The key task of the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) at the upcoming parliamentary elections is to change the consciousness of Ukrainian citizens, and not to receive as many votes as possible, Leader of the CPU Petro Symonenko has said.

"I think we've left in the past the time when voters trusted [to candidates] for a five-hryvnia surplus to pensions and wages and again and again voted for those who were not going to fulfill their promises and do anything for the country. We believe that today the society wants to see the political force, which by its deeds, and not by words, proves that it did not change its ideas and priorities over many years," Symonenko said at a meeting with voters in Pavlohrad, Dnipropetrovsk region, on Wednesday, according to the party's press service.

He expressed hope that Ukraine will return to left-wing ideas following other countries.
