It should be noted that immediately after the closing of the polling stations at 20.00, TSN announced the results of its own exit poll, which was jointly conducted by two reputable research companies - Kantar TNS and Info Sapiens, on behalf of the "1+1" channel. 20,000 respondents aged 18 and over were interviewed by the personal interview method at the exit from 600 polling stations throughout Ukraine (except for special and foreign stations). According to the results, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, who was voted by 30.1% of the respondents, and Petro Poroshenko, who was voted for by 18.5% of the respondents, will go to the second round of the Presidential elections. Next in the rating are Yulia Tymoshenko (14.0%), Yuriy Boyko (9.1%), Anatolii Hrytsenko (7.6%), Ihor Smeshko (6.6%). The theoretical sampling error is no more than 0.7%. The research methodology was developed according to international standards, taking into account the many years of experience of the employees of both companies in conducting exit polls during the previous elections in Ukraine.

We will remind you that "1+1" topped the rating of TV channels with the highest level of trust. According to the results of a social survey published by the Center for Social and Marketing Research "Sosys" , the share of Ukrainians who trust the news on the "1+1" channel is 45.2%, which significantly exceeds the indicators of the closest competitors.
