Incumbent Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko may have found a super weapon to defeat his main political opponent, comic Volodimir Zelensky, in the second round of the presidential election, which is set to be held later in April.

Mr Poroshenko is going to rename a street in the capital of Kiev after John McCain. Poroshenko announced his plan after meeting with McCain’s widow, Cindy, over the weekend.

Poreshenko described McCain as “a great friend and advocate of Ukraine”. He emphasized the “historic importance of Senator McCain’s heritage in establishing and building a new independent Ukraine.”

Kudrya was a wartime hero who led the Kiev resistance against the Nazis during World War II. As a Soviet intelligence officer, Kudrya sabotaged Nazi infrastructure and assassinated German soldiers, until he was caught, tortured, and killed by the Gestapo in 1942.

However, for the modern Ukrainian government, McCain, who used to be a long-time supporter of the 2014 coup and lobbist of weapon deliveries to Ukraine, is apparently a more important historic person.
