In Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, people have been reacting to the news that former boxing champion Vitaly Klitchko has dropped plans to run for president and will instead back billionaire Petro Poroshenko.

“People are still making up their minds (about the candidates) and we still have more time to decide. I would say Poroshenko & Klitschko are completely respected among Ukrainians,” one man told euronews.

Another woman said: “As for me, I’m not really sure. Klitschko is a good guy, but I think he’s not a politician. But he’s the one who cares about Ukraine. Poroshenko is a businessman – that’s my personal opinion.”

Fifteen candidates have submitted papers to the General Election Commission.
