KIEV, October 23. /TASS/. Unidentified persons have tried to set on fire the office of one of the candidates to Odessa city council using Molotov cocktails, Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s regional department said on Friday.
"The incident occurred on the Gagarin Prospekt. An investigative group from Shevchenkovsky police department has immediately gone to the site. Law enforcers established that unidentified persons tried to break a window in the waiting room of an office of one of candidates for deputy position in the Odessa city council," the department said.
The unidentified persons can face charges of hooliganism. Local election in Ukraine will be held on Sunday, October 25.
On Thursday, Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov said he is concerned with incidents ahead of local election in Ukraine from the point of view of democratic nature.
"The media report — not only Russian, but also foreign media — about what is going on there [in Ukraine]. Candidates are shot at, beaten. Thousands of unregistered bulletins are found, and so on. This is what really concerns me from the point of view of the democratic nature of the elections," Ivanov told journalists.
He said the example was the opposition bloc that was suspended from election in Kharkov "without any grounds." "Is this democratic?" Ivanov asked.
