Pro-Western and nationalist parties scored a crushing victory on Sunday in Ukraine's snap parliamentary polls, which were boycotted by pro-Russian rebels in the separatist east, exit polls showed.
The Ukrainian president's Petro Poroshenko Bloc and the People's Front group of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk won 23 and 21 percent of the vote respectively, while the Opposition Party linked to ousted Russian-backed president Viktor Yanukovych won nearly eight percent, two respected surveys said.
