The Front for Change party claims there have been violations of election legislation by election commissions across the country, which denied registration or canceled the registration of representative of the Front for Change party, Party Leader Arseniy Yatseniuk has said. Yatseniuk announced this during the meeting with the residents of the town of Krasnoarmiysk, Donetsk region, where the party's office was attacked on Saturday, the party's press service reported on Monday.

"The pre-election news has turned into criminal reports. People are being threatened; the documents at election districts and in election commissions are being crudely forged. They are fighting against the Front for Change across the country," Yatseniuk said.

He stressed that Donetsk region is a typical example of how the election campaign is being intervened by criminal circles.

"We are being removed from registration at majority constituencies, people are being forced to withdraw from the lists, doctors and teachers - all the people who work in the public sector are being pressed on in order to deprive them of their right to be nominated from the Front for Change party," the politician said.

These tactics are one of many being employed by POR (Party of Regions) in order to ensure they have control even more tightly secured,,,along with threats of job losses etc etc if employees of POR oligarchs and supporters,,,(where often voters are given a cmaera phone on entering the polling station to record there votes by POR officials) the elections unless wholly monitored by mass non aligned persons will be very corrupt...The practices being used are very varied from the changes to registration to disruption by authorities to party offices to intimidation of employees....unless a whole and impartial study of the election is carried out and proof gathered it will be as the election declared legal and fair...(IE The USA and Europe require something from Russia so allow Ukraine to slip further under its sphere of control and domination) How long before there are protests and suchlike,,,then will the Russian military join in to so called protect Russian citizens and Russian assetts within Ukraine as it did in Georgia,,,when they where duped by promises of assistance etc in there conflict with Russian dominated regions ??? There is a much larger picture at play here than just an election,,,Russia sees food production that is possible in Ukraine as a major world comodity,,that will shortly be in demand in both its home country (Russia) and the world with the recent weather changes this is becoming more so.
