President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy does not see any politician who could compete with him in the future presidential elections. His main "rivals" remain poverty, war in Donbas and poor infrastructure. The Head of State said this in an interview to VIP with Natalia Moseychuk program on 1+1 TV channel.
"I have no competitors. My competitors are infrastructure, war, people's poverty. This is the most important thing. This is something that will catch up with me, because I want to change it," he said.
Answering the question whether Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko could hypothetically compete in the election, Volodymyr Zelenskyy gave the mayor a piece of advice to focus on solving the capital's infrastructure problems.
"We (President and the Kyiv mayor - ed.) do not have any relations now. He said that we are persecuting him, the authorities are persecuting him because of political competition. It seems to me that he forgot that he is the mayor and decided to start the presidential campaign," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
The President stressed that the mayor of Kyiv should pay attention to his own entourage and the infrastructure of the capital.
"Klitschko has his problems in the capital. Klitschko is a world-famous man, he needs to get rid of those people (from his entourage - ed.)," said the Head of State.
