Israel on Tuesday said it welcomed the election process in the Ukraine, which will place Petro Poroshenko in the president’s office.

“We respect the Ukrainian people's choice and hope that calm and peace will return to Ukraine soon,” the Foreign Ministry said.

Poroshenko, a billionaire confectionary magnate, won Sunday's election and has vowed to crush a revolt by pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine after Russia's seizure of Crimea.

“Israel welcomes the election process which was conducted in Ukraine in a responsible and democratic manner, in which the President was elected with a majority of votes. We respect the Ukrainian people's choice and hope that calm and peace will return to Ukraine soon,” the Foreign Ministry said.

“Israel remains committed to strengthening its bilateral ties and cooperation with Ukraine, and looks forward to working with its leadership to further promote the relations between our two countries,” the Foreign Ministry said.
