine's political establishment, especially as Zelenskiy has only ever been involved in pretend politics before. Poroshenko was magnanimous in defeat, despite a bitter campaign, conceding early and offering Zelenskiy any help he would need to carry out his transition.
