Poroshenko will win election - former SBU official

MOSCOW. March 25 (Interfax) - Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko is able to win the presidential election, former Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) official Vasyl Prozorov said.

"Poroshenko will win the [Ukrainian presidential] election because he has a lot of experience of vote-rigging and controls the special services," Prozorov told a press conference in Moscow on Monday.

In speaking about potential violations, Prozorov said that the Elections state analytical system "is controlled by the SBU department of computer and information security."

"Well, it just so happened that the Security Service of Ukraine raised the wages of the employees of this department in February 2019," Prozorov said.

There will be SBU officials in every territorial election commission, who will be, among other things, guarding the election results, he said.
