Ukraine's presidential election hopeful Volodymyr Zelensky says in case he wins the election runoff, he is not willing to form a coalition with the ex-members of [pro-Russian political force of the times of former president Viktor Yanukovych] the Party of regions Yuriy Boyko and Viktor Medvedchuk, as well as with the incumbent president, Petro Poroshenko.

Asked by RBC-Ukraine whether a situation could be imagined where Zelensky forms a coalition with Boyko and Medvedchuk, Zelensky responded "No."

The presidential candidate added he did not intend to form a union with the incumbent president, Petro Poroshenko, who is also his rival in the second round of the election.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Yulia Tymoshenko, leader of the Batkivshchyna Party who stopped short of making it to the election runoff, said she was not going to support any of the presidential candidates in the second round, and also said she was not in talks with Zelensky about a possible coalition.
