The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

Lviv, September 14 – UDAR Party leader Vitali Klitschko has said he expects the budget of the party's election campaign not to exceed UAH 90 million.

"We calculated that this campaign will cost us UAH 90 million, and I assumed a significant part of these funds. I'm also very grateful to the branches of the party and small and medium enterprises that assumed funding in the regions. The main share of these funds is being spent on outdoor advertising, advertising on TV and support for election headquarters," he said at a press conference in Lviv on Friday.

Klitschko said that there were no oligarchs in the party and that reports of the presence of people from the entourage of well-known Ukrainian businessmen Ihor Kolomoisky or Dmytro Firtash among UDAR's candidates for MP were based only on the fact that "someone is familiar with someone."
