Reuters, KIEV

However, it was the showing of Svoboda, which pursues a strong Ukrainian nationalist agenda and opposes attempts by the Regions to promote the Russian language over Ukrainian, which caught attention on the night.

Svoboda leader Oleh Tyahnybok, a 43-year-old surgeon, pledged to stick by a pre-election agreement to work with Yatsenyuk and other opposition leaders in the new parliament.

He appealed to Klitschko to formally join the united opposition.

“We can only hope that, having looked at the situation which has emerged, Vitaly Klitschko will unite with us,” he said in televised comments.
