Who is the comedian poised to win Ukraine’s election? | Ukraine News

Volodymyr Zelenskyi is the frontrunner to become Ukraine’s next president in Sunday’s second-round runoff against incumbent Petro Poroshenko.

The actor and comedian has a multimillion-dollar TV production company, but his only experience in politics is playing the president on television.

Al Jazeera’s Robin Forestier-Walker went to Zelenskiy’s hometown of Kryvyi Rih, a city of steel and iron, to find out what people think of their local comedian-turned-politician.
