The police are investigating one of the presidential candidates due to possible violations during the payment of the deposit with the Central Election Commission. This was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
“Yes, we are conducting an investigation into one of the presidential candidates whose deposit was filled with donations from a number of private individuals, and then it turns out that these private individuals did not know about it,” he said.
Avakov specified that the identity of the suspect will be named by law-enforcers after the end of “procedural action”.
Earlier, Avakov said that the police received over 1.8 thousand appeals for violations in the elections.
