According to the inspection results by the Central Election Commission (CEC) of Ukraine, when Pyotr Poroshenko registered as a presidential candidate he filed a declaration with the following violations: an undeclared yacht, apartments and a country house, which were not listed in Ukrainian registries. However, this was not enough reason for refusing registration as a presidential candidate.
