On the night of Saturday, October 24, Ukraine starts a day of silence before the local elections to be held on October 25.
According to the law, the election campaign ends at 24 hours on the last Friday before election day.
The ban on campaigning on the day of silence does not affect the dissemination of information directly about the elections themselves, calls to take part in them, clarification of legislative norms and the voting procedure.
As we reported earlier, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov issued a statement in which he urged Ukrainians not to violate election legislation.
"I also appeal to the participants of the election process - from candidates to members of the commissions: do not spoil your life with punishment for breaking the law, it is not worth it. Respect yourself and respect the law," Avakov said.
According to him, almost 140,000 of its employees will be involved in ensuring public order during the upcoming local elections.
