    For the first time in the history of independent Ukraine, seven months before the presidential election, it is difficult to determine not only who the most likely winner will be, but also which two candidates will make it into the second round. A victory for any politician in the first round (31 March 2019) now seems out of the question. Opinion polls unequivocally indicate that Yulia Tymoshenko enjoys the greatest support. At the same time, over 20% of voters do not know or do not want to disclose who they will vote for; over 10% would choose someone who is not included in the polls, and almost half would look for an alternative among new candidates. The main contenders, apart from the pro-Russian candidates, basically do not differ in their views on which way Ukraine should develop strategically. Each of them has declared their support for Ukraine's integration with the EU and NATO, the continuation of reforms, and political and economic modernisation similar to the Western model.
