You're reading: Large Canada mission to Ukraine expresses concerns about election campaign
on social media

These are
the main findings in an interim report released by Mission Canada after a month
of intensive monitoring by 65 long-term observers in all oblasts of Ukraine.

Taking into
account the importance of the next parliamentary elections in Ukraine and its
impact on democracy in the nation, the Canadian government sent the
largest-ever deployment of election observers to the country. The team already
in place will be joined by 365 short-term observers two weeks ahead of Election
Day. In addition, Canada is sending 10 long-term and 60 short-term observers
attached to the multilateral mission organized by the Organization for Security
and Cooperation in Europe. So, the total number of trained observers from
Canada amounts to 500.

about the overall findings in the interim report, Ann Szyptur, coordinator of
Mission Canada said: “While it is too early to make overall conclusions about
election process, with less than a month to go before voters head to the polls,
the findings rose in our report about procedures and irregularities are cause
for concern.”
