“I would like to warn all officials at all levels again –
interference in the electoral process is a violation of the law, and we
will check every report of it. Both the system of law enforcement
agencies, and, of course, the courts, will respond in line with the
existing law,” he said at the Council of Regions on Wednesday.

Yanukovych said there had recently been complaints from different political parties as regards various violations.

“I would like you to pay attention to violations in sensitive areas,
such as obstructing the work of journalists and the media. If you
receive such complaints, you must respond immediately and in any case do
not allow pressure on the media at any level,” the president said.
