Businessman Ihor Kolomoyskyy is ready to advise Ukrainian presidential election winner Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

 “I am ready to help him with advice and sometimes I help him, but this is not a mass phenomenon,” he said in an interview with the Russian NTV channel.

He said the last time he called Zelenskyy was two or three days ago.

He also commented on the status in which he is ready to work with the future president of Ukraine.

"Well, the most I can do is to advise him on something," he said.

Kolomoyskyy has lived in Israel since September 2018. He promised to return to Ukraine after the Central Electoral Commission publishes the official results of the presidential election.

According to early results of the 21 April runoff, 24.45% of voters voted for incumbent President Petro Poroshenko and 73.22% for his opponent, showman Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The Central Electoral Commission said it would announce the official election results on 30 April.
