    MOSCOW--Petro Poroshenko will be inaugurated as Ukraine's president on June 7 in a low-key ceremony, his spokeswoman said Thursday.

    Mr. Poroshenko, a pro-Europe chocolate baron who won a solid 54.7% of the vote in Sunday's presidential election, doesn't plan a celebration on Kiev's main square for the ceremony, his spokeswoman Irina Friz told the Interfax news agency.
