Putin’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the posters with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin which are used within Poroshenko’s election campaign, as TASS news agency reported.
“We choose Putin, we will see the choice of Ukraine’s nation,” Peskov commented the posters with the posters of both of the presidents.
As it was reported, Poroshenko’s team depicted him face-to-face with Putin and "April 21. Decisive battle," thus hinting that those who would vote against Poroshenko in the second round of presidential elections, automatically vote for Putin.
Numerous sources state Poroshenko resorts to such smear campaigning with labeling his opponents someone’s puppets (let us recall labeling presidential aspirant Yulia Tymoshenko Putin’s agent) on advice from his new political expert Moshe Klughaft, Israeli political technologist, is assisting Poroshenko’s in his reelection. Klughaft is known for his aggressive, negative style of campaign management, Ukrainian MP Serhiy Leshchenko assures. Poroshenko’s press people denied this.
