At night of 27 October, persons unknown massively pasted campaign materials without any imprint in Chernivtsi. The leaflets contain an appeal to vote for the candidate Volodymyr Ked. The leaflets are designed using the colours of the United Opposition. Let us remind that Volodymyr Ked is registered as a self-nominated candidate.


This fact has the elements of violation of Section 2, Article 70  (“Election campaigning shall cease at midnight on the last Friday before the voting day.”) and Section 7, Article 69 (“Printed campaigning materials shall contain information on the commissioner of these materials, the institution who did the printing, or an indication that the printing was done using the equipment owned by the party, circulation, and information on persons responsible for the publication.”) of the Law On election of People's Deputies of Ukraine.
