Volodymyr Zelensky will receive the results of blood tests in three days.
On Friday, April 5, presidential candidates Volodymyr Zelensky and Petro Poroshenko passed tests for drugs or alcohol in the blood.
The acting President was tested at the Olimpiysky medical center.
Стадіон, так стадіон. Сьогодні на «Олімпійському» здав усі необхідні аналізи та надав дозвіл на проведення досліджень в різних клініках щодо відсутності алко- та наркотичної залежності. Перші результати будуть оприлюднені буквально за декілька хвилин, далі за кілька годин. Вважаю, що ця процедура проведення аналізів взагалі має бути обов’язковою, тому що питання відсутності алко- та наркозалежності у кандидата у Президенти – це питання національної безпеки.
