The election campaign of the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union is funded solely by the party members, while nominees in single-seat constituencies are financing their election campaigns themselves, Svoboda leader Oleh Tiahnybok said.

"We will spend as much as we are able to collect," he said closing the 24th congress on Wednesday, when asked how much the party intended to spend on the parliamentary elections.

"The election campaign is like a black hole: no matter how much money you invest in it, it all will be absorbed and it will never suffice," Tiahnybok said.
