Some Party of Regions members shy away from their affiliation
Maksym Lutsky, a lawmaker with the pro-presidential Party of Regions, is shying away from his party affiliation in campaign materials. President Viktor Yanukovych's party is very unpopular in many parts of the nation, despite holding a nationwide lead with 21 percent support of likely voters.
In some parts of the nation, members of the pro-presidential Party of Regions tend to not publicly stress their party affiliation in the run-up to the Oct. 28 parliamentary elections. It appears they fear that doing so will cost votes.
