The Ministry of Internal Affairs emphasizes that one of the forms of falsification from the time of the election campaign was the provision of material assistance by local authorities. The National Police got interested in these facts and are looking for the grounds for legal qualification.
“The number of people who received financial assistance, this is usually one thousand hryvnias, increased tenfold, especially in Dnipro and Vasilkov in the Kyiv region. This financial assistance was granted in violation of the generally accepted rules what gave us grounds for qualifying this as a hidden bribing of voters, and this, of course, coincided with the rush time of the election campaign,” adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs Volodymyr Filenko said.
According to him, the voters, who had received financial assistance earlier, receive phone calls with reminders that they have to vote “correctly”.
