KIEV, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/.The presidential election campaign in Ukraine will start on February 25, Central Election Commission Chairman Mikhail Okhendovsky said on Monday, February 24.
The decision on the registration of candidates will be made within five days after the submission of the required documents to the Commission, he said. A candidate will have to make a deposit of about 280,000 U.S. dollars.
