The ambassadors of the Group of Seven (G7) countries sent a letter to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov with a warning about the possible threat of disrupting the presidential elections slated for next week. Radio Liberty reports this, providing the copies of two letters by the G-7, which consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In their letters dating back to March 15, G7 urges Ukraine to undertake the measures against the violent political extremist movements that could undermine the coming elections and usurp the Ukrainian National Police.
Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov confirmed the fact of receiving the letter from the G7.
“Yes, I have got the letter, in which the ambassadors ask for an honest voting procedure and for preventing radical electoral to disrupt the process. They also wrote that they appreciate the efforts and points of view of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on this issue”, Avakov said.
Earlier, the hackers from the Russian Federation have spread the fake messages in the behalf of Arsen Avakov, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, where they supported one of the presidential candidates in Ukranian elections.
As we reported earlier, The Central Election Commission (CEC) of Ukraine has created 199 district election commissions for the upcoming presidential election on March 31.
The election campaign has officially started on December 31, 2018. Registration of the candidates was closed on February 4, 2019, and on February 9, the final list of presidential candidates is expected to appear. The candidates would be able to withdraw their candidacy until March 7, 2019.
