Ukraine fix Monday for President elect, Volodymyr Zelensky’s inauguration

Intro

The inauguration of elected president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, has been fixed for Monday, according to reports
Zelensky had wanted to hold the inauguration on Sunday, but it was shifted because of the mourning for victims of Stalin-era repressions in the former-Soviet country.

The 41-year-old comedy actor, whose only previous experience in politics was playing the president in a television series, crushed the incumbent Petro Poroshenko in a runoff vote on April 21, in which he took 73.2 percent of the vote.

He repeatedly accused MPs of deliberately postponing the inauguration. But they defeated him and voted in favour of holding it on Monday, with 315 backing the date and two opposing.
