Ukrainians prepare to elect president

Poll on Sunday seen as the only way out of the biggest geopolitical crisis in Europe since the end of Cold War.

    Ukrainian voters who can get to a polling station, will choose their new president on Sunday.

    The vote is seen by many as the only way out of the biggest geopolitical crisis in Europe since the end of Cold War. 

    Armed men in the largely Russian-speaking southeast of the country are doing their best to disrupt the election there.

    Many ethnic Russians want a united Ukraine.
