It is said in the statement released by the White House.

“On behalf of all Americans, I congratulate the people of Ukraine for making their voices heard by voting in their presidential election today. Despite provocations and violence, millions of Ukrainians went to the polls throughout the country, and even in parts of eastern Ukraine, where Russian-backed separatist groups sought to disenfranchise entire regions, some courageous Ukrainians still were able to cast their ballots”, - he said.

"The United States looks forward to working with the next president, as well as the democratically elected parliament, to support Ukraine's efforts to enact important political and economic reforms," said the President of the USA.
