Ukraine's president-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy has arrived in Turkey for a vacation following a Sunday's election victory.

 

The comedian-turned-politician on Friday checked into a five-star hotel in Güvercinlik, a popular vacation spot in southwestern Turkey's Bodrum. He will spend the weekend at the hotel with his family. "We are flying to Turkey. I will take my children to an entertainment festival," Zelenskiy wrote on social media before his arrival in the country.

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

 

Zelenskiy, who is also a comedian, won Sunday's runoff election by a landslide, according to exit polls.

 

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%. The official announcement of his win will be made on May 1 and he is supposed to take office within a month.
