Ukraines Zelensky in Turkey for holiday

Ukraine's Vladimir Zelensky, who gained an apparent win in last week’s presidential polls, traveled to Turkey for a two-day weekend holiday with his family.

 “We are flying to Turkey. I will take my children to an entertainment festival,” Zelensky wrote on social media on April 26.           

He will return to Ukraine after a two-day stay in Turkey, said Zelensky, who he did not take any day off on the weekends for four months due to the election campaign.         

He did not give any details of their destination in Turkey but he landed to the coastal town of Bodrum.    

Zelensky, who is also a comedian, won the election by a landslide, according to the results.

As a candidate of the Servant of the People Party, he secured 73.2% of the votes, while his rival Petro Poroshenko trailed at 25.3%.         

Zelensky, in his campaign, has widely used social media networks, interacted directly with citizens during TV shows and cabaret concerts, as well as used short video clips, polls and surveys.
