Polls opened in Ukraine on Sunday for the second round of the presidential elections as the voters face a choice between incumbent President Pyotr Poroshenko and actor Vladimir Zelensky.

In the first round, Zelensky won more than 30% of the vote, almost double what Poroshenko got when he finished in the second place with approximately 16%.

Earlier, Russia said the new president of Ukraine will need to work to normalize relations with Moscow for the benefit of both countries.
