The presence of the illegal campaigning became one of the main problems of the parliamentary elections. Chairman of the Committee of voters of Ukraine Oleksiy Koshel said this during the press conference, as Ukrinform reports.

“This campaign is the record for the all history of observing by our organization, in other word the record one of  twenty five and a half years on the facts of illegal campaigning," Koshel said.

As it was mentioned, the most of the illegal campaigning materials were spread by representatives of such political parties as Servant of the People, Opposition Platform – For Life and Opposition Bloc. The unlawful materials were also spread by five additional political powers such as Agrarian Party of Ukraine, Svoboda Party, Holos (The Voice), European Solidarity and Batkivshchyna (Fatherland), as well as by the number of candidates of the single-member constituencies.
