These elections are the dirtiest in the history of Ukraine. For the first time in 23 years of independence, armed men seized the polling stations in order to falsify the election results. This was stated by the Opposition Bloc leader Yuriy Boyko at a press conference in Kyiv on Saturday.
"This is a very dangerous precedent, because if these cases do not receive proper evaluation and the guilty are not punished - it will cause direct damage to the image of the country and President. Also, it would set a precedent for all other elections, mayors, governors, heads of village councils as a possible way to win the election. That is, if you want to be mayor - hire gunmen to "provide" voting results. And do not hold elections, your position does not need to be heard by people, you do not have to do anything! You just need to have 10 machine gunners, who will monitor at night all the polling sites and make the election results which you need", - said Yuriy Boyko.
The party leader said that the Opposition Bloc has appealed to President Poroshenko and to law enforcement authorities regarding the falsification of election results in certain areas, with the requirement to ensure a fair vote count.
"We continue to defend the interests of the voters in these problem areas. We will fight to the end and will not leave these cases without reaction, because if there is no proper response from law enforcement authorities, this would create a very dangerous precedent for the future of our country", - summed up Yuriy Boyko.
