“On election day, 132,500 workers of the Interior Ministry will be involved, including the operational presence of rapid response teams, special forces and for the first time, the united aviation security of the Interior Ministry. Moreover, we enhance control of the state border, firefighting and pyrotechnic detachments,” Arsen Avakov, the Interior Minister said.
According to him, all detachments work in the enhanced regime and they are ready to come to the aid and provide protection and security.
He also reported that as of July 19, the National Police hold the investigation of over 6,000 reports on the election campaign.
“If you see that someone violates these rules, you should immediately report to the members of the election commission. If you see the violation of the public order, you should appeal to the police officer on duty near the election commission. You can also get in touch with the Situation HQ of the Interior Ministry,” Avakov said.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky officially dissolved the Verkhovna Rada and appointed the snap elections for July 21. The Cabinet of Ministers should provide the funding of the elections.
On May 24, the electoral process kicked off in Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian legislation, the electoral process of snap elections begins on the next day after the President’s decree on early termination of the mandate of Verkhovna Rada and appointment of the new elections is published. Therefore, the electoral process starts on May 24, without the Central Commission making any decisions.
