Opposition leader Klitschko will not run for Ukrainian president

Ukrainian boxer-turned-politician Vitali Klitschko has pulled out of the race for president, throwing his support behind billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko.

His withdrawal sets up a May 25 contest between the man known as the ‘Chocolate King’ and Ukraine’s former prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko.
