(Kiev) -- A pro-Europe billionaire is going to become Ukraine's next president. Voters Sunday elected Petro Poroshenko, who secured enough votes to avoid a runoff election in June. Many in Ukraine see the election as the most important since the country broke from Russia more than 20 years ago. The election went through despite sporadic outbursts of violence and pro-Russian separatists blocking off polling places in eastern cities.
