Five months ahead of presidential elections in Ukraine, sociologists say it is too early to make predictions. Disillusionment with the politicians who came to power as a result of a popular uprising in 2014 and promised change but failed to deliver is high. Therefore, many voters are undecided or even determined not to cast their ballots, according to opinion polls. However, by the logic of local politics, the race will almost certainly be between the incumbent, President Petro Poroshenko, and his rival of many years, Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister (January-September 2005; December 2007-March 2010).
