TIRASPOAL, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Leader of the Dniester republic Yevgeny Shevchuk pardoned a citizen of Ukraine convicted early this year “of slander and interfering with citizens’ exercising their right of suffrage,” the press service of the president of the unrecognized republic told ltar-Tass on Thursday.
Dmitry Gasanenko, an artist decorator from Kirovograd, was arrested last year for circulating slanderous leaflets and pamphlets attacking Shevchuk who then ran for president. It was found that he had operated in a group of foreign political technologists who were lucky to leave the territory of the republic by then. Gasanenko was sentenced to three years of the deprivation of freedom, to serve the term in a correctional colony with a general regime.
Despite black PR, Shevchuk won by a large margin the presidential election in December last. “It was an unusual election campaign. It was marked, on the one hand, by tight competition and, on the other, by the unprecedented onslaught of black PR,” he said after the voting.
