Politicians will use social tariffs, retirement wages, and environmental issues as the most popular topics for manipulations during the parliamentary election in Ukraine in autumn 2019. Correspondents and experts of Ukraine's Channel 5, which belong to president Poroshenko, assumed that in their recent commentaries.

According to Oleksandr Solontai from the Institute for Political Education, environment protection will be one of the major ones during this race.

'In my opinion, in 2019, the environmental topics have every chance to make it one of the main topics of the election!', he said.

According to the experts and reporters of the TV channel, the lawmakers added this topic to the typical list of their pre-election promises. However, these environmental issues are still neglected every time. For one, the incomes from the environmental protection tax paid by enterprises are actually re-directed for other needs.
