Police in Ukraine is currently working to build a network to bribe or direct influence on voters in the 2019 elections.
Volunteer and activist Roman Sinitsyn wrote about this on his Facebook page.
“Regional police departments all over Ukraine for the last month have been sending requests to different public/municipal institutions to provide data on the party affiliation (!!!) of their employees,” Sinitsyn wrote, adding photographs of relevant documents to the post.
Sinitsyn also said that one of the central figures in the scheme of bribery is Oleg Kozlovsky, former head of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Lugansk region, who was fired in 2018: “Two weeks ago, Kozlovsky was appointed as the second in command of the head of the police of Ukraine, Knyazev.”
According to personal information from the public activist, Kozlovsky will be responsible for bribing and influencing voters: “Kozlovsky is in close contact to the presidential candidate himself (or herself). It was under Kozlovsky that the police chiefs of each oblast introduced the post of “assistant to the elections” and put different, sometimes very interesting, people there.”
“Thus, the Interior Ministry creates the network of bribery or direct influence on voters,” — summed up the public activist.
