Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian businessman and politician

Known as Ukraine's "chocolate king", billionaire Petro Poroshenko owns Eastern Europe’s largest network of confectionery plants. A former Foreign Affairs and Economy Minister, Poroshenko explains why he actively supports the protest movement in Kiev and warns President Yanukovich that his country faces a tragedy if it doesn’t sign a free trade deal with the EU. He believes two-thirds of Ukrainians agree with the demonstrators and foresees that this spontaneous civil movement will not die out.
