NEWS ITEM: As the Oct. 28 parliament election approaches more and more politicians are bribing voters with cheap food supplies. Activists and other citizens who receive the products have published many of the pictures online displaying its usual content – a pack of buckwheat, sugar, a bottle of sunflower oil, canned milk and a pack of tea. A leaflet with the picture of the candidate is also part of the package. When news media made pictures of a Party of Regions candidates handing out gifts in Kharkiv public, a party official, Olena Oleshko, denied the gifts amount to a bribe. “This is not a bribe,” Oleshko told the local Kommentarii newspaper.
