 Communist Party Leader Petro Symonenko has announced the withdrawal of his candidacy from the presidential elections in Ukraine.

 ''We understand that the fight against censorship and dissent gives the only answer to the question of the elections: in our opinion they will be illegitimate. Therefore, the Communist Party has decided and today we, Communists, have withdrawn our candidate to save Ukraine from arbitrariness, which takes place today,'' the Communist Party leader said during the debate between the presidential candidates on the air of the UT-1 TV Channel on Friday.
