Ukraine conflict: Petro Poroshenko pledges to 'end war'

Petro Poroshenko, who looks set to win Ukraine's presidential election, says he wants to "end war and bring peace".

Official results are expected on Monday but exit polls suggest the billionaire confectionary magnate has won the election with about 56% of the vote.

The election came three months after pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych fled Kiev amid bloody street protests and calls for closer ties with the EU.
