DONETSK, October 29 (Itar-Tass) — Women inmates at the Kachanovo penitentiary near Kharkov took an active part in the October 28 parliamentary elections in Ukraine. According to reports received by the Central Electoral Commission, 938 out of 971 people included in the ballot lists cast their ballots last Sunday.
Yulia Timoshenko, the leader of the united opposition party Batkivshchina and Ukraine’s former prime minister, who is serving a seven-year prison sentence at the Kachanovo penitentiary was one of 24 people at the Kharkov constituency No. 173 to vote for Batkivshchina. A ballot box had been brought to a hospital in Kharkov where Timoshenko is undergoing treatment.
By comparison, the ruling Party of Regions got 886 votes in the same constituency. Such a result may be caused by Timoshenko’s behavior and the actions of her supporters who had stormed and besieged the prison for several months.
