KIEV, October 6. /TASS/. Ukrainian Radical Party leader Oleg Lyashko launched on Monday an election campaign in a half-an-hour video shown on Ukrainian television.
He said the party first task was to win in the parliamentary election due on October 26, “to form the government and take the post of prime minister”, then win elections for local authorities and come first in a presidential election in the future.
Lyashko’s speech was full of populist promises, while political opponents were compared with “a herd of pigs”.
He said the main foreign policy task was Ukraine’s EU and NATO membership. The party leader branded oligarchs as “main enemy” of the economy, while reforms were reduced to the need to “sack all pensioners and let the young people earn money”.
Lyashko did not go into details of policy towards the restive south-east of the country, saying only “peace must reign in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions,” but without explaining how.
“Russian cannot be a state language,” he said unequivocally.
All 29 political parties taking part in the early election to the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will get all in all 60 minutes of air time on First National TV Channel and 50 minutes on National Radio.
October 25 will be ‘day of silence’ before the polling stations will open at 8 am, local time, on October 26.
