Chocolate baron Petro Poroshenko claimed a resounding victory yesterday, in Ukraine's presidential election and immediately vowed to end a bloody pro-Russian uprising that thwarted voting across swathes of the separatist east.

The pro-Western self-made billionaire won close to 56 per cent of a vote held while the ex-Soviet country is threatened by disintegration and financial collapse.

US President Barack Obama praised Ukrainians for showing courage by voting in the face of the threat posed by militants who have seized about a dozen cities and towns in a seven-week rebellion.
